The investigation involving Oklahoma freshman running back Joe Mixon could last another week or more, a Norman Police official said Wednesday.
“We are not closer to making an arrest,” Norman Police captain Todd Gibson told the Tulsa World in an e-mail. “and would anticipate having documentation to the Cleveland County District Attorney sometime late next week.”
In an e-mail to The Oklahoman, Gibson confirmed the Tulsa World report but said it could take even longer, calling the conclusion of the ongoing investigation “somewhat of a moving target.”
Norman Police continue to interview those involved in the incident that occurred early Friday morning at Pickleman’s Gourmet Cafe just north of OU’s campus.
An altercation there around 2:30 a.m. led to Amelia Rae Molitor, 20, being struck in the face. Molitor alleges that Mixon hit her. She said she broke four bones.
Mixon’s attorney, Kevin Finlay, said earlier this week in a statement that his client had done nothing wrong.
Oklahoma’s players report Wednesday and preseason practice begins Thursday.
An OU spokesman said earlier this week that the incident was under internal review.
Mixon, a five-star recruit, has been expected to compete for immediate playing time.
