NORMAN — While police continue to investigate the incident involving Oklahoma freshman running back Joe Mixon, his accuser is back in Oklahoma and appeared in court Wednesday.

Amelia Rae Molitor, 20, appeared in Cleveland County District Court in an unrelated case.

Molitor, an OU student, had been at home in Texas since shortly after the July 26 incident.

She reportedly underwent surgery in Texas due to injuries sustained in the incident.

Molitor alleged that Mixon hit her in an early morning altercation at Pickleman’s Gourmet Cafe near the OU campus.

“He punched me one time,” Molitor told The Oklahoman the next day. “He broke my face in four places … my nose, my sinuses … they’re broken.”

Through his attorney, Kevin Finlay, Mixon claims that he acted in self-defense.

Finlay said Mixon “instinctually defended himself against further harm” in the incident.

A bench warrant was issued for Molitor on July 24 in an April 2013 charge of possession of hydrocodone, drug paraphernalia and possession of a false identification card.

Molitor's bench warrant was recalled with the appearance and further action in her case is scheduled for Aug. 26.

Norman Police said last week that it would likely be late this week at the earliest before a decision on whether or not charges would be filed in the July 26 incident was reached.

The ability to interview Molitor in connection with the investigation would be an important step to a resolution.

Mixon is not participating in team activities with the Sooners as the investigation continues.
