Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Justin Blackmon was arrested on a complaint of aggravated DUI early Sunday morning in Stillwater, Okla., a Payne County Jail spokeswoman confirmed to NFL.com.
Blackmon, 22, was booked into Payne County Jail at 10:22 a.m. CT on Sunday. Oklahoma law says aggravated DUI applies to drivers with a .15 or higher blood alcohol level.
For Blackmon, this is the second time he has been arrested on a DUI complaint. In October of 2010, Blackmon was arrested in Carrollton, Texas after attending a Dallas Cowboys game on Monday Night Football. Blackmon did not have permission to attend the game and was suspended for one game by Oklahoma State head coach Mike Gundy.

Justin Blackmon, drafted by the Jags as a franchise wideout in April, was arrested Sunday morning in Stillwater, Okla., on a charge of aggravated DUI. That's reserved for those who measure above .15 percent blood alcohol, which essentially is twice the legal limit in Oklahoma (.08 percent alcohol).
Blackmon's breathalyzer test measured at .24, and according to the Tulsa World, he had a previous DUI arrest in 2010. Driving under the influence of three times the legal limit, and with a prior incident, will certainly put Blackmon in the NFL's substance abuse program, and rightfully so. Talk about questioning the intelligence of a player in which you've placed so much hope for your franchise.
