An arrest warrant has been issued in Ohio’s Hamilton County for Bengals running back Joe Mixon on a charge of aggravated menacing.
The complaint was filed Thursday in Ohio’s Hamilton County. The Bengals said they are aware of the charges against Mixon.
“The club is investigating the situation and will not comment further at this time,” a team spokesperson said in a statement Thursday.
Mixon allegedly pointed a gun at an individual on Jan. 21 and said the person should be “popped in the face.” The warrant states the incident occurred on the intersection of Walnut Street and East Third Street in downtown Cincinnati, one day before the Bengals defeated the Buffalo Bills in the divisional round of the AFC playoffs.
