OU Quarterback Baker Mayfield Reaches Plea Deal
NORMAN, Oklahoma - Sooner quarterback Baker Mayfield has accepted a plea deal for his February arrest in Fayetteville, Arkansas.
Mayfield will pay about $450 in fines after pleading guilty to public intoxication, fleeing and disorderly conduct.
Mayfield was visiting Fayetteville when he ran from officers during questioning about an assault. Officers tackled Mayfield and he was initially charged with resisting arrest but that charge was later dropped.
Last week, the University of Oklahoma announced that Mayfield would have to do 35 hours of community service as punishment for the arrest.
