'I'm stuck!' NFL star PLUNGES Chevrolet into lake while DRUNK & speeding – then reportedly refuses chemical test after arrest

'I'm stuck!' NFL star PLUNGES Chevrolet into lake while DRUNK & speeding – then reportedly refuses chemical test after arrest
Dramatic photos have shown the submerged wreckage of a luxury orange car owned by Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Jermiah Braswell, who told police that he was "stuck" and did not know how he had crashed into a lake at high speed.

The NFL rookie was arrested for driving under the influence after he was found trying to steer his Chevrolet Camaro forward while complaining of being "stuck" in Lake Erie, police reports said.

Witnesses reportedly saw Braswell speeding the striking vehicle along a road and through a grassy area before it flew off an embankment and landed in the water.

Braswell was said to have been unable to explain how the car ended up there while slurring his speech in front of officers who were called to the early-evening scene.

The car remained trapped between a rock and the waves on Sunday night, sources told local news station Cleveland19.

Braswell, who only joined the Cardinals as a free agent at the end of April, exceeded Ohio's legal limit for blood alcohol content but refused to submit to a chemical test, according to the Port Clinton News Herald.

The Toledo-born 23-year-old starred at college level for Youngstown State and Central Catholic, playing his part in two state championship-winning teams.

No passengers were in the car and the Cardinals are yet to release a statement on the incident.
