As we passed on from our Norman Police Department sources on Friday evening, Joe Mixon met with police investigators today. While the investigation is still ongoing, and will continue to be so for several days, we've not heard anything from Joe himself, and rightfully so I might add. Mixon's attorney, Kevin Finlay, did release a statement on Monday afternoon and, as all good defense attorneys do, proclaimed the running back's innocence.
Finlay's statement is below.
"This past Friday morning Joe Mixon found himself in a situation where he was subjected to both verbal and physical attacks from a very troubled and intoxicated young woman. As a result of these physical attacks, Joe instinctually defended himself against further harm. As promised, Joe met with investigators from the Norman Police Department this afternoon. Throughout the meeting, Joe continued to be forthcoming and cooperative with their investigation. We are looking forward to a thorough investigation and are very much looking forward to the truth coming out. As we have always maintained, Joe has done nothing wrong."
