The Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office is investigating an incident at the home of Cincinnati Bengals running back Joe Mixon. The investigation is said to be active and ongoing, but no further details have been released at this time.
According to reports, the incident occurred at Mixon’s residence in the early hours of Sunday morning. Witnesses reported hearing gunshots and seeing police cars at the scene. It is not yet clear whether Mixon was involved in the incident or if anyone was injured.
Mixon’s agent, Peter Schaffer, released a statement saying that Mixon was not at home at the time of the incident and that he is fully cooperating with the authorities. The Bengals organization also released a statement, saying that they are aware of the situation and are gathering more information.
This is not the first time that Mixon has been involved in off-field incidents. In 2014, he was suspended for a season in high school after being charged with misdemeanor assault for punching a female student. In 2017, he was drafted by the Bengals despite being caught on video punching a woman in a restaurant.
It remains to be seen what the outcome of the current investigation will be and how it will impact Mixon’s career.
