Justin Blackmon

Jacksonville Jaguars first-round draft pick receiver Justin Blackmon is expected to appear in front of a judge today after he was arrested and charged with an aggravated DUI this weekend in Oklahoma, his second such charge in two years.

A Stillwater police officer tried to pull Blackmon over for driving 60 mph in a 35 mph zone as well as driving left of center, according to CBS. Blackmon drove around for blocks before stopping in a gas station parking lot, where he admitted to officers that he had been drinking.

Blackmon then agreed to take a Breathalyzer test and blew a .24, which is three times the legal limit of .08, and under Oklahoma law grounds to be charged with an aggravated DUI. He was released from jail on $1,000 bond.

This is the second time Blackmon has been arrested for driving under the influence in the past two years. Blackmon was previously charged with a misdemeanor DUI after being caught speeding on a suburban Dallas highway.

The Jacksonville Jaguars said the team is aware of the report.
