Bob Stoops: No punishment for Baker Mayfield until after legal process
The Oklahoma quarterback won't miss spring practice because of his offseason arrest
Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops updated the status of starting quarterback Baker Mayfield at his first spring practice press conference on Monday.
Mayfield was. Stoops said he was “very disappointed” that Mayfield put himself in that position, but told reporters that the star quarterback will be with his teammates when the Sooners start spring practice on Tuesday.
Any team punishment, Stoops said, will be delayed until after the legal process is completed.
According to a preliminary police report, an officer was called to a scene for an assault and battery report. When the officer began interviewing Mayfield, who was allegedly intoxicated, the quarterback began “yelling profanities” and “causing a scene.” He then allegedly attempted to flee from the scene and resisted arrest when he was caught.
