Police: Joe Mixon said slap ‘felt like a dude hit me’ before he threw 2014 punch

Oklahoma running back Joe Mixon told police that it felt “like a dude” hit him when he was slapped by Mia Molitor in 2014 according to police video.

Molitor slapped Mixon before he punched her in the face in a Pickleman’s Cafe on July 28, 2014. Video of the incident was released last week. Molitor said she suffered multiple facial fractures after the punch and she hit her face on a table as she fell to the ground.

Mixon, a five-star recruit in the class of 2014, reached a plea deal regarding the assault charges from the incident and missed the 2014 season. Per the Oklahoman, he said a man with Molitor said a racial slur while Mixon responded with a homophobic slur in his interview with Norman police three days after the punch.

The surveillance video of Mixon’s punch was released by his attorneys last week following an Oklahoma Supreme Court ruling. The court ruled the video must be available for public consumption as it was part of the public record. The city of Norman had fought to keep the video private, but had provided media a viewing of the tape shortly after the incident. What people saw last week with their own eyes matched the descriptions provided two years ago.

The punch was the culmination of an argument that began outside the restaurant. The Oklahoman report has more details about Mixon’s interview and what he said transpired that evening.

Molitor has filed a civil suit vs. Mixon.
