Oklahoma Sooners quarterback and two-time Heisman finalist Baker Mayfield was arrested in Fayetteville, Ark. early Saturday morning.
Mayfield was booked for public intoxication and charged with fleeing, disorderly conduct, and resisting arrest. He is currently being held in Washington County Jail.
Mayfield's first hearing will be held on Monday, when a full arrest report will be made available. He is also scheduled to appear in court on April 7.
The University of Oklahoma athletic department said in a statement, "We are aware of the matter and are learning the details. We don't have any other information at this time."
Set to be a redshirt senior, Mayfield is returning to Oklahoma for a third season in 2017, after leading the Sooners to a Sugar Bowl victory over the Auburn Tigers. The quarterback's prolific 2016 season saw him eclipse 3,700 passing yards and 36 touchdowns for the second straight year. His TD-INT ratio over the last two years is 74-15. Mayfield joined Oklahoma's program in 2014 as a transfer walk-on from Texas Tech.
Mayfield is an early favorite to win the Heisman Trophy next season.
