Jermiah Braswell Wild Arrest Video Shows Cops Pulling NFL WR Out of Lake
4:04 PM PT — TMZ Sports has obtained the police footage of Braswell’s Saturday arrest … and it’s WILD.
In the video, several cops ordered Braswell out of the Camaro that’s stalled on a lake embankment … and you can see in the clip, Jermiah struggles to walk toward cops from the water.
Eventually, Put-In-Bay PD officers are able to grab him and put him in cuffs … and for the next several minutes, he tried to explain to them what happened.
The 23-year-old insisted he wasn’t drunk “at all” … and told the officers, “Honestly, I play for the NFL, dawg.”
Braswell underwent several field sobriety tests … and appeared to bomb them all — badly.
Cops then threw the cuffs on him and took him to the station … where he was booked on charges of driving while under the influence and reckless operation, per the police report.
In police photos from the scene … you can see just how crazy Braswell’s alleged drive into the lake was — there are tire marks on the grass and debris everywhere.
NFL rookie Jermiah Braswell‘s time with the Arizona Cardinals is over before it even began — the wide receiver has been cut after allegedly drunkenly driving his Camaro into Lake Erie.
The 23-year-old ex-Youngstown State star — who signed as an undrafted free agent in April — was arrested for operating a vehicle while intoxicated in Put-in-Bay, OH on Saturday … after cops found him in the driver’s seat trying to move the vehicle out of the water.
According to witnesses, the Toledo native was traveling at “a very high rate of speed” on the road before the crash … driving onto grass, off an embankment and into the water.
When cops spoke with Braswell, they claim he was slurring his speech and had no idea how he ended up in the lake … and decided to conduct field sobriety tests.
Braswell also took a breathalyzer test, which reportedly showed a BAC higher than the Ohio limit.
The NFL transaction report shows the Cards decided to part ways with the rookie on Monday … ending his short stint with the team.
