An arrest warrant was issued on Thursday for Bengals running back Joe Mixon in regards to an aggravated menacing account that occurred on Jan. 21, according to court records in Hamilton County in Ohio.
Mixon allegedly pointed a gun at a woman and said, “You should be popped in the face. I should shoot you now. The police can’t get me,” per Fox 19 Now in Cincinnati.
The Bengals released a statement on Thursday regarding the incident.
“The club is aware misdemeanor charges have been raised against Joe Mixon,” the statement read, via ESPN’s Ben Baby. “The club is investigating the situation and will not comment further at this time.”
The incident occurred the day before the Bengals beat the Bills in the AFC divisional-round matchup in Buffalo. Mixon previously was suspended during college after he was seen on video punching a woman in 2014 and later was charged with a misdemeanor.
