After a third arrest involving either alcohol or marijuana, it's now time for the Jacksonville Jaguars to cut ties with troubled wide receiver Justin Blackmon, Michael DiRocco writes. Story
Several Oklahoma television stations, including KWTV News 9 in Oklahoma City, reported that Edmond Police Department officers who stopped Blackmon for a traffic violation could smell the odor of marijuana coming from his car. Police searched the car and found marijuana and took Blackmon into custody.
He has posted bail and has been released from custody.
Blackmon is currently serving an indefinite suspension after his third violation of the NFL's substance abuse policy. He was suspended for the first four games of the 2013 season because of his second violation, which occurred sometime in the offseason after the 2012 season in which he caught 64 passes for 865 yards and five touchdowns.
Speaking to reporters Thursday afternoon, Jaguars owner Shad Khan said he sees no reason for his team to cut ties with Blackmon.
"We want him to get help he needs," Khan said.
This is Blackmon's third arrest and second in Oklahoma. He was arrested in Texas in 2010 on a misdemeanor DUI charge (later reduced to underage alcohol possession) after police officers caught him speeding outside of Dallas. He was arrested again in June 2012 during a traffic stop in Stillwater, Oklahoma, after a breath test allegedly showed his blood alcohol content to be three times the legal limit.
