Welcome to Monday. Here's a summary of the news:

OU quarterback Baker Mayfield arrested in Arkansas

The Oklahoman's Brooke Pryor reports:

Mayfield, a 2016 Heisman finalist, was arrested by Fayetteville police on charges of public intoxication, disorderly conduct, fleeing and resisting arrest. He was arrested at 2:56 a.m. Saturday and was released from the Washington County Jail at 11:23 a.m. when he posted bond.

According to the officer notes in Mayfield's arrest report, a man flagged down the officer at 2:29 a.m. to take an Assault and Battery report. The man was yelling at Mayfield, who told the officer that he was trying to break up an altercation that occurred before the officer got there. The officer told Mayfield to wait so he could take his statement after he talked with the man who flagged him down.

While he was waiting, according to the report, Mayfield was yelling curse words and "causing a scene." The officer noted that Mayfield had trouble walking down stairs, his speech was slurred, there was food on the front of his shirt, and he smelled like alcohol. When the officer asked Mayfield to come to him, Mayfield began walking away, the officer wrote in his report.

Columnists Jenni Carlson and Berry Tramel weigh in on the matter.
