STILLWATER — Former Oklahoma State star wide receiver Justin Blackmon entered a plea of not guilty on an aggravated DUI charge at the Payne County Courthouse Monday afternoon.
Blackmon, who was selected fifth overall by the Jacksonville Jaguars in April’s NFL Draft, will next appear in court on July 24 at 10:30 a.m. The Jaguars begin training camp on July 27.
Blackmon was arrested in Stillwater early Sunday morning after he was stopped in a while Chevy Tahoe going 60 miles per hour in a 35 mph zone around 3 a.m., according to the police report. He was driving left of center and failed to yield for four blocks, until pulling into a gas station near Perkins and McElroy Road.
Blackmon was observed to have alcohol on his breath and admitted to consuming alcohol before driving, the police report said. He also had slurred speech and was unsteady on his feet.
Blackmon was then arrested and taken to Stillwater City jail. There he blew a .24 on a breathalyzer test, which is well above the legal limit. An aggravated DUI in Oklahoma is when the driver has a blood alcohol content above .15.
Blackmon posted $1,000 bond and was released Sunday afternoon.
This is the second alcohol-related incident for Blackmon. He was arrested in 2010 on a misdemeanor DUI complaint in Carrolton, Texas while returning to Oklahoma from a Dallas Cowboys game. Radar indicated he was driving 92 miles per hour in a 60 mph zone.
Blackmon was suspended for one game for that arrest.
Blackmon recently completed one of the greatest careers in OSU history, capturing back-to-back Biletnikoff awards in 2010 and 2011 after amassing 232 catches, 3,304 yards and 38 touchdowns over those two seasons. He has been participating in the Jaguars' offseason program but has not yet signed a contract.
