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.”
