2014 Video of OU’s Joe Mixon Punching Woman After She Slaps Him Finally Released (Video)
Back in 2014, Oklahoma Sooners running back Joe Mixon was accused of punching fellow student Amelia Molitor inside a Pickleman’s sandwich shop.
Mixon walked in, had words with a group of people, and then, when the victim went to push him, he proceeded to deck her and bolt the restaurant.
His attorney had this to say about the incident:
“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,” his attorney, Blake Johnson, wrote in a letter. “He hopes that his voluntary release of these recordings will help put this matter to rest.”
Mixon is raising a number of defenses to her remaining claim — intentional infliction of emotional distress. His attorneys assert, for instance, that Molitor “by her conduct contributed in whole or in part to any claimed loss or injuries.”
Molitor “repeatedly instigated hostile conversations” with Mixon and his companions outside the cafe’s front door, his attorneys wrote in an answer to the lawsuit.
Once inside, Molitor motioned to Mixon to approach her at the table where she was standing and she then “initiated further discussion” with him, his attorneys wrote in the answer filed Tuesday. Mixon overheard Molitor saying he and other black men were trying to jump her outside, the attorneys wrote.
Mixon also heard Molitor “and/or” members of her party use racial slurs in referring to him, his attorneys wrote.
Mixon “states he turned and attempted to leave the discussion and restaurant, but … just as he did so, plaintiff lunged toward him and shoved him in the chest,” his attorneys wrote.
Mixon “states that he then made an aggressive gesture toward Plaintiff in response and verbally warned her to leave him alone.”
He states that she then placed her left hand on his chest and, with her right hand, struck him in the face, the attorneys wrote.
Everyone should keep their hands to themselves and once again as a man you have to understand that in these incidents no matter what the woman does to you, you can’t do anything back unless your life is in some sort of grave danger.”
In retrospect Mixon should have walked away, but now that it is out there, he has to own up to the responsibilities that he could have killed her with the force of that punch.”
