NFL Player Jermiah Lamont Braswell lost control of his car which drove down the shoreline.
Police noticed that his speech was slurred when he was asked questions about the incident.
He’s been subsequently charged with an OVI which could lead to serious consequences.
On Friday, June 26th, NFL Player Jermiah Lamont Braswell drove his orange Chevrolet Camaro into Lake Erie. This was not a joy ride, or at the very least, the ride did not end well. When the police arrived on the scene, Braswell was still in his car attempting to drive away. Soon after, the story went viral on the web.
Witnesses said that the Chevrolet Camaro was traveling at a high rate of speed when it crossed a large grassy area. From there, it flew off a cement embankment and landed in Lake Erie. To the officers that found him, he told them that he was stuck and had no clue what had just transpired.
13abc WTVG TV reported that as officers spoke to Braswell, the 23-year-old Toledo resident’s speech was slurred. He was arrested once the results of a portable breath test showed that his Blood Alcohol Content was indeed in excess of Ohio’s legal limit.
Luckily, no one was hurt in the incident.
