Oklahoma Heisman Trophy QB candidate Baker Mayfield arrested in Arkansas
Oklahoma QB Baker Mayfield was in Fayetteville, Arkansas on Friday night, and it appears he may have had a little bit too good of a time.
The Sooners quarterback and Heisman Trophy candidate was arrested by the Fayetteville Police Department for public intoxication, disorderly conduct, fleeing and resisting arrest.
Mayfield threw for 3,965 yards and 40 touchdowns last year as Oklahoma’s starting quarterback.
The Sooners open the 2017 season against UTEP. In Week 2, Oklahoma travels to Ohio State in a marquee matchup.
Update: OU has released a statement on the matter.
“We are aware of the matter and are learning the details. We don’t have any other information at this time.”
