Oklahoma recruit Joe Mixon claims innocence in statement


In a statement released by his lawyer, Oklahoma’s five-star running back recruit, Joe Mixon, claims he was merely defending himself during an altercation Friday morning with University of Oklahoma student Amelia Molitor.

The statement, provided by The Oklahoman, reads:

This past Friday morning Joe Mixon found himself in a situation where he was subjected to both verbal and physical attacks from a very intoxicated and troubled young woman.  As a result of these physical attacks, Joe instinctually defended himself against further harm.

As promised, Joe met with investigators from the Norman Police Department this afternoon. Throughout the meeting, Joe continued to be forthcoming and cooperative with their investigation.

We are looking forward to a thorough investigation and are very much looking forward to the truth coming out.  As we have always maintained, Joe has done nothing wrong.

Molitor alleged Mixon punched her in the face, which caused a broken bone.

The Norman Police Department is still reviewing the case, and no charges have been filed against Mixon or Molitor at this time.

The University of Oklahoma is aware of the situation and will likely withhold further comment until the findings of the case are divulged.

    If he intentionally struck her in the face at a bar 2:30 in the morning, there is no excuse. A man just does not do that to a woman. Especially a highly elite athlete who is (like all players) an ambassador for the OU football team. Not just that, but given the time and location where this happened, it quite likely Mixon beat her up when he was in a drunken state.

    OU/Stoops is trying to get DGB eligible to play this year. That’s all you should need to know about this particular situation.

    Nothing to see here, move along

    joe mix in it up with a female. Mixon obviously is not the chivalry type. were out there. everybody’s teaching girls how to fight now a days. fine, but maybe we ought to teach them how to duck also.

    Easier said than done to all those wanna be/couldve been/shouldve been top recruites who sit on their asses on the couch. Ive lived and been to those college town clubs. These females want that next top stud,and when they dont they go full crazy. Imagine bein in his shoes at 18, that shit can be confusing if u had sone drinks

    Yes goodfieldnohit — you can tell from Stoops’ actions that he is more than a bit concerned about the direction of OU recruiting. Its pretty clear that OU is no longer stacking 4 and 5 stars they way it used to. Obviously Stoops has to be worried about that … any coach of an elite program would have to be worried. Its the stacking of those 4 and 5 stars that is the mothers milk of elite program status. Fail to stack the elite players and your program is soon no longer elite. Duh! So what does he do to counteract that? By signing woman beater DGB, and trying to get him declared eligible this year, Stoops has shown that he is willing to make a deal with the devil to win. The players’ character be damned.

    Defending himself…right. That would imply your safety is in danger. If you seriously feel threatened by a female then you are a punk. Just another excuse for some putz to lay his hands on a woman. I don’t care if she’s hitting your or not, you don’t lay your hands on a woman. Shouldn’t be surprised though since OU now accepts people who like to beat on women (like DGB).

    Looks like Bob Stoops is envious of the SEC so he’s now filling up his roster with all sorts of criminals like the SEC schools.

    I can’t possibly think of a better representative of Sooner football than this woman beater.

    Check out some key guys on their roster:

    Joe Mixon RB
    assault and battery (allegedly)

    Dorian Green-Beckham WR
    pushed a chick down some stairs (allegedly)

    Frank Shannon S
    sexual assault early this year (allegedly)

    All innocent, amirite?

    I dont know what the truth is in this situation, so I wont comment on this specifically.

    But I have noticed a trend towards women acting very physical and violent toward men in public in a way that most men would not act towards a man larger than them. Maybe its because they feel there will be no consequences, but whatever it is, that needs to stop too.

    whenwill you are idiot. you need to start respecting women more. There are many females that can fight and do damage. Females have the strongest muscle in the human body for child birth which enables them to throw a very effective punch. thinking little susie can’t hurt you, will get you fuc..d up in my neighborhood.

    by neighborhood musket means trailer park.

  11. musketmaniac says: Jul 29, 2014 8:34 PM

    that’s funny, original too. No homes on wheels for me, but the neighborhood does have a lovely dyke bar

    Musket — you’re falling for that paid mouthpiece’s smokescreen. The claim that Mixon “instinctually defended himself against further harm” is so disingenuous its laughable. What “harm?” Does he have fractured facial bones? Did he have a 4 hour surgery caused by trauma? Its pretty clear what happened: Mixon beat the hell out of this woman. Now this mouthpiece is trying to justify it. The thing is — you cannot legitimately justify the unjustifiable.

  13. musketmaniac says: Jul 30, 2014 1:07 PM

    Thanks for your concern greenwave but I’m not really judging anything. if her injuries can be explained by a single punch. Than maybe he was defending himself, if her injuries are worse than he beat her ass. I don’t believe in hitting anybody, but I’m a strong believer in not letting anyone hit me. metaphysical duality maybe.

  14. greenwave81 says: Aug 1, 2014 9:12 AM

    musket — absent a confession of course one could never really know because we would have to be able to read Mixon’s mind and that would be impossible. So I don’t call it judging someone. I call it discerning what most likely happened. Based on her injuries, what most likely happened is Mixon let his emotions get the best of him. Its not an easy thing breaking bones like that. Mixon had to have used great force to do that. Why he would strike a woman almost half his size with great force? Obviously, his emotions got the better of him.

    My take on this is that in all likelihool Mixon will get off with nothing happening. Why? Several reasons. First, the woman will not press charges since doing so would upset the entire OU fan base. She very likely fears retaliation. I would. Second, the authorities there is Norman do not want to make the unpopular decision to charge Mixon. No one wants to take down the man viewed as the savior of a popular football program. So Mixon will get a pass on this one. But he should know it will be his last pass. Now he has been identified as a woman beater. Much like the common law that a person’s dog gets one free bite, so it will be with Mixon. He will get this one free strike on a woman when he gets to send her to the hospital and not face any legal repercussions. Fwiw — that is my prediction anyway.
