The saga surrounding Baker Mayfield and his February arrest for public intoxication may be in his rearview mirror for good.

The star Oklahoma quarterback was ordered to pay a total of $943.20 after accepting a plea deal pertaining to three misdemeanors connected with his arrest on Feb. 25, according to Tyler Palmateer of The Norman Transcript, citing the Fayetteville prosecutor's office.

The total monetary value of the fines were broken down to $100 per charge, $160 in court costs, and $483.20 in restitution. Details of the fines were not made known until Monday.

In a statement released by the university last week, Mayfield expressed both his disappointment in himself, as well as his eagerness to move forward in a positive manner.

"As I stated earlier, I could not be more disappointed in my actions and the embarrassment they caused for my university and team," Mayfield said. "I am anxious to fulfill the responsibilities that have been set and am continuing to dedicate myself to the high standard that everyone rightfully expects from someone in my position."

Mayfield will also be required to participate in alcohol education classes, as well as fulfill 35 hours of community service as part of his deal.
