Oklahoma QB Baker Mayfield Arrested In Arkansas On Four Charges

Baker Mayfield's mugshot after he was arrested on four charges.

Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield has been arrested in Fayetteville, Arkansas.

According to the Washington Country Sheriff's Office, Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield was arrested early Saturday morning. Mayfield, who was booked at 8:21 AM, is being charged with four crimes - public intoxication, disorderly conduct, fleeing and resisting arrest. It's unclear what led to the incident.

Here's Mayfield's mugshot. He was arrested at 2:56 AM. At the moment, it looks like he's still being held in jail.

Mayfield, who led the Sooners to a 12-2 record, a Big 12 title and a Sugar Bowl win in 2016, has one year of eligibility remaining with Oklahoma. Mayfield is considered to be one of the Heisman Trophy favorites heading into the 2017 campaign. Oklahoma kicks its 2017 campaign off with UTEP at home, but then travels to Ohio State in week two to take on the Buckeyes. Head coach Bob Stoops will have an interesting decision to make in the aftermath here. Oklahoma has reportedly been made aware of the arrest. The school declined to comment.

We'll update this post as more information becomes available.
