Justin Blackmon has not even played a game in the NFL yet, but he's already making headlines for all the wrong reasons -- he was arrested this morning for aggravated DUI ... TMZ has learned.

Blackmon, who played his college ball at Oklahoma State, was arrested in nearby Stillwater by the Payne County Sheriff and booked into jail around 10:22 AM. A spokeswoman for Payne County Jail tells TMZ the charge was aggravated DUI and Blackmon will remain in custody until he sees a judge tomorrow.

According to Oklahoma law, aggravated DUI applies to drivers with a .15 or higher blood alcohol level.

This would not be Blackmon's first DUI arrest. He was arrested in Texas in 2010 and suspended one game by his coach.

Blackmon was the number 5 pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, which took place on April 26.

you shouldn't be a flava clown this early before you put on NFL pads and run a route in a real game.
on a side note, WTF is it with Jags WR's ****ing up? Williams and Jones were cocaine addicts, seems like there was another one who did something dumb as well and now this...

that's a lie, i don't drink at all so i know i wouldn't even with Gabbert as the QB.
that said, Gabbert is overrated based upon where he was drafted but they gave him complete crap at WR. your best WR is your TE and then no one else is even a NFL quality guy.

A couple of things. .15 is certainly intoxicated, but not blackedout where the **** am I type status. Most states establish twice the legal limit of .08 as being aggravated DWI. Or it is considered aggravated if you crash or hit somebody. .08 even for a big guy like Blackmon could be as little as two big beers in an hour. Not to defend the guy, but a .15 could be blown for 4 or 5 strong drinks consumed in a couple of hours. It doesn't necessary mean he was lining up the shots one after another.

Secondly, there is no way he is going to "do time." Donte Stallworth got 30 days and probation for DUI manslaughter.

There is no reason to drink and drive. Ever. He was twice the legal limit. I have friends who aren't willing to walk to their houses and they live 10 blocks from the bars, but think it is cool and safe to get in their vehicles and make the trip home. They are stupid. Anyone who drinks and drives is stupid.

No doubt it's dumb. Especially when most teams provide an on call limo service to pick up drunk athletes. At least I know Bowlen does that.

My point being is that people perpetuate the stereotype that because someone has 5 or 6 drinks in them that they are stumbling, bumbling, can't find the car, drive the wrong way on the Interstate drunk. That simply isn't accurate. Driving drunk is dangerous, stupid, and unnecessary, but it's something that I would be willing to bet that 50 percent of the driving public under the age of 30 has done at some point. I'm not going to judge the kid for same doing the same dumb thing that I was guilty of doing a few times when I was 21 or 22. I'm sure he'll pay a fine, do some community service etc.
Food for thought, using a cellphone and driving is the equivalent in terms of diminished reaction times as blowing a .08 BAC. 8 percent of all drivers are on their phones at any given time. And that the study is old. I'm sure the numbers have gone way up as smart phones have gotten more advanced.

Blackmon agreed to take a breathalyzer test and blew a .24 - three times the legal limit of .08, Dickerson said.

OK, he's a total jackass. A .24 is stumbling, bumbling, drive the wrong way on the Interstate drunk. That's like incoherent drunk.

Requiem

Any type of distracted driving is stupid.

Nobody is perpetuating any stereotypes here. If you have 5-6 drinks (depending on the person) within an hour or two, you could be anywhere from tipsy to absolutely plowed depending on what you drank, how you handle alcohol and what your weight is. If I had that many drinks in two hours, my BAC would be ~ .114 -- No reason to get behind the wheel and drive. And when people are out drinking, it usually just isn't a beer or two. If I had three beers in one hour, I would be over the legal limit.

That is the equivalent to ~ 15 drinks or more in a few hour time span. Flat out ridiculous.

How do you get 10? He had a BAC of .24. Ten drinks at 200 pounds would be .19, and that does not take into account the loss of alcohol processed over time.

Let's say he was out drinking for 3 hours. He'll lose .05 or .06 over that time. According to the linear progression of the chart, 15 drinks would be a .29. Subtracting the alcohol processed would bring us down to the .24.

One approximation, using that chart, would be 15 drinks over a 3 hour span. Nice!

Different people handle alcohol differently. For me, there is actually a pretty fine line between just buzzed and throwing up. The key is getting as close to that line as you can.

Please explain why this would have any relevance to Blackmon's DUI? If I got a DUI, i would be an idiot. Last time I drank too much, I got out of the bar, realized I couldn't drive, tossed the keys in the trunk and went to sleep in the parking lot for 3 hours. These guys are rich enough to have a cab or hopefully smart enough (even drunk) to sleep it off in the car.

Technically 3am is day time, but I would imagine even now still pretty dark at 3am.

He's an idiot. Idiot jock is idiot. Not shocking. Lots of football players at my university drove drunk and stupid and got themselves in all kinds of stupid. hell regular college guys I know used to drive drunk occasionally. It does not make it okay, it simply is what being drunk mixed with hubris does. I kind of wonder if there is not a way that bars cannot make people check their keys at the door or something. Doubtful, but I wonder. Wouldn't help with the people going to parties or drinking on their own though.

People were getting on my case for choosing Claiborne over Blackmon at #4 in the mock draft. This was my answer at the time:

Blackmon has one year as a starter and was busted for a DUI last year. I was very impressed with his game against Stanford but I wouldn't gamble a #4 pick on him. He's got a volatile personality. I wonder if that won't lead to trouble when he has a million bucks in the bank? My second pick would have been Reiff, but there are some questions about him too. I still think Blackmon is a first round pick, but Claiborne is the safer pick that high in the draft, IMO.

This is definitely true. With my kidney issues (and it makes sense, since they process everything) -- a few beers does me in. That is why I barely drink anymore and have had maybe 10-12 drinks in the past 6 weeks, with a few of them being at the 2012 South Dakota BBQ Championships. I had two beers and a margarita and I was drunk. Granted, the margarita was huge. And I walked home. :)
