Last week, an arrest warrant was issued for Cincinnati Bengals running back Joe Mixon, only for those charges to be dropped days later.
Details at the time were limited, but it was reported that Mixon had pointed a gun at a woman while telling her, “You should be popped in the face, I should shoot you.” Exactly when or why this happened was unknown at the time. And it was even shot down as being nothing more than a money grab by Mixon’s mom.
Now, we have more details, as TMZ has obtained a police report from the incident. And it’s quite troubling, to say the least.
According to the documents, the incident took place just one day before the Bengals’ Divisional Round playoff game against the Buffalo Bills. At roughly 12.49pm on Saturday, January 21, it was reported by a 43-year-old woman that Mixon “brandished a firearm and threatened to shoot her” as a result of a “road rage incident.”
The report from the Cincinnati Police Department, which was filed in court last week, also included Mixon’s aforementioned threat to the woman — the one where he said, “You should be popped in the face, I should shoot you. The police can’t get me.”
While chargers have been dropped for the time being, there remains a possibility that they could be re-filed in the near future after further investigation.
Just 24 hours after the incident, Mixon would go on to record 105 rushing yards and a touchdown in a 27-10 victory at Buffalo’s Highmark Stadium. One week later, he and his Cincinnati Bengals would suffer a season-ending defeat at the hands of the Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC Championship Game.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS?
