Oklahoma QB Baker Mayfield faces four charges, including resisting arrest

University of Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield was arrested in Fayetteville early Saturday morning.

Mayfield's arrest report says a man got a police officer's attention at 2:29 a.m. and was looking to file an assault and battery report. While speaking with Mayfield, the Oklahoma quarterback was said to be "yelling profanities and was causing a scene", the report states.

Mayfield's bond was set at $1,500.

Mayfield kept his arms locked in a tight position and would not comply with the officer's orders to put his arms behind his back before the officer handcuffed him, according to the report.

Mayfield was arrested for public intoxication, disorderly conduct, and fleeing and resisting arrest. When the officer called Mayfield over, he began to walk away instead.

After being told to stop walking away from the cops, Mayfield started sprinting away.

He was named a Heisman Trophy finalist last season as he led Oklahoma to its second consecutive Big 12 title. He faces an April 7 court date for the public intoxication charge, according to the sheriff's office. "We don't have any other information at this time".

Mayfield has finished two straight seasons in the top five of the Heisman voting. He threw for 3,965 yards and 40 passing touchdowns while chipping in 177 rushing yards and six more touchdowns on the ground.
