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.
