Jaguars' Rookie Receiver Justin Blackmon Arrested For Aggravated DUI
Jacksonville Jaguars receiver Justin Blackmon, 22, was arrested Sunday on an aggravated DUI charge in Stillwater, Okla., where he was reported to have been driving with three times the legal alcohol limit.
Blackmon, a first-round draft pick by the Jaguars, was pulled over around 3 a.m. and reportedly registered a .24 on a breathalyzer test, which is three times the legal limit of .08, according to the Payne County sheriff's department, reports the Los Angeles Times.
"He was unsteady on his feet, his speech was slurred, and his eyes were glassy and bloodshot," said Stillwater police spokesperson Capt. Randy Dickerson. "He admitted to consuming alcohol prior to driving."
Blackmon was released from jail on Sunday on $1,000 bond. This is not Blackmon's first brush with the law. He was arrested in Dallas, also on a DUI charge, in 2010.
