The video shows a 22-second exchange inside Pickleman's Restaurant where 20-year-old Amelia Molitor calls Joe Mixon over to a table where she and her friends were talking. No audio was available in the recording, but it appeared as though Mixon made a comment to Molitor's friend.

Molitor appeared angry at the comment, made a remark to Mixon, and then pushed him with two hands. Mixon could be seen lunging back at Molitor but showed restraint. Molitor then slapped him and he fired back with a punch.

Molitor fell to the ground and laid there for approximately 40 seconds before stumbling to a nearby chair.

Several patrons of the restaurant came to her aid. About a minute later she grabbed her phone and walked out of view of the camera.
