NORMAN, Oklahoma - Oklahoma freshman running back Joe Mixon has is being withheld from participating in football related activities after an altercation at a sandwich shop in Norman early in the morning last Friday.

The incident started after an alleged assault at Pickleman’s Gourmet Café around 2:40 a.m. on Friday. Mixon's accuser, 20-year-old Amelia Rae Molitor, claims Mixon threw a punch so powerful it knocked her unconscious for at least 20 seconds.

Mixon was not arrested for the crime while police conducted their investigation, but on Monday he met with investigators to share his side of the story.

Kevin Finlay, the attorney for Mixon, says his client is being treated just like any other student athlete would in this situation. Finlay stated Mixon is going to be "held out of football activities pending the outcome of the investigation."

The OU athletics department released the following statement via their Twitter account, regarding this incident:

"Joe Mixon is not reporting for team activities at this time. We will continue to monitor the situation."

As far as the law enforcement side, police are still interviewing witnesses but have not been able to speak with Molitor's attorney yet, and right now, investigators are kind of at a standstill in this case.

Of course that golden piece of evidence, the surveillance video that shows what really happened, is now in the hands of the district attorney. Again, things won't move forward until police can complete their investigation.
