There is a warrant out for the arrest of Bengals running back Joe Mixon, according to multiple reports.

Mike Renner of Pro Football Focus first reported that there is a warrant out for the arrest of the star on one count of aggravated menacing. Local news affiliate WKRC added that Mixon is accused of pointing a gun at a woman in Cincinnati.

“You should be popped in the face. I should shoot you now,” Mixon allegedly told the woman. “The police can’t get me.”

Mixon was selected in the second round by the Bengals in the 2017 NFL Draft and has played six seasons with the team. This past season, he carried the ball 210 times for 814 yards and had seven touchdowns in the regular season. He had a combined 39 carries for 163 yards and a touchdown in the team’s three postseason games.

Mixon is two years into a four-year, $48 million contract.

“The club is aware misdemeanor charges have been raised against Joe Mixon,” the Bengals said in a statement, per ESPN. “The club is investigating the situation and will not comment further at this time.”

In 2017, Mixon reached a civil settlement with a woman that he punched in the face as a recruit at the University of Oklahoma. Mixon was suspended for the entire 2014 college season as a result of the incident.
