Reports: Police show media video of Sooner Joe Mixon punching woman
Media members were given five looks at a video showing Oklahoma freshman Joe Mixon punch a woman in a restaurant in July, multiple media outlets report.
Mixon, a highly sought running back in the 2014 recruiting class, was suspended from the team on Aug. 18 after he pleaded not guilty to a misdemeanor charge of assault.
Newsok.com was one of the outlets with access to the video. This is what reporter Ryan Aber writes:
On the surveillance video taken from Pickleman’s Gourmet Cafe at just after 2:30 a.m. on July 25, the alleged victim, Amelia Rae Molitor leans over a table talking to people on the other side of the table before making a motion like she’s calling someone over.
Soon, Mixon appears wearing a t-shirt with sunglasses propped on his forehead and a lanyard around his neck.
Neither Molitor nor Mixon appear threatened based on their body language and Mixon appears to start to walk away before Molitor pushes him. Mixon lunges at her with a closed fist by his side before Molitor slaps him near the top of his neck on his left side.
That’s when Mixon delivers a right hook that knocks Molitor first into the table on her left ear and then to the floor where she laid motionless for several moments.
Shortly thereafter she stands up but staggers a bit before sitting down on a chair as others call police and get napkins and ice for Molitor.
Mixon’s punch allegedly broke several bones in Molitor’s face. According to Newsok.com, he is schedule to make a court appearance on Sept. 23.
