WTVG in Toledo, Ohio, reported Sunday that police in Put-in-Bay, Ohio, arrested Braswell and charged him with operating a vehicle while intoxicated. Eyewitnesses said he had driven his Chevrolet Camaro off an embankment and into Lake Erie.
WTVG shared a statement from authorities:
"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."
WTVG reported Braswell's blood alcohol content exceeded Ohio's legal limit.
The 23-year-old announced in April he had signed with the Cardinals as an undrafted free agent. The Toledo native spent his college career at Youngstown State. He caught 51 passes for 986 yards and 11 touchdowns in 40 games for the Penguins.
Urban noted Arizona added four other first-year wideouts following the conclusion of the draft.
