Former Freedom High football star Joe Mixon is the subject of a police investigation for alleged aggravated assault in Norman, Oklahoma, where he is a freshman on the Oklahoma team.

The alleged victim, a 20-year-old female student at the university, told The Oklahoman that Mixon punched her in the face at a deli early Friday, breaking four bones.

Kevin Finlay, an attorney in Norman, confirmed to this newspaper that he was contacted by Mixon shortly after the incident.

"We've been fully cooperating with the authorities and Joe is looking forward to the truth coming out," Finlay said.

Contrary to previous reports, Finlay said the police were not actively looking for Mixon.

"I had heard it had escalated to a manhunt, and that's absolutely not true," Finlay said. "When requested, Joe will be made available to them."
