Oklahoma Sooners quarterback Baker Mayfield pleaded not guilty to charges of public intoxication, disorderly conduct, fleeing and resisting arrest Friday.

According to Cody Stavenhagen of the Tulsa World, Mayfield's attorney entered the plea on his behalf in the Fayetteville District Court. 

Mayfield was arrested in Arkansas in February.

The police report said Mayfield had slurred speech and trouble walking. Mayfield ran from police after an officer asked him to approach, which resulted in them tackling and arresting him.

According to Stavenhagen, it isn't yet known when Mayfield will appear in court, and it is possible that a plea deal could be reached.

Mayfield finished third in the Heisman Trophy voting last season after throwing for 3,965 yards, 40 touchdowns and eight interceptions.

He will return to the Sooners for his senior season in 2017, and while it is unclear if he will face team discipline, he has taken part in practices.
