Joe Mixon Controversy
I a Rapoport of NFL Network says that two NFL teams are looking into an accusation that former Oklahoma Sooners running back Joe Mixon assaulted a girl when he was in high school. This accusation has since been dropped.
This report comes right after NFL.com’s Gil Brandt said on PFT Live on Wednesday that he wouldn’t pick Mixon if he was in charge of a team’s personnel department. Michael David Smith of Pro Football Talk says that Brandt said, “I just wouldn’t draft him.” “His issues began when he was in high school.”
Howard Eskin of Philadelphia’s 94 WIP said he heard that Mixon is no longer on the Eagles’ draft list because of the investigation. In a video released by the Norman, Oklahoma, Police Department in February as part of their investigation into Mixon punching Amelia Molitor in a local sandwich shop, Brady Vardeman of the Dallas Morning News wrote that Molitor’s lawyer “reads from a report from a man named Anthony Hernandez, who said Mixon punched another girl in high school and got away with it.”
In the report, Hernandez said, “I know for sure that he threw my daughter to the ground and hit her.” “When I got to the school, they were hiding him in the office. He got no punishment. Even the police came. I was led off campus like I had done something wrong. These are just the facts: he beats women.”
It was also noted Mixon denied that allegation?
After Rapoport’s report, Hernandez’s lawyer, Blake Johnson, gave Florio a statement from his client in which he said, “I don’t think Joe ever did anything to hurt my daughter,” among other things. In July 2014, Mixon punched Molitor and broke her jaw and cheekbone. He was charged with a misdemeanor and put on probation for that.
In December, a video of the incident was made public, and soon after, Mixon apologized to the public. He told the Associated Press, “It’s all my fault that we’re in this situation right now” (via USA Today). “I’m to blame for everything that happened that night. You should never hit a woman. Never. I’ll talk to anyone. Never is OK. I hope that people all over the world will learn from what I did wrong. I am ready to teach.”
