Justin Blackmon's NFL career is getting off to a rocky start after the Jaguars' wide receiver was arrested for aggravated DUI on Sunday. Jacksonville traded up in April's draft to select Blackmon 5th overall.
Blackmon was arrested early Sunday morning in Stillwater Oklahoma for a charge tied to a blood alcohol level of .15 or more. Kelly Hines of Tulsa World was the first to report the arrest.
This is not Blackmon's first DUI arrest. In October of 2010 he was arrested for a DUI in Texas while driving to a Dallas Cowboys game where it was reported that he was driving 92 mph in a 60 mph zone. Blackmon did not have permission to go to the game because of a suspension by Oklahoma State head coach Mike Gundy.
Two DUI arrests in 18 months should terrify the Jacksonville Jaguars.
