Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield was arrested and booked early Saturday morning for public intoxication.
He faces one felony and two misdemeanor charges following an incident in Fayetteville, Arkansas.
According to the Fayetteville Police Department’s arrest report, Mayfield was picked up for public intoxication at 2:56 a.m. and cited for misdemeanor disorderly conduct, felony fleeing the scene, and misdemeanor resisting arrest.
His hearing is set for Monday, at which point information on his arrest will be released, meaning he could spend the weekend in jail depending on Washington County procedures.
Oklahoma issued a brief statement Saturday morning, noting only that it was aware of the incident. Exactly what actions OU will take moving forward are not yet known -- as are the details of the incident.
Mayfield has started the last two seasons at Oklahoma, throwing for nearly 4,000 yards with 46 touchdowns (six rushing) and eight interceptions in 2016 as a Heisman finalist. Heading into the ‘17 season, Mayfield is one of the early leaders to win the Heisman at 13/2 odds. He was recently granted an additional year of eligibility.
