More information regarding Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott’s alleged involvement in what Dallas police called a “disturbance” at a bar on Sunday night has begun to filter out.

The police said a 30-year-old man told them he had been assaulted, but that he did not know who had done it. TMZ has a video of the alleged victim on the ground after being hit and reports the person who took the video said the man had been in a verbal altercation with a woman in Elliott’s party.

That person says Elliott than got involved and punched the man. TMZ also spoke to someone identifield as “Sgt. Williams” from the Dallas police who said that a friend of the alleged victim also identified Elliott as the assailant and a social media post from Sunday night carried the same message, with some NSFW language.

Per the TMZ report, Elliott was not at the bar when police arrived on the scene. No one has been arrested and police say they are continuing to investigate. The NFL is also looking into the incident.

  1. Oh brother!
    Whats wrong with these jerks.
    It seems as some should be kept under lock and key except for the games and practices when they can be unlocked.
    Too many PED’s that effect the brain.

  2. >”Zeke is going to have a very short NFL career..”

    On the contrary, he’ll be fine. He’s GOOD. “GOOD” trumps trouble every day of the week in the NFL.

    Now, if he had the skills of someone like Manziel and did these sorts of things, THEN you could say his career was going to be short.

  3. Say what you will about the Cowboys. Either way, I’m sure most of us can agree that their culture is at least consistent. Oh, and classless and trashy.

  4. There’s definitely going to be a civil suit coming if he broke a man’s nose. I would suspend him until that was resolved.

    It will not pass the smell test.

    Probably not but it does have the not so subtle stench of eau de cowgirl all over it.

  6. He’s already ahead of Maurice Clarett in all statistical categories . . . well, all NFL statistics anyway.

  7. Ladue, Missouri Burroughs product that has been given the silver spoon treatment ever since he excelled at sports. Now in the NFL he can’t handle himself properly in real life situations. A perfect fit for the Cowboys and the Goddell era.

  8. Word has it the NFL office just added another server to keep track of all the misdeeds of Cowboys players.

  9. Someone just got a winning lottery ticket…and someone needs to stop “keeping it real”.

    I don’t care if you or one of your crew got disrespected…Just walk away.

  10. It won’t be long before this guy is broke and out out of football.

    I don’t agree with the people that blame this on Urban Meyer or the Cowboys. It seems to me that Ezekiel Elliot is to blame.

  11. It takes a special kind of stupid to jeopardize millions in potential earnings because one refuses to behave like an adult.

  12. FRIEDTOAST, aldon Smith was arguably the best pass rusher in the game and that didn’t stop him from getting suspended.

  13. Jerry will make sure that Elliott doesn’t do jail time for assault in the same way that Manziel got off the hook for the same due to his daddy’s billions.

    It depends on your definition of good.

  15. So where is the “integrity of the game” line drawn…i guess its ok for the NFL Players to go around beating people doing drugs abusing women and breaking various laws…but if a couple of PSI are off in one of the most flawed tests ever then followed up with a season of no public test results and a 4 Game suspension then i gotta believe the NFL Targeted Tom Brady

    The “Owner” appalogized and accepted the Punishment…….and they still won the SB, take a deep breath and relax….smh…..

  17. Must make Cowboys fans long for the say of the squeaky clean players of the past like Roger S. And Danny White, or even Aikman and Emmitt for that matter.

  18. Sounds like he needs to start making better decisions about what he does off-the-field.

  19. Can’t blame Anyone,Any Organization ,Any Coach or Owner..By Now he should know he’s a target , by ppl that want a payday…He’s got to be smarter with whom,where and what he’s doing,ppl will push his buttons for a payday..they already know he’s not smart enough to walk away from a bad situation…Sh#t I’d take a punch in the face for a 6 figure settlement…GROW UP Zeke..NFL..Stands for NOT FOR LONG…Be Responsible..save your money..Retire at 32 and live the American Dream !!!

  20. The Bearded Woman beater will be incarcerated in less than five years. Thank goodness he plays for the prison farm team already!

    Tell that to Josh Gordon

  22. Didn’t Darrelle Revis have a similar incident earlier in the year, when he was accused of battery, after a video surfaced? No charges were brought and no suspension from the league. The league actually wrapped that investigation up real quick, almost simultaneously with the judicial system, which opted for not filing charges.

  23. Enough is enough with this spoiled immature punk, SUSPEND HIM NOW !!!
    And I AM a cowboys fan !

    You used to be able to say that, but in today’s hyper sensitive society I feel these days are limited. Look at AP with the whole incident he had; the vikes tried a two week shelving but the public forced their hand. Outcry with impact is a new thing, and a wildcard here.

  25. Well, if he’s suspended for the first 4 games, we’ll get to see how good Dak is with an average running game behind him.

  26. Everybody needs punched in the face at least once in their life. Sunday night was one of those nights for that guy. Nothing to see here, move along….

  27. So a guy was yelling at a girl. Elliott stepped in and broke guy’s nose. Nobody died. No guns were pulled. Everyone lived to talk about it. Why is everyone getting so crazy?

  28. More than likely, the guy got what he deserved. It sounds like Elliott was coming to the rescue of a woman. I’ve been around guys at bars who couldn’t hold their liquor, and didn’t know when to stop. I’d usually bait them into hitting me first, then drop the hammer on them. Sometimes bullies need a whoopin.

  29. The Cowboys need to be held accountable for their long history of giving criminals jobs. The league can’t let Jones continue on unpunished. Start with taking away #1 picks and go from there.

  30. Well it continues to be proven true time and time again.

    YOU CAN’T FIX STUPID!

    Thanks Ron White.

    ===============================

    You forgot Dak.

  32. “So a guy was yelling at a girl. Elliott stepped in and broke guy’s nose. Nobody died. No guns were pulled. Everyone lived to talk about it. Why is everyone getting so crazy?”

    Because the legal term is assault. Because NFL players who break the law (particularly the violent offenses) tend to get a nice break from football for awhile. Because it isn’t just one complaint. The NFL isn’t done investigation the domestic abuse case against Elliott. Because the NFL frowns on guys who make their league look like its full of hair-trigger personalities with impulse control (or worse). The NFL is about controlled violence on the field, not about violence in social settings.

  33. Smart! Get it all in before the suspension has been handed down so they can roll it all up into a little two game blow off discipline: domestic violence, assault, and whatever you want to call his antics of pulling that woman’s top off (also assault).

    If the first one was two games, the second offense should be three and the third four. But no way the NFL suspends him for the better part of the season.

    That statement is almost as old as Mike Holmgren. He was the first to say it.

  35. Somehow, the notions of being an upstanding citizen and being accountable to your teammates is being lost by a lot of folks in the league these days.

  36. The guy told him that, in fact, Jordan Howard IS the superior RB………truth hurt, and he lashed out. LOL

    SMH. It’s only a bar fight and a broken nose.

    Says the guy screaming for the swat team to lock up Brady for deflating footballs which was proven in court of no evidence. At this point, how many games is Goodell going to give Elliot with back to back incidences?

    It doesn’t matter if they won the Super Bowl, Brady won the season MVP and went undefeated. It’s the principle on the “integrity” that Roger Goodell wants to implement. However, him being subjective towards certain teams is causing a lot of people to question his thoughts on “Integrity”. Just because they won the Super Bowl, does that make it any less of a problem or?

    You mean like Josh Gordon? I agree to a point, but at some point you can’t save stupid!

  41. What about do not keep drawing attention to yourself does he not understand?He has been under scrutiny since he entered the league,so much so that his family said it was a witch hunt.So what does he do,he visits a weed store..he gets a speeding ticket 100 in a 70..now accused of assault…All this while the team you play for is having players suspended weekly(or so it seems).But the DV issue that got the nfl looking at you hasn’t been resolved yet,he said she said…someones lying..so to determine who is telling the truth is something called pattern of behavior.You can scream all you want about its a money grab but wouldn’t any of us with common sense,not want the spotlight on us until the first issue was resolved?We don’t know zeke,never will.But based upon his decision making we can say we know he needs to smarten up.

  42. Hope Romo is laying off the porkchops. This guy gets suspended and Prescott’s numbers drop because of no Elliot…Jones will be on the phone calling his boy.

  43. Jordan Howard = not only the better RB, but the better man, as well.

    Too bad talent & humility don’t get all the attention that hype & stupidity do.
