In Police Interview, Joe Mixon Says Molitor Hits "Like A Dude"

University of Oklahoma tailback Joe Mixon told Norman police in 2014 that “it felt like a dude hit me” when Mia Molitor slapped him inside Pickleman’s Gourmet Café and that he punched her in reaction.

“I was so shocked,” Mixon said of being slapped.

New details of the infamous incident are revealed in a video of his interview with police three days after the July 25, 2014, punch inside the Campus Corner restaurant.

Mixon also said he heard a racial slur from Molitor’s male friend, but not from Molitor, and Mixon admitted that he responded with a homophobic slur at the male friend.

The Oklahoman obtained a copy of the July 28, 2014, police interview. Mixon was accompanied by two attorneys and his mother.

“The gay dude … he called me something,” Mixon said in the video. “He was like (slur). So then I was like, you got me messed up. And then I called him a (slur). And after that, the girl, she dropped her purse, that's when she came in my face, pushed me, and then my glasses came off, and then, like, I had, like, jumped at her, like, to watch out. And then she came in my face. I put my head down. And she swung on me.

“And after that, like, I was so shocked, because she hit me so hard. It felt like a dude hit me. And after that, like, my face went boom, my reaction was just right there.” (More at The Oklahoman)
