Bengals' Joe Mixon found not guilty of aggravated menacing

CINCINNATI -- Bengals running back Joe Mixon was found not guilty of aggravated menacing, a county judge ruled Thursday.

"The standard of reasonable doubt is the highest standard that we have in our justice system, as it should be," Hamilton County judge Gwen Bender said before issuing her ruling. "After a careful of all of the evidence presented at trial, including the stipulations and the testimony presented today, I cannot say the city sustained its burden."

The state alleged Mixon pulled a gun on a woman following a road rage incident and said he should shoot her in the face, but Bender said city prosecutors failed to present enough evidence to prove the aggravated menacing charge.
