Oklahoma running back Joe Mixon, a five-star member of the Class of 2014, was out celebrating his 18th birthday, when something went horribly wrong. According to information reported by, Mixon was involved in a serious altercation that required Norman police to respond early Friday morning.

Charges have not been issued by police at this time. Police reportedly want to review security camera footage that may have caught the incident before making any decisions. As of now, details of the incident are a bit limited due to the fact that one or more of the people tied to the police report are juveniles.

Here are some of the early details reported by, the Oklahoma affiliate for Rivals;

Norman police responded to an incident at Pickleman’s Gourmet Café in Norman at 2:39 a.m. on Friday. A spokesman for Pickleman’s gave no comment on the situation.

A synopsis of the report suggests aggravated assault and battery.
​ ​
Sources indicated Mixon was not arrested at the scene as officers wanted to study security footage of the incident before filing any charges.

The incident report obtained by SoonerScoop contains limited information, as one or more juveniles is involved. A spokesman for OU is aware of the incident and issued the following statement:

“We are aware of the matter and it is under internal review.”

Oklahoma is aware of the situation and allowing the legal investigation and process to play out before commenting any further. Mixon was rated a five-star running back by Rivals in the Class of 2014. Rivals also ranked Mixon as the number one overall running back in the country.

    Nothing good happens in pubic areas at 2:39 am. The booze/whatever kicks in and all hell can and usually breaks loose. See if Snoops acts as quickly to this as he did to Saban’s remarks..

    A really stupid kid. Should be dropped from the program immediately. He should have been home and in bed where he belongs.

    Instead of worrying why he was out so late, why don’t people start worrying over why he punched a young girl in the face?

    Lots of people are out late and they don’t break a girl’s face in four places (allegedly).

    Jimmy53: right on.

    What… Second thread I’ve read on CFT this morning about players in trouble with the law and neither were SEC players. Where are all those trolls that constantly post on SEC threads about “thugs”, “criminals” and “trash” only playing in the SEC!

    (duckst, packerbadger, onbucky, onlyoneleft, plys2124, brownstown, barkleyblows, and many many more)

    They are nothing more than jealous trolls, dhardy.

    I can do the same: All Texas Longhorns are rapists. All TCU players deal coke and weed, and have episodes of roid rage. All OU players get paid at jobs that don’t require them to show up to, and apparently also assault women.

    See how easy it is?

    dhardy8207 & goodfieldnohit:

    Way to rise above it all and prove you’re better than the trolls. Oh wait, you didn’ all….in fact you did the exact same thing…like children.

    Best of luck with that!

    I would expect nothing more from you since you also take shots at the SEC. My post was directed at those who repeatedly post only on threads that involve SEC players and post such nonsense as that is the only conference with issues.

    Since my post did not name you as one who constantly makes this a practice, I’m not sure why you felt the need to defend their ignorance. But I hope for what ever self serving reason led you to do so I hope that putting me in check made your day!

    I am an OU fan. I do not want Beckham on the team and if the story is true as told I want this punk off the team as well. My personal feeling on Beckham is that while he is a fantastic talent,I hope he never see’s the field for OU. I don’t want to root for a criminal. Same with Mixon. If this is shown to be true,he needs to be kicked off the team. One of the quotes from an OU coach is that he almost left the team already. The coach said he is flaky and doubts he will last the year.

    My point, jimmy53, is that it’s dangerous, careless, and just plain dumb to paint everyone else with a broad stereotypical brush.

    But apparently, you have no understanding of the concept of hyperbole.

  14. jimmy53 says: Jul 26, 2014 3:11 PM


    Your intention wasn’t so much hyperbolic as it was simply an off-topic attempt to use this instance to ‘troll the trolls’…

    but hey, at least you didn’t resort to some immature behavior like insulting a stranger’s intellect…

    That would be the most childish thing ever (oh look, I do know what hyperbole is)…

  15. jimmy53 says: Jul 26, 2014 3:19 PM


    Poor SEC–everyone’s out to get you. Please, I’m a Nole fan—I’ve been living with crab and rape comments for months. And you don’t see me jumping on random threads to try and take OFF-TOPIC shots at random posters.

    That said, this is a comment board–if you post an OFF-TOPIC childish comment, and you can’t hand someone calling you out on it (rightly, I might add) perhaps these boards are a bit too much for your delicate sensibilities…

    As for making my day?–I gave your words about as much time as it took to write this comment….

    Don’t need your empathy nor do I need your scolding. I’m not a child and funny I don’t ever see you respond to anyone else who post “SEC, SEC, and such nonsense on the threads that pertain to SEC players and teams. This would be a clue that you’re really not interested in pointing out everyone’s “off topic comments” or “childish behavior”. Why not take offense when ANYONE does this only when an SEC fan does it right?

    I have the ability to post what I want when I want, just as you and everyone else on here. You however seem to have appointed yourself the one to deam what is appropriate and what is not so I hope you can hold up to that position you got there and be sure to call EVERYONE out! Not just an SEC fan….

    Broke her face in 4 places.

    Bob Stoops will tell you that it’s Kevin Sumlin’s fault.
