Oklahoma high court rules Joe Mixon video can be made public

The Oklahoma Supreme Court has ruled that a surveillance video of Oklahoma running back Joe Mixon punching a female student should be made public.

Justices ruled in favor of the Oklahoma Association of Broadcasters, which had sued for access to the video under the Oklahoma Open Records Act. The Oklahoma Supreme Court found that the video should be an open record because a judge watched it during a court hearing last year.

Mixon was suspended from the Sooners football team for the 2014 season and was charged with a misdemeanor after his confrontation in July 2014 with a female student at a Norman, Oklahoma, sandwich shop.

Mixon rushed for 753 yards and seven touchdowns last season.
