Mayfield pleaded not guilty back in April before accepting a plea bargain on June 14; the details were not released until Monday.

Mayfield, who is also required to pay $160 in court costs and $483.20 in restitution, won’t be prosecuted for a resisting arrest charge as a result of the plea deal. Dash cam footage released to the public showed Mayfield being tackled by police after running from the scene.

Last week, new Oklahoma coach Lincoln Riley announced sanctions for the Heisman finalist as further punishment for his February arrest, although he won’t miss any games in the 2017 season for the Sooners.

Mayfield will be required to participate in alcohol education services at Oklahoma and perform 35 hours of community service — including working with law enforcement. He will have to serve his school punishment during the summer before the fall semester begins.
