Over the weekend, Ezekiel Elliott was present in Las Vegas for the EDC music festival, but things would turn from a good time to a very bad one when he ended up in handcuffs.
The Dallas Cowboys running back was seen on camera pursuing and arguing with his girlfriend.
At the 1:12-mark of the video, Elliott is confronted by an event staffer and asks him, “Do you have something to say?” before getting in his face, and giving him a forearm nudge.
TMZ would soon reach out to attorney who had this to say:
We spoke with Zeke’s attorney, Frank Salzano, who says Elliott was released shortly after our video ends and he was not formally arrested or charged with a crime. Salzano says Elliott was just having a normal disagreement with his girlfriend and blames event security for “overreacting.”
“Security misconstrued and overreacted to the situation,” Salzano tells TMZ Sports. “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.”
This story is still developing and it will be interesting to see how the league handles this.
