Justin Blackmon was arrested on Sunday in Stillwater, Oklahoma around 3 a.m. after police officers suspected him of driving under the influence. The former football player for the Oklahoma State University Cowboys was pulled over, and eventually arrested for driving under the influence after he failed the sobriety test.
This is the second time that Blackmon has been arrested for driving under the influence. He was previously arrested back in 2010, and charged with a DUI in Texas. The wide receiver, who was drafted by the Jacksonville Jaguars but has yet to be signed, will now face an aggravated DUI charge.
A DUI charge can turn into an aggravated DUI charge depending on how intoxicated an individual is at the time of the arrest. Blackmon gave a blood sample after he was arrested, and his blood alcohol content was recorded at 0.24. The legal limit is 0.08, and therefore Blackmon's DUI charge was changed to an aggravated DUI charge.
