Fayetteville police officer Scott Brand was flagged down at 2:29 a.m. Saturday to take an assault and battery report from a person yelling at Mayfield, who said he had been trying to break up an altercation, according to a preliminary police report obtained by ESPN. The officer asked Mayfield to remain on the scene so he could take his statement, at which point Mayfield began “yelling profanities and causing a scene,” according to the report.
Mayfield had slurred speech, difficulty walking down stairs and food covering the front of his clothing. When the officer called Mayfield over, he began to walk away before sprinting, forcing the officer to chase and tackle him, according to the report. Mayfield then refused to place his arms behind his back, despite repeated orders to do so,
