Video from the night of Justin Blackmon‘s DUI arrest earlier this month has been released thanks to First Coast News in Jacksonville. And — surprise, surprise — the Jaguars rookie wideout appears totally trashed, mightily slurring his words, stumbling around, and struggling to take off his jewelry. What else was there to expect after he reportedly had a blood-alcohol content of .24 — three times the legal limit?
The footage shows Blackmon — notably wearing a No. 8 Kobe Bryant jersey — being questioned in a Stillwater (Okla.) police station. Here’s an example of the completely nonsensical type of conversation that can only come from somebody being drunk off their you-know-what:
“Married, single or divorced?” the jailer asks.
“Um, neither. I mean I’m single,” Blackmon says.
The jailer asks, “Are you employed?”
“No,” Blackmon says. [Ed. note: Blackmon had already been drafted by the Jags.]
When he was informed he would be charged with aggravated DUI, a bewildered Blackmon responds, “How?”
Kids, let this be a lesson: Don’t drink and drive. Because (among other reasons) it is embarrassing as hell.
