EDMOND -

Former Oklahoma State University football player and current NFL player Justin Blackmon is back in the spotlight. Edmond Police arrested him Wednesday night for possession of marijuana following a routine traffic stop.

Police released dash cam video which they say shows Blackmon making an illegal left turn. They told FOX25 Blackmon crossed over double yellow lines and into the lanes of on-coming traffic in order to maneuver his way around stalled cars and get into the left turning lane.

Edmond Police Public Information Officer Jenny Monroe said the arresting officer didn’t recognize Blackmon.

“Honestly our officer didn't even recognize him,” Monroe said. “[He] didn't even know who he was at the time of the arrest. Mr. Blackmon said to him ‘this is going to be a big deal.’"

Police told FOX25 Blackmon admitted to smoking pot. They said a search into the car turned up two blunts which is about 3 grams of marijuana.

"He was honest,” Monroe said. “He was cooperative through the entire incident."

This is Blackmon's third arrest. FOX25 reported on his first arrest back in October 2010 while he was still at OSU and a second in June 2012 as a rookie with the Jacksonville Jaguars. Both arrests were for driving under the influence.

The NFL suspended him indefinitely after the second arrest but he’s still on the Jacksonville Jaguars roster. Jaguars owner, Shad Khan made it clear that they won't cut ties with Blackmon.”

"I think it's important for him to get the help. I think that's the most important thing," Khan said.

But Coach Gus Bradley said Blackmon’s latest arrest "creates more conversation about possibly parting ways.”

Blackmon posted a $675 bail.
