The Columbus, Ohio attorney’s office has released text messages, written statements and other documents related to the investigation of domestic violence charges against Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott.

Earlier this week, the city attorney’s office announced it will not pursue charges against Elliott because of conflicting information and insufficient evidence. The release of these documents was designed to back up the attorney’s decision.

The Dallas Morning News collected and posted many of the interviews and texts, including one in which Elliott’s accuser, Tiffany Thompson, told a friend via text message, “He showed up then yanked me out [of the car] if police ask.”

Thompson posted pictures on social media of bruises on her body. The Dallas Morning News posted interviews with witnesses, including two police officers, who saw Thompson fighting with another woman outside a nightclub before she called police and claimed that Elliott had assaulted her.

There were conflicting stories, too. In a written statement, Elliott told police that he and Thompson were “just friends” and “NEVER dated.” He also claimed in that statement that when he told Thompson the two weren’t going home together that night, “She said she was going to ruin my night.”

In Thompson’s written statement, she said she and Elliott had been staying at the same apartment and “when we pulled up, he yanked my arm and dragged me out of the car.”

She also wrote in her statement that she and Elliott had been dating for a year and a half and said at another time he “picked me up by my neck and threw me around.” Another witness provided a sworn affidavit that said he never saw Elliott “come into physical contact” with Thompson that night.

    It’s a shame some women can get away with fabricated stories. They don’t understand the damage done, on both sides.

    If she’s lying, she ought to be charged.

    Yeah, her’s. False accusers always seem to skate. Maybe if just once one of them was nailed to the wall in at least as high profile a fashion as the accusations were handled there would be less of them. The woman that accused Jay Bromley of sexual assault was never charged either.

    I hope no other emails that were not directly relevant were not released. If the DA do so that is a cheap shot.

    what an idiot that said it should have at least gone to trial.

    So someone can just make up stuff…accuse anyone …no real proof or evidence..and get a trial…and more publicity..

    She should be prosecuted

    I don’t mean to detract from your point, but Crocodiles survived the Cretaceous–Paleogene extinction event and have remained almost genetically identical to their ancestors dating back 85 million years. Essentially meaning that Crocodiles not only lived alongside Dinosaurs for 19 million years, but they are also genetically closely related to avian creatures, meaning modern Crocodiles are literally Dinosaurs.

    Meaning not all Dinosaurs went extinct, they still live to this day!!!

    Not only that, but although I cannot confirm scientifically, but I have a theory that Demarcus Ware also pre-dates the Cretaceous–Paleogene extinction event, and he LIT up Cam Newton tonight. Meaning multiple species of Dinosaurs are thriving to this day!

    HORRAY FOR FOOTBALL!

    Some of you people are really something. No matter what facts you are presented to the contrary, once you’ve made up your mind about someone’s guilt, you refuse to believe anything else. Hope you never serve on a jury.

    Oh so very close. Dinosaurs do live today, but not in the form of crocodiles (who are nonetheless closely related). Birds are a living group of theropod dinosaurs. So, that chicken on your grill… dinosaur for dinner. That egg on your McMuffin… baby dinosaur.

    IFLS.
