Dash cam of Baker Mayfield getting tackled by police has emerged


Baker Mayfield

Last month Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield was arrested in Fayetteville, Arkansas for what police say was public intoxication, resisting arrest, and disorderly conduct. To confirm all of that, the Fayetteville Police Department released the following video that shows Mayfield getting talked to by police and trying to sprint away before one cop broke out with a nice open field tackle.

Shit… Via the Oklahoman:

But he ‘didn’t do anything’.

Well, he’ll have something to do on April 7th because that’s when he’s scheduled to appear in court.

Prior to the video’s release we had the police account of what happened thanks to Dylan Buckingham:

“I asked Mayfield to stop and talk to me. Mayfield stated he was trying to break up an altercation that had occurred prior to my arrival. I asked Mayficld to stay so I could take his statement for my report. While talking to the other party involved. Mayfield was yelling profanities and was causing a scene. Mayfield was intoxicated. When he first came over to me. he had difficulty walking down a couple stairs. Mayfield‘s speech was slurred and he had the odor of intoxicants coming from his person. The front of Mayfield’s clothing was covered in food. I told Mayfield to come over to me. When l gave that command. Mayfield began to walk away from me. I repeatedly told him to stop. Mayfield then began to sprint away. I chased alter him. Mayfield was tackled to the ground. While on the ground. I gave repeated orders for him to place his arms behind his back. May field kept his arms locked tight and would not allow me to place his arms behind his back. I eventually forced Mayfield’s ann behind his back. I then placed him in handcuffs.”
