Jacksonville Jaguars first-round draft pick Justin Blackmon has appeared in an Oklahoma courtroom for the first time since his weekend arrest for suspicion of drunken
driving.

The former Oklahoma State star wide receiver did not enter a
plea Monday to a misdemeanor count of driving under the influence.
Blackmon's was allowed to remain free on $1,000 bond.

Police arrested Blackmon during a traffic stop in Stillwater
early Sunday after a breath test allegedly showed his blood alcohol
content to be three times the legal limit.

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.
