KOCO-TV reporters who saw the video said the physical altercation at Pickleman’s Gourmet Cafe lasted less than five seconds. The entire encounter between Molitor and Mixon lasted less than 20 seconds.
According to a time stamp on the video, at 2:39 a.m., Molitor was inside the mostly empty restaurant.
KOCO-TV reporter Kim Passoth said Molitor appeared intoxicated, had difficulty standing and was holding onto a table before sitting down near the front of the restaurant.

Passoth said Molitor was sitting at the table with two male friends when she used her hand to motion to Mixon to come over.
When Mixon approached, one of Molitor’s friends said something to him. Molitor then turned her body toward the football player and said something to him.
Passoth said Molitor then stood up and pushed Mixon with both hands, and Passoth said Mixon thrust his body toward Molitor but did not touch her. 
Passoth said Molitor then slapped Mixon’s face, and Mixon wound his arm to the side before punching Molitor across the face.
Molitor fell to the floor, where she lay for about 40 seconds.
Passoth said Molitor was wobbly but managed to get back in her seat. Blood was rushing from her mouth.
Molitor’s friends and several other people gathered around her. One woman held a cloth against her face.
Employees remained behind the counter and could be seen on the phone. One employee told a 911 dispatcher, “Some girl just got clocked in the face. I would like to report an assault.”
Before police arrived, Molitor grabbed her phone and walked out of the camera’s view. The entire video shown to the media was less than three minutes long.
Mixon was charged with misdemeanor assault after the incident. The Pickleman’s video is now key evidence. The one punch caught on camera has already cost him an entire football season. The running back was suspended from the University of Oklahoma football team.
Police said Bob Stoops and Joe Castiglione were shown the same video while determining Mixon’s status with the team.
