How is your weekend going? If you’re Baker Mayfield, not great. Reports are surfacing that Oklahoma’s star quarterback was arrested in Arkansas on Friday night on complaints of public intoxication, disorderly conduct and resisting arrest.

According to the police report, Mayfield was attempting to break up a fight when officers responded. The officer asked Mayfield to stick around so he could get his statement. It was at that time that Mayfield started to become beligerent by yelling profanities before trying to flee the scene. He was chased down and tackled by the officer, where he continued to fight the officer by refusing to put his arms behind his back.

Dylan Buckingham of KFOR out of Oklahoma City was able to obtain a portion of the police report.

“I asked Mayfield to stop and talk to me. Mayfield stated he was trying to break up an altercation that had occurred prior to my arrival. I asked Mayficld to stay so I could take his statement for my report. While talking to the other party involved. Mayfield was yelling profanities and was 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 l gave that command. Mayfield began to walk away from me. I repeatedly told him to stop. Mayfield then began to sprint away. I chased alter him. Mayfield was tackled to the ground. While on the ground. I gave repeated orders for him to place his arms behind his back.
