    Jacksonville Jaguars rookie wide receiver Justin Blackmon pleaded not guilty to a misdemeanor aggravated DUI charge in Stillwater, Okla., Vito Stellino of the Florida Times-Union reported Monday. A hearing has been set for 10:30am CT on July 24, three days before the Jaguars are set to begin training camp, Blackmon faces up to one year in jail and a $1,000 fine, but Stellino reported that it's unlikely that Blackmon will serve time in jail. Blackmon, 22, was officially charged with one count of aggravated DUI on Monday morning following his arrest early Sunday in Stillwater, where he played college football for Oklahoma State. To qualify for an aggravated DUI, an individual's blood-alcohol level must be above .15, Blackmon was booked into Payne County Jail on Sunday morning after admitting to consuming alcohol and registering a blood-alcohol level of .24, which is three times the legal limit of .08, a second test sample registered a .26. During his career at Oklahoma State, Blackmon was suspended for one game during the 2010 season after being arrested on a DUI complaint in Carrollton, Texas, though Blackmon has yet to sign an NFL contract, he is subject to discipline under the NFL's substance abuse and personal conduct policies.

    Well it did work for Allen. But he is a tad smarter.
