With 50 days left for the 2017 NFL kickoff, Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliot is once again on the NFL’s problem radar. Currently under investigation for domestic abuse charges by his former girlfriend dating to an incident back in 2016, Ezekiel has now been accused of being involved in a bar altercation late Sunday night at Dallas bar. Dallas police department came out with a statement saying the victim was physically assaulted but could not remember who assaulted him. The vicim was hospitalized with non-life threatening injuries. No arrests were made that evening, nor were there further mention of Elliott or other suspects as of yet.
So then why is his name even being mentioned again then?
TMZ sports released a video allegedly of the incident and witnesses who recorded the video claim they witnessed Elliott and the man arguing few seconds before he was knocked down with a punch to the nose.
The Cowboys know about the situation but have yet to comment on it. This will probably be another slap on the hand and will probably only have a few days or games suspension in the season.
Police are still investigating this situation.
