Oklahoma Football: Baker Mayfield’s Punishment Announced


Baker Mayfield’s arrest has reached a conclusion.

After being arrested on Feb. 25 while under the influence, Mayfield attempted to feel the scene. He was tackled by police almost immediately.

According to the police report, Mayfield said he was trying to break up an altercation. When police asked him to stay where he was so that they could take his statement, he started yelling profanity.

He wasn’t found with any drugs, alcohol or weapons after being searched by police.

Mayfield will be required to complete 35 hours of community service, and undergo alcohol therapy classes. He will not be suspended from the team for any length of time and will be available for the season opener.

Oklahoma will be relying on Mayfield heavily in the first season in the post-Bob Stoops era. The Sooners open their season against UTEP on Sept. 2. Then, they face a huge matchup with Ohio State on Week 2 of the season.
