Earlier this month, Jacksonville Jaguars running back Denard Robinson was found asleep behind the wheel of a sinking car.

Video footage obtained Wednesday revealed the moment that led to the accident.

The 25-year-old Robinson apparently fell asleep while stopped at an intersection in Jacksonville early in the morning on July 3. His car then drifted into a nearby pond.

A police report said Robinson and a female companion in the passenger seat were both found asleep just after 4 a.m. on July 3. Both walked away without injuries, and police determined Robinson was not impaired during the accident.

After the accident, Robinson warned about the dangers of drowsy driving.
