Moments before blowing triple the legal blood alcohol limit, Jaguars rookie wide receiver Justin Blackmon told Oklahoma police officers: “I’m literally not a drinker.”
FirstCoastNews.com obtained the booking video after Blackmon’s arrest on aggravated DUI charges in Stillwater, Oklahoma. He blew a 0.24 and a 0.26, more than three times the legal limit of 0.08.
When a jailer asked: “When’s the last time you drank heavily?,” Blackmon replied: “Well, I mean, I drank tonight. But this is the first time I’ve been here in Stillwater.”
Since his arrest, Blackmon has apologized, and teammates were quick to tell him to “grow up.”
It’s good advice, and the concern the Jaguars showed is reasonable, considering their track record with first-round wide receivers.
