Justin Blackmon was arrested just after 3 a.m. Sunday. He posted $1,000 bail around 12:45 Sunday afternoon and left the Payne County jail.

Fans are disappointed in the football star.

Reaction pours in after the news of former OSU football sensation Justin Blackmon was arrested for drunk driving.

"He should be more cautious about what he does. He's a good role model," OSU fan Blake Lemmons said.

Just after 3 a.m. Sunday, Stillwater police pulled over a white Chevy Tahoe going 60 in a 35 mile an hour zone.

Police say Blackmon was driving and crossed the center line. Investigators say his blood alcohol content was three times the legal limit bumping the charge up to an aggravated DUI.

"Justin Blackmon is supposed to be a role model, and a leader. And his actions are leaving something to be desired that people look up to him. But if he's doing this kind of things, then kids are gonna think it's okay to do that, and nothing bad is gonna happen," said Shawn Gilland, OSU fan.

This isn't Blackmon's first run-in with drunk driving. He was arrested in Texas for a DUI in 2010. After that arrest, Blackmon took responsibility and said, "I'm embarrassed to be in this position. I look forward to redeeming myself and proving to everybody that this isn't who I am. I'm not this guy. I'm humbled by this experience and I will grow from it."

But he didn't, and a second DUI landed him back in the hot seat with some of his fans.

"I look up to him because he's been successful with what he does. So him doing that kind of thing makes me lose respect for him," Lemmons said.

The Jacksonville Jaguars have been quiet since the arrest. Blackmon has reportedly been working out a deal with the deal possibly worth upwards of $20 million.

Blackmon is due back in court on Monday.
