Reportedly, Mayfield had been attempting to break up an altercation and was asked to remain on the scene of the incident by police so they could take his statement. Mayfield began yelling profanities and causing more of a scene. He had slurred speech, could barely walk down the stairs, and lots of food covering the front of his shirt. When he was called over by an officer for a statement, Mayfield began to walk away, before ultimately sprinting from the officer who chased and tackled Mayfield to the ground. You know, that really is an impressive feat for a police officer, considering the athleticism of Mayfield on the football field.
Well, this is a pretty funny arrest story and it will be interesting to see how this goes over with coach Stoops at Oklahoma. But hey, at least he didn’t knock a girl unconscious. -E
