EDMOND — Former All-American Oklahoma State wide receiver Justin Blackmon was arrested Wednesday evening on a complaint of marijuana possession.
Police found what they identified as a marijuana blunt weighing three grams in a cigar box inside a car Blackmon was driving, according to an Edmond police report.
The arrest is the latest in a series of missteps for the Jacksonville Jaguars wideout, who is serving an indefinite suspension from the NFL.
Blackmon was stopped by police about 6:30 p.m. Wednesday at W Edmond Road and S Kelly Avenue. Police initiated the traffic stop after Blackmon made an improper lane change into a left-turn lane.
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.
A dash-cam video released Thursday by police shows Blackmon being pulled over, being ordered to stand against his car and being placed in handcuffs. An officer then leads a handcuffed Blackmon out of frame.
Blackmon was “extremely honest and cooperative” as police booked him into Edmond municipal jail, the report states. He was later released on $657 bail, police spokeswoman Jennifer Monroe said.
Wednesday’s arrest marks Blackmon’s third documented run-in with the law in the past four years.
Blackmon was arrested in October 2010 on a misdemeanor driving under the influence complaint in Carrollton, Texas, as he returned to Stillwater after a Monday night Dallas Cowboys game. Police radar determined Blackmon was going 92 mph in a 60 mph zone. Blackmon was suspended one game from the OSU football team.
