Moments after Nate Burleson smashed his SUV into a median — a witness called 911 and said, “He was losing his balance” … and that he believed the Detroit Lions star appeared to be intoxicated.

Burleson wrecked last Monday night, and police have said they do not believe alcohol or drugs were a factor — but on this 911 tape you clearly hear the caller say, “He looks a little messed up. He”s walking around, but if I had my guess I”d say he”s drunk.”

Nate told police he lost control while reaching for pizza boxes that were falling off his front seat.

our sources spoke to a witness at the pub and pizza spot where Burleson had been hanging out that night who told us he had a couple of beers.

However, when we spoke to the manager at the bar … he told us Nate had “maybe one drink” in the 4 hours he was there.
