With the 911 tape in the investigation involving Oklahoma freshman running back Joe Mixon released Tuesday, one other key piece of evidence remains unreleased — the surveillance video.
The video from inside Pickleman’s Gourmet Cafe, where the alleged assault took place early Friday morning, might not become public for a long while, if at all.
The presence of surveillance footage was mentioned multiple times in the 911 call made around 2:30 a.m. Friday.
Mixon’s attorney, Kevin Finlay, requested a copy of the surveillance video from the Norman Police Department.
Norman Police did not provide Finlay with a copy of the video but did allow Finlay to view the tape at the department on Monday afternoon.
Police have said they are not prepared to release the tape due to its “evidentiary value” as the investigation into the incident continues.
Barring a leak of the tape, it likely wouldn’t be viewed by the public until a preliminary hearing or a trial if there are eventually charges filed in the case.
It could also be released if Cleveland County District Attorney Greg Mashburn declines to file charges in the case.
