For Oklahoma fans anxiously looking for the Joe Mixon situation to take its next step, you’re going to have to wait.
According to Tulsa World, a police investigation into the incident involving the highly-touted 2014 signee is expected to continue into next week, with an intimation that perhaps it could extend even further. Once the investigation is wrapped up, the results will be sent to the district attorney, who will make a determination on whether charges will be filed.
“We are not closer to making an arrest,” Norman Police Department captain Todd Gibson told the World. “and would anticipate having documentation to the Cleveland County District Attorney sometime late next week.”
In a statement released by his attorney a couple of days later. it was claimed that Mixon was merely acting in self-defense.
“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.”
The release ended by stating “[a]s we have always maintained, Joe has done nothing wrong.”
Mixon was a five-star member of the Sooners’ 2014 recruiting class, rated as the No. 1 running back in the country and the No. 8 player at any position in the country.
