Sorry, I’m not buying that he was sober and if I was the Jags or another NFL franchise, there’s no way I’d want this knucklehead on my team.
I’ll assume that Mr. Blackmon has a late model SUV, a random tire blow out seems pretty unlikely. Being out at 4 AM makes this seem even more suspicious. He wasn’t going to his job stocking shelves at the local Publix.
I’m not sure if he got preferential treatment because he was an athlete or else the responding officers didn’t want to deal with the hassle of booking an NFL athlete, dealing with the media as well as higher ups back at the station, and probably just wanted to end their shift and go home for the night.
