Ezekiel Elliott's Ex-Girlfriend Is Accusing Him Of Domestic Violence With Some Pretty Damning Photos
TMZ- Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott has been named a suspect in a domestic violence police report obtained by TMZ Sports ... but the 21-year-old has DENIED any wrongdoing and was NOT arrested.
The female accuser filed a report with the Columbus PD in Ohio Friday morning ... saying she was assaulted by Elliott -- who she claims is her former live-in boyfriend -- while sitting in the driver's seat of her parked vehicle.
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.
According to the report, cops also spoke with 4 witnesses -- but they all told cops they didn't see an assault. One of the witnesses was in the car at the time of the alleged incident.
We reached out to Elliott's camp -- one person in his agent's office told us, "I can assure you [the allegations] are not true."
Now that's how you find a loophole! Can't tarnish your career forever with a domestic abuse charge if you lay your hands on a woman before you've even started the career in question. Pretty sure that's how that works, right?
In all seriousness, this is just another unfortunate incident in a long line of stupidity that you don't want to see from professional athletes...if it's true. Others might be so inclined, but I'm not exactly putting the guy behind bars and slapping a scarlet letter on his chest just because his EX-girlfriend - who was recently cheated on - posted some eye opening pictures on Instagram. If there was going to be a time to try to squeeze a pay day out of someone that just came into a bunch of money and is likely going to leave you in the dust this would be it. Doesn't exactly seem like the strongest case when one of the witnesses - who was in the car at the time of the assault - didn't see the assault.
That doesn't mean I am standing on the highest of mountain tops proclaiming Ezekiel Elliott's innocence, but it does mean we shouldn't make any assumptions about what happened here until we get more information. Bottom line, a woman is very clearly battered and bruised and this allegation needs to be taken seriously by a league that's had it's issues with doing so in the past. I can't even begin to comprehend a top 5 pick that's been blessed with a golden opportunity in the PERFECT offense doing something this mind numbingly dumb, but if there's one thing I learned following sports it's to never trust that athletes are privy to common sense/decency. All I know is if turns out Zeke was responsible for those marks then he shouldn't have to worry about flashing his abs on a football field for a long, LONG time. The truth should eventually come out, and when it does Ezekiel Elliott better pray the only thing he's guilty of is not dumping his girlfriend before getting drafted into the NFL.
