Jaguars GM Gene Smith, first round draft pick Justin Blackmon, owner Shahid Khan and head coach Mike Mularkey introduce Blackmon to the Jacksonville media on Friday
STILLWATER, Okla. -- Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Justin Blackmon has pleaded not guilty to a misdemeanor charge of aggravated driving under the influence in Oklahoma, according to NBC's ProFootballTalk.com.
His court date will be July 24 at 10:30 a.m., according to ProFootballTalk.com. That is three days before Jaguars training camp is scheduled to begin.
Since it is a misdemeanor charge, it is unlikely Blackmon will face any jail time, ProFootballTalk.com reports.
Blackmon, 22, was arrested after 3 a.m. Sunday and booked into the Payne County jail shortly after 10 a.m. Sunday according to NFL.com, which cited a Payne County jail spokeswoman as confirming the arrest.
Blackmon was released late Sunday after posting bond.
Oklahoma law says aggravated DUI applies to drivers with a .15 or higher blood alcohol level.

First Coast News checked with the Carrollton Police Department in Texas about a reported first DUI offense Blackmon was charged with in 2010. John Stovall with the Carrollton Police Department said when Blackmon was stopped for speeding, the officer detected alcohol.
If you are under 21 in the state of Texas, you cannot have any alcohol on your breath at all so you are charged with a DUI. In the state of Texas, Stovall said, you are charged with driving while intoxicated if you are over the blood-alcohol limit. Since Blackmon never had a breathalyzer administered, he was charged with DUI and not DWI.
Blackmon's 2010 DUI charge was a misdemeanor. Stovall said there was no probable cause to believe he was intoxicated, so Blackmon was not given a breathalyzer.
He was issued a citation and paid a $375 fine.
Blackmon's arrest comes just days after the completion of OTAs in Jacksonville.
