STILLWATER, Okla. -

One day after Jacksonville Jaguars first-round draft pick Justin Blackmon was arrested on suspicion of drunken driving, he appears in an Oklahoma courtroom and pleads not guilty.

Stillwater police Sgt. Jeff Dillon says Blackmon's white Chevy Tahoe was pulled over just after 3 a.m. for speeding (60 mph in a 35 mph zone).  He agreed to take a breathalyzer test and blew a .24, three times the legal limit.

The police report says Blackmon told the officer, "I just flew in, I don't know why you're harassing me."

Blackmon admitted consuming alcohol before driving and was then placed under arrest for driving under the influence and taken to the Stillwater City Jail. There were no other passengers in the vehicle.

Blackmon left the courtroom surrounded by friends. His attorney, Cheryl Ramsey, declined to comment.

The Jaguars selected Blackmon fifth overall in April's draft. A team spokesman said Sunday that the Jaguars are trying to learn more about the arrest and had no comment.

Blackmon has not yet signed a contract with the Jaguars and some pundits believe Jacksonville will be looking for a sizable discount after his arrest.
