EDMOND — Former All-American Oklahoma State wide receiver Justin Blackmon was arrested Wednesday evening on a marijuana possession complaint.

Police found a marijuana blunt weighing three grams in a cigar box inside a car Blackmon was driving following a traffic stop, according to an Edmond police report.

The arrest is the latest in a series of missteps for the Jacksonville Jaguars wideout, who is currently on indefinite suspension from the NFL. However, according to a social media report from jaguars.com senior writer John Oehser, team owner Shad Kahn does not plan on cutting Blackmon from the team.

About 6:30 p.m. Wednesday at W Edmond Rd. and S Kelly Ave., police initiated a traffic stop when Blackmon made an improper left-hand lane change across a solid center line.

When an officer approached Blackmon, he smelled a strong odor of marijuana in the car. Blackmon then admitted to smoking while driving the vehicle, the report states.

Blackmon was “extremely honest and cooperative” as police booked him into Edmond City jail, the report states. He was later released on $657 bond, police spokeswoman Jennifer Monroe said.

Wednesday’s arrest marks Blackmon’s third run in with the law in the past four years.
