Arkansas Police Tackled and Arrested Baker Mayfield After Sprinting from Scene



Baker Mayfield was arrested and charged with four counts on Friday evening in Fayetteville, including public intoxication, fleeing, disorderly conduct, and resisting arrest.

Being a Division I quarterback and Heisman contender, his arrest went down exactly as you might imagine.

He ran.

From the police report and arresting officer’s statement, obtained by ESPN:

Mayfield was yelling profanities and causing a scene. Mayfield was intoxicated. When he first came over to me, he had difficulty walking down a couple stairs. Mayfield’s speech was slurred and he had the odor of intoxicants coming from his person. The front of Mayfield’s clothing was covered in food. I told Mayfield to come over to me. When I gave him that command, Mayfield began to walk away from me. I repeatedly told him to stop.

Mayfield then began to sprint away. I chased after him. Mayfield was tackled to the ground. While on the ground, I gave repeated orders for him to place his arms behind his back. Mayfield kept his arms locked tight and would now allow me to place his arms behind his back. I eventually forced Mayfield’s arms behind his back. I then placed him in handcuffs.
