Jaguars First-Round Pick Justin Blackmon Arrested on Drunken Driving Charge

Jaguars First-Round Pick Justin Blackmon Arrested on Drunken Driving ChargeFootball players just can't stay out of trouble.

One week after Lions defensive tackle Nick Fairley was charged with driving under the influence, another young star got tackled with the same problem.

Jaguars first-round pick Justin Blackmon was arrested early Sunday morning in Stillwater, Okla., on an aggravated DUI charge.

Stillwater police spokesman Capt. Randy Dickerson told ESPN.com that the standout receiver at Oklahoma State had three times the legal limit of alcohol in his body.

Blackmon was selected with the fifth overall pick in April's draft with hopes that he could bring something to an offense that was the worst in the league last season.

The receiver was released Sunday afternoon on $1,000 bail. A Monday arraignment is scheduled for 2:30 p.m. ET.
