.08 is generally considered a high enough blood alcohol content to get you pulled over and charged with a DUI. New Jaguars wide receiver Justin Blackmon learned this the hard way (for the second time) on Sunday when he was arrested and charged with a DUI in Oklahoma.
The Oklahoma State star is entering his rookie year with a team that praises and tries to promote high character and moral values. You have to wonder what was going through Blackmon’s head as he decided to drive.
What’s even worse? He blew a .24!
That’s three times the legal limit and .09 (enough for one person to be drunk) above the “aggravated DUI” limit of .15 for which he was charged in Oklahoma.
Right now, disbelief sets in a little bit more than worry over a potential face of the franchise. I can’t imagine what possesses a person that drunk to put the keys in his car and go for a ride. As good as Taco Bell is after a number of drinks, it just isn’t worth swerving all over the road for.
