CINCINNATI, Ohio (WDTN) — An aggravated menacing charge has been dismissed against Cincinnati Bengals running back Joe Mixon.

According to our partners at WLWT, the charge was dismissed at the request of the city’s prosecuting office. The office reportedly said there needed to be an additional investigation before moving forward.
