Meanwhile, she lies motionless on the floor of the restaurant. He later admitted he was guilty and apologized for hitting the girl.
The running back wanted his attorneys to make the video public. They also released the following statement:
“Mr. Mixon asked us to once again say he is sorry for the way he acted that night. He has publicly apologized to Ms. Molitor, her friends, his family, teammates, and the University. He hopes that his voluntary release of these recordings will help put this matter to rest.”
Because the footage is hard to watch, Mixon hopes it will help the court go easy on him. That one punch fractured the pretty girl’s face. But it also indicated that Mixon was provoked and physically pushed first.
His attorneys hope that they can use the footage to suggest that Molitor’s provocation drew their client to the edge.
Molitor filed a civil suit against Mixon. His attorney stated that she “repeatedly instigated hostile conversations.” They also maintain that he was on his way out of the café when she slapped him.
The attorneys admit that “video alone wouldn’t tell the full story.”
