The Denver Post - - SPORTS -

The at­tor­neys for Joe Mixon re­leased a surveil­lance video that shows the Soon­ers’ star run­ning back punch­ing a fe­male Oklahoma student in 2014.

The video shows Amelia Moli­tor shove Mixon at a cafe in Nor­man, Okla., 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, where she re­mained for sev­eral min­utes.

Mixon was charged with a mis­de­meanor at the time of the in­ci­dent, and the univer­sity sus­pended him for the en­tire 2014 sea­son.

The video was re­leased af­ter the Oklahoma As­so­ci­a­tion of Broad­cast­ers sued for its ac­cess, prompt­ing the Oklahoma Supreme Court to rule this month that the city of Nor­man should re­lease it. The city had un­til Dec. 26 to ei­ther re­lease the video or file an ap­peal.
