Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield and 2017 Heisman Trophy favorite was arrested on charges of public intoxication, fleeing police, resisting arrest and disorderly conduct.

The Sooners quarterback was jailed because of these charges, per the Washington County Sheriff department in Arkansas.

Mayfield was a Heisman finalist the past two years. Last year he passed for 3,965 yards with 40 touchdowns and added six more touchdowns on the ground for the Sooners. He opted to stay in school for the 2017 season, rather than declare for the draft.

He arrived at Oklahoma in 2014 after transferring from Texas Tech.
