NORMAN — Norman Police are still investigating assault allegations against highly-touted Oklahoma freshman running back Joe Mixon, and charges aren’t likely to be filed Monday, the district attorney’s office told The Oklahoman.
Mixon is being investigated for allegedly assaulting a female OU student at Picklemen’s Gourmet Cafe on Campus Corner early Friday morning.
Norman Police issued a news release Monday afternoon confirming that Mixon is an “involved party” in the investigation.
Amelia Rae Molitor is identified as the alleged victim.
“The facts of the incident as reported to police describe an altercation … that turned physical and concluded with Molitor sustaining injuries to her face,” the release states.
According to the release, Mixon was not present when police arrived on the scene Friday morning, and that there is video evidence of the incident.
“The evidentiary value of the recording prohibits its release at this time,” the release states. “When Police Detectives conclude their investigation all pertinent documentation will be submitted to the District Attorney’s Office for review.”
In a Friday interview with The Oklahoman, Molitor said that Mixon “broke my face in four places,” adding that she hopes he “goes to prison for years.”
Mixon, a five-star prospect from Freedom High School in Oakley, Calif., became one of the most hyped Oklahoma football signees in years. Rivals.com ranked Mixon as the No. 1 all-purpose back in the 2014 recruiting class.
He attended OU’s spring game in April and spent much of the afternoon standing behind the Sooners’ bench signing hundreds of autographs for overjoyed fans.
