In February, the Oklahoma Sooners’ star quarterback found himself in a bit of trouble with the law. Being arrested in Fayetteville, Arkansas, Baker Mayfield was charged with public intoxication. Without any form of punishment being handed down immediately, many wondered of the repercussions given the recent legal trouble of former players.
Head coach Bob Stoops addressed the media Monday afternoon. Of course, the topic of discussion turned toward Mayfield and the arrest. Asked about the incident, the coach said the he’s, “very disappointed that Baker put himself in that situation. It’s still going on so we won’t determine anything until it’s complete.”
until it's complete …. it's hurt him, it's embarrassed him. he can overcome it."

The video that circulated the internet of the arrest clearly pointed to a lack of judgment from Mayfield — resisting arrest as well as yelling at the officers called to the scene. Regardless, the University of Oklahoma has decided to wait until the legal process runs it’s course until a punishment can or will be determined.
