O-State’s Blackmon suspended for game
Thursday, October 28, 2010
STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) — Oklahoma State coach Mike Gundy said he’s suspended star wide receiver Justin Blackmon for one game after Blackmon’s arrest on a misdemeanor DUI charge.
Gundy announced the suspension Wednesday after the Cowboys’ practice. No. 20 Oklahoma State will play Saturday at Kansas State.
Blackmon was arrested at 3:45 a.m. Tuesday on an interstate in Carrollton, Texas, after police used radar to determine he was driving 92 mph in a 60 mph zone.
An officer performed a field sobriety test on the 20-year-old Blackmon.
Under Texas law, drivers under 21 can be arrested for having any detectable amount of alcohol in his or her system and Blackmon fell into that category.
