Oklahoma RB Joe Mixon charged with one misdemeanor from altercation
Oklahoma running back Joe Mixon will be charged with one misdemeanor count of an act resulting in gross injury after an incident in Norman.
Oklahoma freshman running back Joe Mixon will be charged with one misdemeanor count of an act resulting in gross injury for his role in an altercation with another OU student in July.
Last month, Amelia Rae Molitor, 20, told The Oklahoman that Mixon struck her in the face at Pickelman's Gourmet Cafe. Kevin Finlay, the attorney representing Mixon, insisted that his client has done nothing wrong in the incident. According to Finlay, Mixon was "subjected to both verbal and physical attacks from a very intoxicated and troubled young woman."
Authorities spoke with Mixon and Norman police turned over the findings of its investigation to the Cleveland County district attorney. No warrant is expected to be issued for Mixon's arrest, but The Oklahoman was able to confirm the charge.
The Oklahoman has confirmed that the Cleveland County District Attorney will charge Mixon with one misdemeanor count of an act resulting in gross injury. The charge is generally referred to as outraging public decency.
Details from the back-and-forth between Mixon and Molitor can be found in affidavit of probable cause, filed Friday.
Mixon did not report to fall camp with the rest of the Oklahoma team, and a school spokesperson said they would "continue to monitor the situation." The former five-star prospect met with investigators.
