This weekend a shocking video of Joe Mixon, our #1 running back in the NFL, was released. This video shows him punching a young girl in the face, knocking her out to the ground and breaking her jaw. With this out in the public, Mixon now feels he can bury old baggage, but a lot of people are concerned with his coaches and how they continued to let him play after what he did. Now that the video is out, how do you feel about Oklahoma’s star player still being on the field???

Days after the Oklahoma Supreme Court ruled on Dec. 6 that it should be released, surveillance video showing Joe Mixon punching fellow student Amelia Molitor was made public on Friday through the Oklahoma running back’s attorney, Blake Johnson.
In the disturbing footage from July 25, 2014, Mixon is seen knocking Molitor out after she pushes him in a restaurant. The incident resulted in Molitor suffering fractured bones in her face, and Mixon was charged with a misdemeanor (acts resulting in gross injury) and suspended for the 2014 season.
According to usatoday,
OKLAHOMA CITY — A video showing Oklahoma running back Joe Mixon punching a female student was released to the Associated Press on Friday.
The Oklahoma Supreme Court ordered the release of a video last week that the Oklahoma Association of Broadcasters had sued to obtain.
The Associated Press acquired videos showing two angles of the incident. One, which shows the altercation, is the video the OAB sued for. The other shows another angle of the incident.
The video shows Amelia Molitor shove Mixon, and the football player feint at her. She then slapped both sides of his neck before he floored her with a right hand to the face. She remained on the floor for several minutes.
Joe Mixon’s attorneys at Crowe & Dunlevy acquired the videos from Molitor’s attorneys.
“Mr. Mixon asked us to once again say he is sorry for the way he acted that night,” a statement through his attorneys said. “He has publicly apologized 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.”
