Attorneys For Joe Mixon Release Surveillance Video
Attorneys for OU football player Joe Mixon released surveillance video Friday that shows his confrontation with Amelia Molitor at a Norman restaurant in July of 2014.
Mixon's attorneys also provided a letter detailing their reasons for releasing the video today.
In the letter, attorney Blake Johnson wrote, "Mr. Mixon asked us to once again say he is sorry for the way he reacted that night. He has apologized publicly to Ms. Molitor, her friends, his family, teammates and the University. He hopes that his voluntary release of these recordings will help put this matter to rest."
The video has been at the center of multiple lawsuits, including one filed by the Oklahoma Association of Broadcasters. However, these two camera angles are not from the video sued for in OAB's open records suit.
Thursday, News 9 received new documents filed by Mixon's attorney in the United States District Court. He said Amelia Molitor instigated hostile conversations before Mixon punched her in the face, according to the documents. Also, the documents go on to say Mixon claimed Molitor and her group were using racial slurs.
The previous week, Molitor filed a motion to block the release of the assault video.
