Ezekiel Elliott accused of breaking man’s nose

Getty Images

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.

    Cowboys sure know how to pick winners, heck of a talent, seems like his short fuse is going to keep him from being great at this rate.

  3. gp265 says: Jul 17, 2017 11:26 AM

    Zeke is going to have a very short NFL career..

    On the bright side, at least he didn’t lift the mans shirt and expose his man boobs. So we are moving in the right direction

    Another high quality product of the Urban Meyer system.

    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.

  8. Fried Toast says: Jul 17, 2017 11:29 AM

    >”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.

  9. cookerduff123 says: Jul 17, 2017 11:30 AM

    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.

    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.

    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.

  75. r8dernation says: Jul 17, 2017 1:08 PM

  79. charliecharger says: Jul 17, 2017 1:19 PM

    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.

    “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.

  92. roxtar10 says: Jul 17, 2017 2:10 PM

    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.

    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?

    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.

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