Oklahoma Broadcasters To Take Mixon Video Request To State High Court

Posted: Updated:
TULSA, Oklahoma -

New developments in the fight to release surveillance video of University of Oklahoma football player Joe Mixon punching a female student.

On Monday morning, the Oklahoma Association of Broadcasters will file a petition with the Oklahoma Supreme Court, seeking access to that video.

It shows the OU running back hitting the woman at a Norman restaurant in July 2014.

Mixon turned himself in that August and  pleaded guilty to a gross injury misdemeanor.

Last month, a district judge ruled the video would remain sealed, saying the video is not considered public record  because Mixon was never actually arrested -- he turned himself in.

Attorney Doug Dodd, who represents the OAB, calls the technicality one that could set a dangerous precedent.

"The concern that I have is that anybody who is arrested who either has connections or money or has a lawyer prior to being arrested can avoid their records becoming public by simply turning themselves in," attorney for OAB Doug Dodd said.

After the incident, Mixon was suspended from the football team for a year and completed 100 hours of community service and underwent counseling before returning for the 2015 season where he rushed for 753 yards and seven touchdowns, helping the Sooners to a Big 12 Championship and the College Football Playoff.
