Jacksonville, FL (Sports Network) - Jacksonville Jaguars rookie wide receiver
Justin Blackmon apologized on Wednesday for his actions over the weekend.
The former Oklahoma State wide receiver was arrested early Sunday morning in
Stillwater after blowing a .24 and .26 on a breathalyzer test, three times the
legal limit in Oklahoma.
Blackmon pleaded not guilty to a misdemeanor aggravated DUI charge on Monday.
The fifth overall pick in April's NFL Draft, Blackmon addressed the media at a
Wednesday afternoon press conference. Head coach Mike Mularkey and general
manager Gene Smith accompanied Blackmon.
"First off I want to apologize to Gene and Mr. (Shahid) Khan and coach
Mularkey," Blackmon said. "The whole organization, teammates, everyone that my
poor judgment brought bad press to. I want to apologize to fans or people that
looked up to me. What I did, the decision I made over the weekend, that might
be questioning who I am. I just want to apologize for that and let people know
that's not who I am, that's not who I'm going to be."
It was Blackmon's second run-in with the law after he was arrested in October
of 2010 on a DUI complaint while returning home from a Dallas Cowboys game.
Blackmon said he does not have a drinking problem.
The 22-year-old still has not signed a contract with the Jags.
