Bucs receiver Mix indicted on sex charge

BAY MINETTE, Ala. (AP) - A Baldwin County grand jury has indicted former Auburn receiver Anthony Mix on a misdemeanor sex charge.

Bay Minette police Sgt. Lester Banfield said Tuesday that Mix is charged with a misdemeanor count of contributing to the delinquency of a minor.

The NFL's Tampa Bay Buccaneers released Mix from the team Wednesday afternoon.

The indictment alleges that Mix had sex with a 15-year-old girl in January in his hometown of Bay Minette.

Banfield said because the charge is a misdemeanor, investigators will likely have to wait until Mix turns himself in or pick him up when he is in town.

Mix played for Auburn from 2002-2006 and has seen limited action with the Washington Redskins and New York Giants.
