Ezekiel Elliott was hit with accusations he attacked his ex-girlfriend on July 22. Now, the family of the Dallas Cowboys running back is speaking up about the alleged incident. Read the statement here.
Ezekiel Elliott, 21, was “named a suspect in a domestic violence police report” acquired by TMZ Sports. The NFL football player denied any misconduct and was not arrested. Stacy Elliott, who is the father of the football pro, issued a statement in defense of Ezekiel. The statement, obtained by TMZ is as follows:
“The reported allegations and Internet postings regarding our son are completely false. Ezekiel has done nothing wrong. The police have investigated this matter and eyewitnesses have verified the lack of any wrongdoing. The actual evidence in this matter clearly indicates what the real motivation was behind the police being called. We are confident that when the truth comes to light it will reveal the falsity of these claims. Ezekiel has been fully cooperative with the police and will continue to do so — along with cooperating with the NFL — moving forward.”
The domestic violence report, filed by a female with the Columbus PD in Ohio on the morning of July 22, claims Elliot assaulted the woman while sitting in the driver’s seat of her parked vehicle. The female, who TMZ did not identify, claimed the Cowboys player was her former live-in boyfriend. Elliot denied that he lived with her.
“The officers who responded to the scene say the woman claims she had pain in her wrist and a red mark — but declined medical treatment,” the site mentions. “In the report, cops list the accuser as a 20-year-old woman — 5’5″, 120 lbs. Elliott is listed at 6’0″, 225 lbs.”
Cops also spoke with four witnesses, the report notes. All of the onlookers told cops they did not see an assault happen. “One of the witnesses was in the car at the time of the alleged incident,” the site said from the police documents.
Elliott was not arrested as a result of conflicting reports, and the accuser was referred to the prosecutor’s office if there were further charges she wanted to pursue.
“I can assure you [the allegations] are not true,” was the response TMZ received when reaching out to Ezekiel’s camp.
