Oklahoma Announces Punishment For Baker Mayfield

Here's what kind of punishment the Oklahoma quarterback will have to fulfill.

Oklahoma has announced its punishment for Baker Mayfield as a result of his offseason arrest.

The Sooners' senior quarterback was arrested on four charges in Arkansas in February, including public intoxication, disorderly conduct and resisting arrest.

Some of the details from the police report, obtained by ESPN:

"According to the preliminary police report obtained by ESPN.com, a police officer was flagged down to take an assault and battery report 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."

Mayfield, a Heisman Trophy frontrunner, will have to undergo alcohol classes and 35 hours of community service.

The OU QB will not miss any games.

Oklahoma has a mammoth Week 2 showdown against Ohio State in Columbus.

Oklahoma opens its season on Saturday, Sept. 2 against UTEP.
