Help After pluggin in an OTG cable, my S3 is dead!

Im using a VZW Samsung Galaxy S3 16 Blue. I plug in a brand new OTG cable for the first time, the phone sees it "usb connector connected", then the screen shuts off.

The phone is totally unresponsive now. I tried to reboot it and shut it off but the screen still has no activity. No LED activity either.

I removed the battery for a minute and tried it all again, still nothing.

The phone does get warm when its plugged into the charger, not the battery but the phone itself.

Im stumped, this phone is less than a month old, whats going on?
