A surveillance video that shows Oklahoma running back Joe Mixon punching a female student have surfaced. The episode occurred at 2:39 a.m. on July 25, 2014 and led to the suspension of the football player. However, the video hadn’t been published until now.
Amelia Molitor suffered four fractured face bones after being hit at a sandwich shop near a university campus. Mixon was suspended for the 2014 season and charged with a crime.
“Mr. Mixon asked us to once again say he is sorry for the way he reacted that night. He has apologized publicly to Ms. Molitor, her friends, his family, teammates and the University. He hopes that his voluntary release of these recordings will help put this matter to rest,” Mixon’s attorney wrote in a letter.
Mixon originally defended himself accusing Molitor and her friends of using racial slurs in referring to him and of attacking first. She responded that she was trying to end a heated discussion he had initiated.
