A Fayetteville police officer was flagged down to take an assault and battery report at 2:29 a.m. According to our sister station KFSM, he was booked into the Washington County Detention Center around 8:21 a.m. Saturday morning. Mayfield challenged Tech's decision not to grant him the year of eligibility, and he was a vocal critic of Tech during the process, saying the school's decision did not make sense because he was never on scholarship there.

Mayfield reportedly had slurred speech, was unable to walk a straight and smelled of alcohol. When the officer told him to stop, Mayfield sprinted away, which forced the officer to chase him and tackle him to the ground.

Mayfield, a senior from Austin, Texas, has started 26 games for the Sooners the past two seasons and thrown for 76 touchdowns. "We don't have any other information at this time", Oklahoma said in a statement, via Deadspin.
