Joe Mixon’s Aggravated Menacing Charges Dropped, Case Dismissed
Former Oklahoma Sooner turned Cincinnati Bengal, Joe Mixon has found himself in an interesting situation following the Bengals’ playoff loss to the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday.
Mixon was accused of pointing a gun and making verbal threats at a victim in downtown Cincinnati the night prior to Cincinnati’s victory over the Buffalo Bills in the NFL Divisional round. However, after Hamilton County Judge, Curtis Kissinger reviewed the case, charges against Mixon have been dropped.
Hamilton County entered the process for the dismissal Friday morning after hearing Mixon’s case. The dismissal document can be seen below.
The Cincinnati Bengals released the following 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.”
Aside from legal issues, Mixon had a disappointing finale to his 2022-2023 NFL season losing in the AFC championship game to Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs. Mixon saw a major decline in production from the divisional round against Buffalo where Mixon had 20 carries for 105 yards and a score on 5.3 YPC. Against Kansas City, Mixon only had eight carries for 19 yards on an abysmal 2.4 YPC.
Mixon’s case is headed in the correct direction for Mixon and his team and barring any major changes to the situation, Joe Mixon should be ready to go for the 2023-2024 season.
