is reporting that Oklahoma freshman running back Joe Mixon has been suspended from all activities with the football team for the entire season.
Mixon was charged Friday with misdemeanor assault stemming from an alleged incident in which he was accused of punching a woman in the face.
"As the university has demonstrated in the past, we are committed to winning the right way," athletic director Joe Castiglione and coach Bob Stoops said in a joint statement. "As an example to others, OU sets the highest possible standards for its student-athletes, coaches and staff."
Mixon will be allowed to take classes and remain eligible for financial aid if he meets certain conditions.
The alleged report states that Amelia Rae Molitor, a 20-year-old Oklahoma student from Euless, Texas, told police that Mixon punched her and broke four bones in her face.
According to Mixon's attorney, his client did nothing wrong and was protecting himself "from a very intoxicated and troubled young woman."
