Attorney: Racial slurs, physical confrontation prompted Joe Mixon’s actions

Joe Mixon

Oklahoma Sooners running back Joe Mixon was charged with one misdemeanor count of an act resulting in gross injury Friday due a July 25th confrontation with a female defendant, who accused Mixon of punching her in the face and allegedly caused four broken bones.

Mixon maintains his innocence in the matter. If he’s eventually convicted of the charge, he could face up to a year in jail.

Mixon’s lawyer released a statement after the charges were revealed by the District Attorney’s office:

    Atleast he didn’t run over someone intentionally.

    Surprised this guy wasn’t a michigan or Notre Cheat commit. Seams like he would fit right in at those two places.

    I’m getting tired of people hiding behind laws and thinking there are no consequences for their actions. I’m not saying I think physical violence should be the first resort, but everyone has had a run in with someone you wish you could just crush. If he broke the law, he broke the law, but if he was verbally and physically assaulted, I applaud him for not being a punching bag.

    hey Barkleyblows… There is a moral to that Tony Stewart incident… Don’t be stupid and charge a car going at any speed above park… Don’t want none, don’t start none. The kid should get a Darwin award.

    This is the new defense. Do something incredibly awful and then cry “racism.” Even if she did say something racist there is no reason to deck a woman in the face. What a coward move

    You call me the n word.

    I get to break four bones in your face.

    Really?

    p.s. Barkleyblows…..a buckeye lecturing us about the morals of other programs, that’s rich.

    Typical of white people. Just weaklings. Talk all that trash, call people slurs & every name but a mother of god & when you hold them accountable with a punch that crushes their face. What do they do? Call the police & then try to sue. LOLOL just the weakest & most pussified people on the planet.

    teedraper:

    That’s the most transparent troll job ever.

    Try harder if you want people to fall for your garbage.

    Sincerely,

    Some Random White Guy

    Right! What some people want stoop to say. Kid is a no account thug. However some Lawyer will try and make him look like a choir boy. This crap gets old.

    Not to mention the girl has a history of stalking and assault, oh but nevermind that let’s just all go ahead and take her side

  11. takingbovadasmoney says: Aug 15, 2014 8:40 PM

    She has a history of stalking, assault, and threw some n bombs. So The easiest way to diffuse the situation is by breaking four bones in her face? Smarten up kid.

  12. greenwave81 says: Aug 15, 2014 9:30 PM

    Given her significant injuries, Mixon ought to be happy they did not file aggravated assault and battery charges, a felony. Now he should learn to control his temper.

  13. 4512dawg4512 says: Aug 15, 2014 10:16 PM

    @ bovada, I’m sorry man I didn’t know you were there to witness exactly what happened, let’s all take YOUR word for it

  14. abninf says: Aug 15, 2014 10:28 PM

    The race card is the last card in the deck.

  15. reesesteel23 says: Aug 16, 2014 10:16 AM

    Does bringing up Al Sharpton or Jesse help you people cope with the fact that racism is still alive and kicking? If so, more power to you.

    How about we talk about the fact that she had warrants out for her arrest at the time and also has a history of drunken disorderly conduct on campus. Not to mention assaulted him first. Both need to control their anger.

  16. mogogo1 says: Aug 16, 2014 11:26 AM

    He’s charged with a felony and jail time and his attorney is “disappointed” about the puny misdemeanor count that was also brought against him?

    They’d better hope her supposed “attack” of him resulted in some sort of injuries to justify him breaking 4 bones in her face. Because he didn’t just hold her off–he apparently pummeled her.

  17. musketmaniac says: Aug 16, 2014 12:08 PM

    lol, the race card. happens. I’m going to rip van winkle out, nice seven year nap. when it’s time to start shooting everyone in the face somebody wake me up.

  18. teedraper says: Aug 16, 2014 3:27 PM

    Jimmy53,

    You people are so full if yourselves that you think I’m trolling but you know it’s the truth. You people are the weakest creed on planet earth.

    Signed,

    The Jew

    I know the lawyer was lying. …His lips were moving

  20. billybobyall says: Aug 16, 2014 11:17 PM

    Why are there under age kids drinking in a bar?
    The should have mixon & green beckham fight each other then the winner fights Rhonda Rousey!
    College schools who’s football team is the only game in the state normally beat this kind of rap. Sad.

  21. handsofsweed says: Aug 17, 2014 11:51 AM

    How incredibly disturbing and sad. Teedraper is a Jew who somehow has the same beginning seeds of hatred for another race that once led his own people into gas chambers by the millions. He literally learned nothing from the Holocaust.

    May Yaweh have mercy upon your black, rotten, festering soul.

    When will white people realize that they come from the dark melanated skin people with dominate jeans, known as Africans. You “white people” are the recessive jean people of the dominate jean people.

    Have your bloodlines traced back to their origin, not the ancestry.com stuff, I’m talking actual blood tracing and you all (all meaning everybody on earth) will find that your blood roots originated in east Africa near the Kenya, Ethiopia region.

    Can’t we all just get along.

    If you read the affidavit, it seems to read the opposite. According to the affidavit, he used a homophobic slur that started a verbal altercation that escalated to her pushing him. He then lunged at her and she slapped him. He then closed fist punched her in the face and then fled the scene.

    Once again everything is 1 sided. If the woman was didn’t feel her entitlement, this situation would have never happened. That’s the problem white people feel they are entitled to speak the n word with a in your face attitude & get away it. Like the police officer in Ferguson, Mo. Despite her pass record no charges against her, if ii was the other way around, the football player would still be suspended. So it’s a no win proposition. He did the right thing by getting an attorney to represent his best interest. White Folks hiding behind entitlement, birth right.
