The Jacksonville Jaguars received some bad news early Sunday morning, as it was revealed that top draft pick Justin Blackmon was arrested and charged with aggravated DUI outside of Stillwater, Oklahoma early Sunday morning.

Kelly Hines of the Tulsa World first reported the incident shortly after 10 a.m. when Blackmon was booked into the Payne County Jail. Aggravated DUI, according to Oklahoma law requires the blood-alcohol level of the driver to be at least .15.

This is not the first time that Blackmon has found himself in trouble for drinking and driving, as he was arrested in 2010 while driving under the influence after returning home from a Dallas Cowboys game.

Blackmon has yet to sign with the Jaguars, and is expecting to sign somewhere in the ballpark of $20 million. It will be interesting to see if this pattern of behavior will affect the negotiations.
