Joe Mixon could or not be in trouble after a teen was injured outside the home of the Cincinnati Bengals running back. It came after a report of shots being fired. Police entered Mixon’s home in the early morning hours of Tuesday and surrounded it with crime scene tape.
In the hours since a reporter has spoken with a neighbor in the area and stated that high school teenagers were playing a game of “NERF wars” when shots were fired at them from Mixon’s home. It is still unclear if the RB was home or if he was the one who fired the shots.
Per Mike Dardis of WLWT in Cincinnati, Mixon’s sister, Shelonda, said Mixon was not involved in the incident.
The 26-year-old Mixon has spent his entire six-year NFL career in Cincinnati after getting selected by the Bengals in the second round of the 2017 NFL draft.
It was just last month when a warrant was issued for him after it was alleged he pointed a gun at someone in downtown Cincinnati and said, “You should be popped in the face. I should shoot you; the police can’t get me.”
Police later rescinded the warrant while claiming a ‘misstep’ was made in issuing the warrant in the first place.
Mixon was a key part of the Bengals team that reached the Super Bowl in the 2021 season this past playoff run that led them to the AFC Championship game.
He could very well be released this offseason in a move that would save the Bengals almost $7.3 million against the salary cap.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
