Justin Blackmon, the Jaguars' No. 5 overall pick from 2012, is indefinitely suspended after numerous violations of the NFL's drug policy, and he's been keeping a low profile during his time away from the team.

His name has made news again, though. Oklahoma's News 6 reported that he was arrested Wednesday night for marijuana possession.

According to Edmond, Oklahoma police, Blackmon was pulled over for a traffic violation. Officers said they smelled marijuana emanating from inside the car, and after a search, police allegedly found the drugs.

Here's the mugshot.

According to the Florida Times Union, Blackmon has posted bond and is out of jail.

"It's unfortunate news," Jaguars coach Gus Bradley said, via the AP. "We haven't had much contact with him. I'm just praying that he gets the help he needs. I'm just praying that he gets right."
