Ezekiel Elliott handcuffed after shoving security guard at music festival
Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott was detained at a music festival this weekend after pushing a security guard to the ground.
In a video obtained by TMZ Sports, Elliott is engaged in an argument with his girlfriend in which he blocks her from walking away multiple times. Event staff for EDC Las Vegas then gets involved and Elliott confronts one of them, pushing him backward into a metal gate and then onto the ground.
After promptly saying, “I didn’t do anything,” with his hands up, Elliott is handcuffed by police on scene.
Elliott’s attorney, Frank Salzano, told TMZ that Elliott was released soon thereafter and not formally arrested or charged.
“Security misconstrued and overreacted to the situation,” Salzano told TMZ. “He was cuffed as a precautionary measure. He was released with no charges. He left Vegas that night and went to his [youth football camp in Dallas] on Sunday.”
The NFL suspended Elliott for six games in 2017 after allegations of physical abuse toward his then-girlfriend despite a lack of arrest. Whether the league will take action now is in the hands of Roger Goodell.
