The Oklahoma Supreme Court ruled yesterday that surveillance video of Oklahoma running back Joe Mixon punching a female in July 2014 is public record, and that the Oklahoma Association of Broadcasters (OAB) has the right to sue to acquire the tape, according to News9.com.
In February, the Oklahoma Court of Civil Appeals ruled the tape was public record and should be released, but the Cleveland County court subsequently declared the video remain sealed for the time being. The Cleveland County Court originally ruled the video didn't need to be released in February 2015 because Mixon hadn't been arrested.

If the OAB chooses to sue and obtains the tape, everyone will get a chance to see the footage of the incident that cost Mixon a one-year deferred sentence, 100 hours of community service, and a suspension for the entire 2014 season.
Last year, Mixon rushed for 753 yards and seven touchdowns for the Big 12 champions.
