03/21/17 - Baker Mayfield will practice this spring as Oklahoma assesses the fallout from the star quarterback's arrest in Arkansas last month, coach Bob Stoops said Monday. Speaking at a news conference the day before the Sooners were scheduled to begin spring practice, Stoops said any internal discipline for Mayfield won't be determined until the situation is "complete, every part of it." Police in Fayetteville arrested the 2016 Heisman Trophy finalist in the early hours of Feb. 25. They said Mayfield first walked, than tried to run away before being tackled by an officer following an altercation. Mayfield was charged with disorderly conduct, public intoxication and resisting arrest. "Very disappointed that Baker put himself in that situation," Stoops said in his first public comments about Mayfield's arrest. "As you know, it's still ongoing to we won't determine anything until it's been complete. He'll go out and practice tomorrow."
Stoops said Mayfield is "very hurt that he put himself in that position as well. I'm sure it's hurt him. It's embarrassed him. But he can overcome it and I'm sure he will as he moves forward." Mayfield, a senior known for his confident demeanor and outgoing personality, arrived at Oklahoma before the 2014 season as a walk-on after one season at Texas Tech. He assumed the starting job for the Sooners in 2015 and has led them to two Big 12 Conference titles. In 2015, he finished fourth in the Heisman Trophy balloting after leading the Sooners to the College Football Playoff and was third last year. - AP Sports
02/26/17 - Oklahoma QB Mayfield arrested...Quarterback Baker Mayfield of the Oklahoma Sooners was arrested early Saturday morning in Fayetteville, Ark., and charged with public intoxication, disorderly conduct, fleeing and resisting arrest. Mayfield, a 2016 Heisman Trophy finalist, was arrested at 2:56 a.m. and was released from the Washington County (Arkansas) Jail at 11:23 a.m. after he posted bond, The Oklahoman reported. A police officer was flagged down by a man to take an assault and battery report at about 2:29 a.m., according to the preliminary police report. The man was yelling at Mayfield, who told the officer that he was trying to break up an altercation that occurred before the officer arrived. 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 officer's report. Mayfield, 21, had slurred speech, had difficulty walking down stairs and was covered in food on the front of his clothing, according to the report.
When the officer asked Mayfield to come to him, Mayfield began walking away, the officer wrote in his report. When the officer told him to stop, Mayfield sprinted away, which forced the officer to chase him and tackle him. 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. "We are aware of the matter and are learning the details," the university said in a statement. "We don't have any other information at this time." Mayfield is due in court on April 7, according to the Washington County website. He also appears to have a hearing scheduled for Monday. - The Sports Xchange
