Justin Blackmon

Pleads Not Guilty to DUI

Former Oklahoma State badass Justin Blackmon insists ... he didn't drive like a drunk lunatic last weekend -- pleading "not guilty" in court yesterday to DUI.

According to the arrest report, Justin was pulled over early Sunday morning in Stillwater, OK for driving 60mph in a 35, and swerving into oncoming traffic. When the officer approached the vehicle, he detected the odor of alcohol.

According to the officer, Justin had red watery eyes and admitted to drinking before getting into the car.

The officer administered a field sobriety test and, after an abysmal performance, Justin was placed under arrest for DUI. When he got back to the police station, Blackmon blew a .24 (three times the legal limit).

Interesting -- Blackmon was recently drafted by the Jacksonville Jaguars, but still hasn't signed with the team. It's unclear how the arrest will affect negotiations, but there are reports the Jags will low ball him now.

Blackmon is currently free on $1,000 bond. His next court date's July 24th.

He blew a .24? That's outright drunk. WTF does he think he's pleading "not guilty" too?

I wish prosecutors would stop cutting these a-holes deals! They have him dead to rights and he pleads not guilty. Hopefully, the judge will ignore any deal they negotiate and give him the max. Time to act like a responsible adult, a-hole, especially when your employer is about to make you rich!

just ANOTHER DRUNK. non alcoholics cannot function with a .24 BAC. It takes a long term HEAVY drinking career to have this kind of resistance.

Selfish, over-indulgent jackass. If the Jaguars go through with drafting him, SHAME ON THEM. He should lose his deal, and sit around thinking about what someone else could have lost had he hit and killed anyone.

tmz obviously has no football fans, the new CBA for rookies is set, they can't lowball him. contracts are set, and he's already been drafted to the guy saying they shouldn't draft him.

Also, he will be just fine.
