Oklahoma Sooners freshman running back Joe Mixon is in hot water and under investigation for his role in an alleged incident at a Norman restaurant early Friday morning. A female Oklahoma student has accused Mixon of punching her at Pickleman’s on Campus Corner and breaking multiple bones in her face.
Mixon is the lone five-star recruit of Oklahoma’s incoming class and was expected to have a role in their offense in the 2014 season. As of now Mixon has not been charged with a crime and his attorney has since released a statement saying that Mixon was simply defending himself from an attack.
“This past Friday morning Joe Mixon found himself in a situation where he was subjected to both verbal and physical attacks from a very intoxicated and troubled young woman. As a result of these physical attacks, Joe instinctually defended himself against further harm,” Mixon’s attorney said in a statement, via the Dallas Morning News.
“As promised, Joe met with investigators from the Norman Police Department this afternoon. Throughout the meeting, Joe continued to be forthcoming and cooperative with their investigation.
“We are looking forward to a thorough investigation and are very much looking forward to the truth coming out. As we have always maintained, Joe has done nothing wrong.”
