Was this in the script?
Can you imagine if the Bengals had beaten the Chiefs, and this came out the week before the Super Bowl? Mixon should consider himself lucky because this likely won’t be as big of a story as it would have been.
With that being said, he will have to explain why someone is accusing him of pointing a gun in their face and why he was doing it right before the Bills game.
Here are the details about his arrest warrant.
There is a warrant out for the arrest of Bengals running back Joe Mixon, according to multiple reports.
Mike Renner of Pro Football Focus first reported that there is a warrant out for the arrest of the star on one count of aggravated menacing. Local news affiliate WKRC added that Mixon is accused of pointing a gun at a woman in Cincinnati.
“You should be popped in the face. I should shoot you now,” Mixon allegedly told the woman. “The police can’t get me.”
NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero spoke to Mixon’s agent, Peter Schaffer, who claims the misdemeanor charge will be dropped Friday morning.
“It was a rush to judgement, Schaffer told NFL Network. “They’re dropping the charged first thing in the morning. I really feel that police have an obligation before they file charges — because of the damage that can be done to the person’s reputation — to do their work. They should be held to a higher standard. Because I don’t play with people’s lives.”
Mixon was selected in the second round by the Bengals in the 2017 NFL Draft and has played six seasons with the team. This past season, he carried the ball 210 times for 814 yards and had seven touchdowns in the regular season. He had a combined 39 carries for 163 yards and a touchdown in the team’s three postseason games.
Mixon better hopes they are dropping the charges.
