Baker Mayfield arrested for public intoxication, resisting arrest
Feb 26 2017
Mayfield was booked Saturday morning and faces four listed charges: public intoxication, disorderly conduct, fleeing, and resisting arrest.
According to the Fayetteville District Court report, Mayfield stated he was trying to break up an altercation and the police officer asked him to stay so he could take a statement for his report.
A spokesman for the university said the school was "aware of the matter and are learning the details".
According to the incident report, a Fayetteville officer was flagged down near the intersection of West and Dickson at 2:29 a.m.
Set to be a redshirt senior, Mayfield is returning to Oklahoma for a third season in 2017, after leading the Sooners to a Sugar Bowl victory over the Auburn Tigers. The officer then chased after the Sooner quarterback and did what many defenders have been unsuccessful doing on the football field, running Mayfield down and tackling him.
The officer's report states that Mayfield smelled of alcohol, and was slurring his speech - and when the cop asked Mayfield to walk back over to him, Mayfield began to sprint away. Mayfield had slurred speech, food on his shirt and had a hard time walking down stairs, the report stated.
Mayfield is an early favorite to win the Heisman Trophy next season. "We don't have any other information at this time".
