The dash-cam footage of Oklahoma redshirt senior QB Baker Mayfield being tackled and arrested in late February has surfaced.
Mayfield was arrested in Arkansas on charges of public intoxication, disorderly conduct, resisting arrest and fleeing after he became antsy when police asked him to stay put following his breaking up a confrontation between two other parties. When he attempted to run, he got all of three steps in before an officer tackled him against a low wall. Mayfield, a Heisman hopeful for 2017, has since apologized for the arrest.

Oklahoma redshirt senior QB Baker Mayfield apologized for his weekend arrest on charges of public intoxication, disorderly conduct, resisting arrest and fleeing.

"I made the biggest mistake of my life by putting myself in this situation," Mayfield wrote on social media. "I know that I represent the University of Oklahoma on a very large scale, therefore I know better than to bring bad attention and scrutiny to the school and people that I love." The Heisman finalist was arrested early on Saturday morning. Per the police report, he had been trying to break up an altercation, but became profane after officers asked him to stay put. He was eventually tackled after he attempted to exit stage left when approached for questioning. He reportedly showed signs of slurred speech and had difficulty walking. The university has not punished Mayfield publicly as of yet and it is possible that discipline could be handled internally. The quarterback is set to appear in court on April 7.

Oklahoma redshirt senior QB Baker Mayfield was arrested in Arkansas and charged with public intoxication, disorderly conduct, resisting arrest and fleeing early on Saturday morning.

Per a police report obtained by ESPN, an officer was flagged down regarding an assault and battery accusation at around 2:30 a.m. Mayfield was on the scene and said that he was trying to break up the altercation. He was told to stay (in order to take a statement), at which point he began to yell profanities. When Mayfield was asked to come over to give the statement, he began to walk away, then began to sprint away before the officer tackled him. Mayfield was reportedly showing difficulty in walking down stairs, had slurred speech and his clothing was covered in food. The star quarterback was eventually handcuffed. He is set to appear in court on April 7. In a statement, Oklahoma said, "We are aware of the matter and are learning the details." This past season, Mayfield threw for 3,965 yards and posted a 40/8 TD/INT ratio.

Pro Football Focus' Palazzolo tagged Oklahoma redshirt senior QB Baker Mayfield as the best returning player for 2017.

No huge surprise there. PFF named him both the offensive player of the year and the best passer for the 2016 season. He has graded out as their top quarterback in each of the last two seasons. Writes Palazzolo, "[Mayfield] has an excellent feel for the game, both inside the pocket and out of it, and [he] has led the nation in passer rating under pressure each of the last two years (117.4 in 2015 and 119.9 in 2016)." During the 2016 campaign (including bowl action), Mayfield threw for 3,965 yards with a 40/8 TD/INT ratio over the course of 13 games played. Over the last two seasons, he has racked up an immaculate 76/15 TD/INT ratio.

Bovada listed Oklahoma redshirt senior QB Baker Mayfield as the favorite to win the 2017 Heisman Trophy at 11/2.

Louisville QB Lamar Jackson, who won the Heisman this past season on the strength of a brilliant campaign as both a runner and thrower, doesn't even follow Mayfield on the board. Instead, Ohio State QB J.T. Barrett comes in at 6/1, with Jackson slotting in at 7/1. Barrett's going to need to improve on a wobbly 2016 season if he is to have any shot of actually winning the award. Other contenders of note: USC QB Sam Darnold (9/1), Penn State RB Saquon Barkley and QB Trace McSorley (10/1) and Washington QB Jake Browning (10/1).

Oklahoma redshirt junior QB Baker Mayfield received Pro Football Focus' top grade for a quarterback in 2016.

PFF assigned Mayfield a grade of 93.7 on a 1-100 scale. Jeff Dooley notes that the Sooner star led the country in pass efficiency under pressure -- the second consecutive season he has achieved that feat -- and also finished tops in the land with an adjusted completion rate of 62.1%. In terms of the 6-foot-1, 212-pounder's raw statistical output, Mayfield has thrown for 3,369 yards with a 38/8 TD/INT ratio over the course of 12 games. He has already announced that he will return to Oklahoma for his final season of collegiate eligibility in 2017.

Oklahoma redshirt junior QB Baker Mayfield's playing style reminds analyst Daniel Jeremiah of Johnny Manziel at Texas A&M and Chase Daniel at Missouri.

"His lack of size and pure arm talent will temper the enthusiasm of NFL evaluators, but he's a special player at the college level," Jeremiah wrote. "He's coming back to school for his senior season and I think that's the right move for him. He needs to continue to get stronger as he goes through his final season." Oklahoma lists Mayfield at 6-foot-1 and 212 pounds, but he'd likely measure smaller if someone else had the tape measure.

Oklahoma redshirt junior QB Baker Mayfield was named the winner of the Burlsworth Award.

The Burlsworth is awarded to those who began their collegiate careers as walk-ons. Mayfield won the honor over Washington State QB Luke Falk and Northwestern WR Austin Carr. This marks the second year in a row that Mayfield has taken home the award. He finished his 2016 regular season having thrown for 3,369 yards (71.2% completions) with a 38/8 TD/INT ratio. Mayfield will be returning for his redshirt senior campaign in 2017, so a third consecutive Burlsworth is not out of the question when all is said and done.

Oklahoma redshirt junior QB Baker Mayfield announced that he's coming back for his final season next year.

The redshirt junior was granted an additional season of eligibility prior to the campaign when the Big 12 voted to allow walk-ons to transfer within the conference without losing a season of eligibility. Mayfield, who finished fourth in the Heisman Trophy voting last year, threw for 3,669 yards and 38 touchdowns this year.

Oklahoma redshirt junior QB Baker Mayfield completed 13 of 19 attempts for 288 yards and three touchdowns in the school's 38-20 win over Oklahoma State.

Mayfield should return to Oklahoma, as his style fits the college game much more than the pros. That is not a criticism, as Mayfield can help Oklahoma reach their peak due to his big play ability. He does put stress on his offensive line at times, however, he saves them from poorly blocking at almost an equal rate.

Oklahoma redshirt junior QB Baker Mayfield threw for two touchdowns and rushed for another two in Saturday's 56-28 win over West Virginia.

Mayfield might have totaled four touchdowns in the contest, but this wasn't a particularly flashy performance by the redshirt junior. He completed 9-of-15 passes for 169 yards and was intercepted once. As a runner, he had just seven yards on the ground. That he scored two touchdowns on his five official carries is a nice enough bonus for fantasy owners. For the season as a whole, Mayfield has now thrown for 3,381 yards with a 35/8 TD/INT ratio. He has notched six rushing touchdowns in 11 games.

Oklahoma redshirt junior QB Baker Mayfield went 20-of-25 for 300 yards two touchdowns and an interception for 236 yards and four touchdowns in Saturday's win over Baylor.

Both of Mayfield's scores went to stud WR Dede Westbrook. His 29-yard touchdown pass found a streaking, tight-rope walking Westbrookin the first quarter to help stake the Sooners to a 14-0 lead. A 40-yard touchdown pass to Westbrook later on sealed things, more or less, putting Oklahoma up 28-10. The Sooners ground out the clock from there.

Oklahoma redshirt junior QB Baker Mayfield completed 25 of 34 attempts for 328 yards, four touchdowns and one interception in the school's 34-24 win over Iowa State.

Mayfield underthrew Jazz Reynolds for a long touchdown, so his numbers might have been even better. Mayfield is a really fun collegiate quarterback, creating space and thriving even when the structure of the play breaks down. Oklahoma's rest of season schedule includes Baylor, West Virginia and Oklahoma State.

Oklahoma redshirt junior QB Baker Mayfield completed 16-of-24 passes for 236 yards and four touchdowns in Saturday's 56-3 win over Kansas.

Mayfield was unable to match the operatic heights of last weekend's offensive explosion offered against Texas Tech (545 yards passing, seven touchdowns), but that kind of superhero performance wasn't needed on Saturday. The 6-foot-1, 209-pounder's did the bulk of his work in the second quarter, when he fired off a trio of scoring passes to Dede Westbrook, Mark Andrews and Dimitri Flowers. Mayfield has now thrown for at least four touchdowns in each of his last three games. He has tossed 27 scores through eight contests completed.

Oklahoma redshirt junior QB Baker Mayfield completed 27-of-36 passes for 545 yards and seven touchdowns in Saturday's 66-59 win over Texas Tech.

Mayfield threw for seven touchdown passes and somehow ended up a footnote to Pat Mahomes, who served as a CFB solar eclipse in blocking out the statistics of all others with his 734 yards passing. Solar eclipses cannot block out wins, though, and it was Mayfield and company who ultimately got the last laugh. Mayfield tossed three of his seven touchdown passes in the first half, a warm-up for an even more prolific second half. 14 of Mayfield's 23 touchdown passes have come in his last three games. He will have a strong chance to add to this recent binge (though maybe not to the tune of seven) when he takes on Kansas next weekend.
