Video Of Baker Mayfield Getting Tackled By Cops Has Been Released

Here’s a little Friday afternoon news dump for you. A video circulated a couple of weeks ago that people claimed was Baker getting slammed by a bouncer. Turns out that was completely fake. Dash cam footage of the actual incident was realeased today.

The real question here is: does that cop have any eligibility left? I think Bielema could use him at outside linebacker.

Here are some quotes from the incident

Baker Mayfield arrest video released. Officer: "You just made the charges a lot worse. You shouldn't have run from the police." #Sooners

Mayfield, who had soy sauce on his hoodie, asked more than once "what did I do wrong?" Not confrontational, almost asking self that question

Mayfield sprinted only for about three steps before being tackled hard against a wall. "I'm done." #Sooners

Mayfield: "I didn't do anything. Are you kidding me?"
Officer:"No, you are just a dumb ### who tried to run."
