Twitter was created for days like today.

NCAA Football: Sugar Bowl-Auburn vs Oklahoma John David Mercer-USA TODAY Sports

Oklahoma Quarterback Baker Mayfield was arrested for late Friday night in Arkansas, and it’s all we ever wanted and more and now faces multiple charges including public intoxication, disorderly conduct, fleeing and resisting arrest.

According to a Fayettville police report, obtained by ESPN, Mayfield ran and was tackled, before being handcuffed.

I told Mayfield to come over to me. When I gave him that command, Mayfield began to walk away from me. I repeatedly told him to stop. Mayfield then began to sprint away. I chased after him. Mayfield was tackled to the ground. While on the ground, I gave repeated orders for him to place his arms behind his back. Mayfield kept his arms locked tight and would now allow me to place his arms behind his back. I eventually forced Mayfield’s arms behind his back. I then placed him in handcuffs

A relatively minor accusation led to an incredible morning on Twitter. Social media (bless you) wasted no time offering commentary on the situation. These are some of our favorite tweets.

In regards to the police officer that tackled Mayfield...

Quite possibly the best tweet of the day...
