Oklahoma Sooners quarterback Baker Mayfield was arrested February 25 in Arkansas on charges that included public intoxication, resisting arrest, and disorderly conduct.

On Friday, Fayetteville police released arrest video that shows Mayfield fleeing police offers before being tackled.

Be warned that the video — obtained by Tulsa World — contains NSFW language and a vicious tackle:

Ouch.

Mayfield has a court date scheduled for April 7. The 21-year-old quarterback entered 2017 as the favorite to win this year’s Heisman Trophy.
