Justin Blackmon Arrest: Team Official Says Wide Receiver Must 'Fess Up'

Justin Blackmon's DUI arrest has to do with ... Justin Blackmon, according to one Jacksonville Jaguars official. On Sunday, the rookie wide receiver was arrested on an aggravated DUI charge after he was pulled by police at 3 a.m. and subsequently registered a .24 on a breathalyzer test, which is about three times the legal limit.

"It has nothing to do with anyone but [Blackmon]," the official told The Sports Xchange on Monday. "We'll deal with him on this incident ... not any ghosts of the past. It's (look in the) mirror time. He's going to have to 'fess up,' take ownership of the situation, and lay out a course for dealing with this thing head-on."

A press conference, along with Jaguars GM Gene Smith and head coach Mike Mularkey will be held tomorrow at 1:15 p.m. EST to discuss Blackmon's off-the-field incident., according to Associated Press reporter Mark Long. Blackmon will also be present
