Cardinals undrafted free agent wide receiver Jermiah Braswell was arrested on Friday and charged with OVI after wrecking his Camaro into Lake Erie.  According to reports, the former Youngstown State star had no idea how he ended up in the water and was still attempting to drive the car when police arrived.

From ABC13:

Witnesses tell police the Camaro was traveling at a high rate of speed when it crossed over a long grassy area and "flew off the embankment into the lake."

According to a news release from Put-In-Bay Police, "As officers went into the water and approached the Camaro, they found the driver was still in the driver's seat trying to drive forward. He told officers that he was 'stuck' and didn't know what happened. As officers spoke with the driver, they noticed that his speech was slurred and he was unable to explain how his Camaro ended up in the water."

Braswell's bad luck continued when the Cardinals found out about the arrest and released him.  It's a really tough break for the 23-year-old.  The worst part might be that he didn't get to enjoy flying through the air before landing in the lake.
