Baker Mayfield, who announced in December that he would be returning for his senior year at Oklahoma, was arrested on Saturday morning on a list of charges.

He was charged with public intoxication, disorderly conduct, resisting arrest and fleeing, according to the Washington County (Arkansas) sheriff’s office.

According to the preliminary police report obtained by ESPN.com, a police officer was flagged down to take an assault and battery report at about 2:29 a.m. Saturday. The person who flagged the officer was yelling at Mayfield, who told the officer he had been trying to break up an altercation. 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 report.

The report stated Mayfield 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 over, he began to walk away. When the officer told him to stop, Mayfield sprinted away, which forced the officer to chase him and tackle him to the ground.

The report further stated that police had to forcibly put Mayfield hands behind his back after he refused to do so on his own. He was then put in cuffs and taken to jail. He is due in court on April 7th according to the sheriff’s office.

“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.”

This comes at a bad time for Mayfield as he will be entering his senior year on the field in the fall. The last thing NFL scouts want on their team is a quarterback who makes bad decision away from the game.

Mayfield has finished two straight seasons in the top five of the Heisman voting and broke the FBS season passing efficiency record last year.
