EDMOND, Okla. (AP) - Suspended Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Justin Blackmon has been arrested in Oklahoma on a complaint of marijuana possession.

Blackmon, a former standout at Oklahoma State, was arrested Wednesday evening in the Oklahoma City suburb of Edmond. Police say they noticed his sedan go around stopped traffic in an attempt to get into a turn lane.

Police spokeswoman Jenny Monroe says an officer detected a "heavy smell of marijuana" coming from the car, and that Blackmon admitted he had smoked "a blunt" while driving and had another in his vehicle.

Blackmon was arrested and booked into the Edmond jail, where he posted $657 bond.

Blackmon is suspended without pay indefinitely for repeated violations of the NFL's substance-abuse policy. The Jaguars have indicated they may cut him if he is reinstated.
