Joe Mixon Wanted on Arrest Warrant Issued for Allegedly Pointing Firearm at Woman



Joe Mixon, the Cincinnati Bengals’ running back, has been arrested on a warrant.


According to court documents, the 26-year-old NFL player faces aggravated menacing charges after allegedly pointing a firearm at a woman on Jan. 21.


According to the woman’s complaint, which was filed in Ohio’s Hamilton County on Thursday, Mixon told her, “You should be slapped across the face. I should shoot you because the cops can’t find me “while allegedly pointing a gun at her.

It’s unclear whether Mixon has hired a lawyer to speak on his behalf.


Mixon’s arrest warrant follows a misdemeanor charge filed against him in 2014.


In 2014, the then-University of Oklahoma student punched classmate Amelia Molitor in the face and walked away. He was sentenced to a year of probation, 100 hours of community service, and cognitive behavior counseling as part of a plea bargain.


The video was released in 2016 with a statement from Mixon’s attorney at the time, Blake Johnson, after the Oklahoma Supreme Court ruled that the city of Norman, Oklahoma, should release surveillance footage of the incident.

In the statement, Mixon’s attorney wrote: “Mr. Mixon asked us to once again say he is sorry for the way he reacted that night. He has apologized publicly to Ms. Molitor, her friends, his family, teammates and the University. He hopes that his voluntary release of these recordings will help put this matter to rest.”


According to the statement, Mixon was “focused on completing his semester” and had been suspended from his college football team for a season.


Mixon was drafted in the second round of the 2017 NFL Draft and received a four-year contract extension in 2020, according to ESPN. His contract was worth $48 million after the extension.
