After serving one year of probation, community service, counseling and football suspension, running back Joe Mixon likely thought his legal issues regarding a 2014 incident- in which he allegedly hit a woman in the face - were over.
The victim of the 2014 incident is now filing a complaint against Mixon in the U.S. District Court, seeking unspecified damages for: alleged negligence, willful and wanton misconduct and intentional infliction of emotional distress.

Even now Mixon is powerfully defended, and not just by OU. Coach Bob Stoops maintains that Mixon "was punished." Cleveland County District Judge Thad Balkman ruled in the original trial that the Joe Mixon video - which shows the incident and therefore would be the victim's most valuable weapon against Mixon - would not part of court record and will remain sealed.
Oklahoma has not offered an official comment on the lawsuit at this time.
