Oklahoma Supreme Court orders release of Joe Mixon video

The Associated Press - December 7, 2016 9:03 am

NORMAN, Okla. (AP) – The Oklahoma Supreme Court says a video that shows Oklahoma running back Joe Mixon punching a woman two years ago must be released to the public.

The high court on Tuesday sided with the Oklahoma Association of Broadcasters, which sued to force the release of the 2014 surveillance video that captured the incident. Mixon, who has apologized, was suspended for the 2014 season and later sentenced in court to a year of probation in a plea deal.

Justices found the video was part of the court record and therefore subject to public release. It wasn’t immediately clear when the video would be released.

Mixon has 1,183 yards and averages 7 yards per carry this season for the No. 7 Sooners, who face No. 17 Auburn in the Sugar Bowl.
