Cincinnati Bengals running back Joe Mixon has had some run-ins with the law in the past. And, it appears he may be in trouble again.

Recently, he was in trouble with the law due to brandishing a weapon at a woman. This comes after his infamous incident in college where he punched a woman in the face at a restaurant over an argument.

But, early Tuesday morning, reports broke that police were outside Joe Mixon’s house.

Here are more details, courtesy of Pro Football Talk.

Sheriff’s Deputies in Hamilton County, Ohio, entered the home of Bengals running back Joe Mixon early Tuesday morning after responding to a “shots fired” call, but no arrests were made.

Fox 19 in Cincinnati reports that a juvenile was taken to the hospital with minor injuries.

The report says deputies initially responded to a report of shots fired at about 8:30 p.m. on Monday. During the night, deputies put crime scene tape around the house. At about 11:30 p.m., deputies were seen banging on Mixon’s door and telling the homeowner to come out. At about 1:30 a.m., a law enforcement officer arrived with an envelope of documents, and shortly after deputies entered the house and were seen searching with flashlights. The crime scene tape was taken down around 3:20 a.m. and deputies left without making an arrest.

UPDATE: Shots Fired After ‘NERF Wars’

The latest update on the developing story comes from a neighbor. They say shots were fired when high school teens in the are were playing a ‘NERF Wars’ game outside of the home next door.

It’s too early to speculate on if, and to what degree, Mixon is involved. But, this is another strike against the running back, who has a $12 million cap hit next year and seems to be a prime candidate to be cut this offseason.
