Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield was arrested Saturday morning in Fayetteville, Arkansas for public intoxication, disorderly conduct, resisting arrest and fleeing. Shannon Sharpe, co-host of Fox Sports’ Undisputed, suggests Mayfield would’ve been treated differently had he been black.
Mayfield reportedly sprinted away from a police officer before he was tackled, and he was also “yelling profanities and causing a scene.” Sharpe cited several incidents where black people weren’t given the benefit of the doubt by police, and it’s an intriguing point in regards to Mayfield.
Oklahoma has yet to make a decision on punishment for Mayfield.
