Early Heisman Favorite Baker Mayfield Arrested With Multiple Charges

Oklahoma Sooners quarterback Baker Mayfield was arrested and charged with public intoxication, disorderly conduct, resisting arrest and fleeing early Saturday morning in Arkansas, according to the Washington County (Arkansas) sheriff's office.

Per ESPN.com:

"According to the preliminary police report obtained by ESPN.com, a police officer was flagged down to take an assault and battery report at about 2:29 a.m. Saturday. The person who flagged the officer was yelling at Mayfield, who told the officer he had been trying to break up an altercation. The officer asked Mayfield to stay so that he could take his statement, at which point Mayfield began "yelling profanities and causing a scene," according to the report.

The report stated Mayfield had slurred speech, had difficulty walking down stairs and was covered in food on the front of his clothing. According to the report, when the officer asked Mayfield to come over, he began to walk away. When the officer told him to stop, Mayfield sprinted away, which forced the officer to chase him and tackle him to the ground.

Mayfield was uncooperative with the police officer, who was forced to place him in handcuffs and bring him in. 

Mayfield has finished  in the top five of the Heisman voting two straight seasons.
