Report: An arrest Warrant has been issued for Bengals RB Joe Mixon for Aggravated Menacing
Bengals running back Joe Mixon is back in the news but not for breaking tackles. According to a report from PFF’s Mike Renner, an arrest warrant for Aggravated Menacing.
Per Ohio Laws, aggravated menacing consists of “knowingly causing another person to believe that you would cause serious physical harm to their person, property, unborn child or immediate family.”
An aggravated menacing charge could result in a fine of up to $1,000, maximum jail time of up to 180 days or five years of probation.
According to reports, Mixon’s arrest stemmed from an allegation that he threatened a woman with a firearm.
Mixon has been in trouble before, when he had an incident with a parking attendant and an arrest in 2014 when he assaulted a female name Amelia Molitor near the Oklahoma campus.
This is not a very good look for Mixon who helped lead his team to the AFC Championship.
According to Local 12, the affidavit states Joel Mixon pointed a gun at the alleged victim, saying, “You should be popped in the face. I should shoot you, the police can’t get me.”
The Bengals released a statement on the matter saying, “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.”
