• Video of Joe Mixon explaining 2014 fight released

    By: Jeff Kolb


    FOX23 reached out and received video from the Norman Police Department of a 2014 interrogation of Oklahoma running back Joe Mixon.

    With his lawyers and mother by his side, Mixon tells now retired Detective David Freudiger his account of the July 28th, 2014 fight between himself and OU student Amelia Molitor.

    According to Mixon, Molitor and a male friend - both of whom he had never met before - blew cigarette smoke in his face. Mixon says teammate Mark Andrews came face to face with Molitor after that.
    Then Mixon says, Molitor went inside of Pickleman's Gourmet Cafe accusing Mixon of trying to jump her.
    "Nobody was trying to jump her," Mixon is heard saying in the video. "Nobody had a problem with her. She was just being disrespectful."
    One of Mixon's attorneys remember his conversations with Mixon and several of his teammates about Molitor. "Like they said - like she was looking for a fight," the attorney says of their description of her.
    When Mixon heard Molitor accusing him of trying to jump her, he says he went inside of the cafe. That's when the running back remembers her male friend calling him a racial slur. Mixon admits he responded with a homophobic slur. Then he says Molitor pushed and punched him.
    "She swung on me," says Mixon. "After that I was so shocked because she hit me so hard, it felt like a dude hit me. It was like boom, my reaction was just right there."
    Mixon released video last Friday of himself punching Molitor in the face. In the interrogation video, Mixon is asked by Det. Freudiger how he felt afterwards.
    "I felt hella bad," says Mixon. "I mean even though like she hit me and it hurt. It was just like the fact that me being out of character and putting myself in a stupid situation. I just thought -- thinking about the future and everything else."
