NORMAN — Kevin Finlay, the attorney representing OU freshman running back Joe Mixon, released the following statement to the media Monday afternoon regarding the assault allegations against his client:
“This past Friday morning Joe Mixon found himself in a situation where he was subjected to both verbal and physical attacks from a very intoxicated and troubled young woman. As a result of these physical attacks, Joe instinctually defended himself against further harm.
“As promised, Joe met with investigators from the Norman Police Department this afternoon. Throughout the meeting, Joe continued to be forthcoming and cooperative with their investigation.
“We are looking forward to a thorough investigation and are very much looking forward to the truth coming out. As we have always maintained, Joe has done nothing wrong.”

His attorney can try to demonize the girl all he wants (what else would we expect?), & she may very well have provoked Mixon. That being said, video of him hitting a girl in the face hard enough to break bones (hitting her period) will trump everything else.

So the Norman police department should have hauled her in, but didn't. And so Mixon's lawyer, I'm sure, is reminding the Norman police department that they need to be careful who they arrest and who they DID not. This girl ran to Texas, evidently, to have her injuries looked at. Evidently she wasn't hurt so bad as to need medical help in Norman. The bottom line is this girl has had several "run-ins" with the law, a bench warrant out for her arrest, no time to get medical attention in Oklahoma, and is obviously wanting to sue, sue, sue.Bottom line, from this girl's history, I bet Mixon does play play for OU someday. The OU athletic department has successfully handled in the past far more difficult cases than this one. Like Dusty Dvoracek.
