Justin Blackmon DUI: Jaguars WR Blew A .24 BAC On Breathalyzer

Justin Blackmon had three times the legal limit of alcohol in his system when he was arrested early Sunday morning on an aggravated DUI charge. The Jaguars wide receiver agreed to take a breathalyzer test and blew a .24. The legal limit is .08.

Blackmon was reportedly pulled over for driving 60 miles per hour in a 35 mile per hour zone, and driving left of the center line.

So, what does a .24 mean? Well, it means that Blackmon was very, very drunk. Just ask Wikipedia:

BAC (% by vol.)
.0.20–0.29
Behavior
* Stupor
* Loss of understanding
* Impaired sensations
Impairment
* Severe motor impairment
* Loss of consciousness
* Memory blackout

This is, quite obviously, no condition to be anywhere near a car. In fact, .27 is considered "death possible" on the BAC card at Be Responsible About Drinking's site, brad21.org.

"He was unsteady on his feet, his speech was slurred, and his eyes were glassy and blood shot,'' Stillwater police spokesman Capt. Randy Dickerson said in a statement. "He admitted to consuming alcohol prior to driving.''

Two weeks ago Amy K. Nelson sat down with Blackmon at the NFLPA Rookie Premiere event in Los Angeles. They spoke about what it meant to Blackmon to be drafted by Jacksonville, what he was doing to keep busy and what he anticipated in the transition from college to the pros.
