BREAKING: Bengals RB Joe Mixon Recharged In Threat Case, Summoned To Appear In Court

The Cincinnati Police have announced that Bengals running back Joe Nixon is being recharged after filing aggravated menacing charges against him on Feb. 2.

Mixon was accused of pointing a gun at a woman during a road rage incident. They were dismissed the next day so police could further investigate.

The aggravated menacing charge was refiled Friday. It is a misdemeanor of the first degree, the most serious level of misdemeanor.

Mixon has been summoned to appear in court April 19.

“This decision was reached following the discovery of new evidence during the investigative process,” a statement from Cincinnati police said. “To preserve a fair and impartial judicial process for all parties involved, no investigatory details or evidence will be disclosed outside of official court proceedings.”

The Bengals released a statement Friday morning: “The Club is aware misdemeanor charges have been raised against Joe Mixon. The Club is monitoring the situation and will not comment further at this time.”
