Cincinnati police issue arrest warrant for Bengals star Joe Mixon after he allegedly pointed a firearm at a woman and said: ‘You should be popped in the face, I should shoot you, the police can’t get me’
An arrest warrant has been issued for Cincinnati Bengals running back Joe Mixon on account of aggravated menacing, according to several reports on Thursday night.
Court documents say Mixon allegedly pointed a firearm at a woman on January 21 and said: ‘You should be popped in the face, I should shoot you, the police can’ get me.’
The Bengals said in a statement: ‘The club is aware misdemeanor charges have been raised against Joe Mixon. The club is investigating the situation and will not comment further at this time.’
If Mixon is convicted, he could face up to 180 days in jail and fined according to Ohio’s state laws.
The 26-year-old Mixon has just completed his sixth season in the NFL. The Bengals were eliminated from the playoffs on Sunday, losing 23-20 to the Kansas City Chiefs.
Mixon rushed 210 times for 814 yards and got seven touchdowns in the 2022 season.
Mixon played college football at Oklahoma and was selected by the Bengals in the 2017 draft.
In 2014 at Oklahoma, he was suspended for a season after punching a woman. He later accepted a plea deal that included probation and 100 hours community service.
In 2020, he signed a four-year contract extension with the Bengals worth $48m.
