Former Oklahoma State receiver Justin Blackmon was arrested early Sunday morning in Stillwater on a complaint of aggravated DUI.

Blackmon, 22, was stopped at approximately 3:01 a.m. in a white Chevy Tahoe going 60 miles per hour in a 35 mph zone, according to the police report. He was driving left of center and failed to yield for four blocks, until stopping in a gas station parking lot near McElroy road and Perkins road.

According to the police report, Blackmon was observed to have an odor of an alcoholic beverage. He was unsteady on his feet, had slurred speech and admitted to consuming alcohol before driving.

He was placed under arrest and transported to the Stillwater City jail, according to the police report. There, he agreed to take a breathalyzer test and blew a .24, well over the legal limit.

In Oklahoma, an aggravated DUI is when the driver has a blood alcohol content of .15 or higher.

Blackmon posted a $1,000 bond early Sunday afternoon and was released from jail.

There were no other passengers in the car.

For Blackmon, who was selected fifth overall in April’s NFL Draft by the Jacksonville Jaguars, this would be his second alcohol related offense.

He was arrested in October 2010 on a misdemeanor DUI complaint in Carrolton, Texas. Returning to Stillwater after a Monday night Dallas Cowboys game, Blackmon was arrested at 3:45 a.m. Using radar, police determined he was going 92 miles per hour in a 60 mph zone.

After the 2010 incident, which he was suspended one game for, Blackmon seemed remorse in a mid-week press conference.
