Oklahoma QB Baker Mayfield fined after February arrest in Arkansas

A Fayetteville, Arkansas, court handed out the punishment for Heisman candidate and Oklahoma QB Baker Mayfield on Monday morning.

According to the Norman Transcript, Mayfield will be fined $943.20 after accepting a plea deal for three misdemeanors from his February arrest in Arkansas. He was fined $100 each for fleeing, disorderly conduct and public intoxication, and he is ordered to pay $483.20 in restitution and $160 in court costs. Mayfield plead guilty in district court on June 14.

Oklahoma also announced that Mayfield will have to complete 35 hours of community service and complete a university alcohol education class. He released a statement of apology through the university last week.

“As I stated earlier, I could not be more disappointed in my actions and the embarrassment they caused for my university and team,” Mayfield said. “I am anxious to fulfill the responsibilities that have been set and am continuing to dedicate myself to the high standard that everyone rightfully expects from someone in my position.”

Mayfield enters 2017 as a Heisman Trophy favorite after throwing for over 3,900 yards and 40 touchdowns last season.
