NFL Investigators View Ezekiel Elliott as ‘Public Enemy No. 1’ After Domestic Violence Accusations
Despite numerous witnesses stating that the former girlfriend of Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott was lying about domestic violence, as well as text messages that seemingly confirm those accusations, NFL investigators reportedly still view Elliott as ‘Public Enemy #1’ regarding these domestic violence allegations.
Elliott was vindicated of all charges involving an ex-girlfriend back in September, but it was later revealed she told police that Elliott not only abused her for five days in July, but also in February.
That alleged February incident is the sole issue that is keeping this investigation alive, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
“One of the sources said the league is trying to be thorough in its investigation, and Elliott is aware that the league is still gathering information.The NFL has been seeking information from the Aventura (Florida) Police Department regarding the February incident that involved Elliott and the same woman who accused him of domestic violence in July in Columbus, Ohio, according to one source.A person in Elliott’s camp said he recently was informed that, with the incidents in Florida and Ohio under investigation, the Cowboys running back is now viewed by NFL investigators as “Public Enemy No. 1.”The source said the NFL wants to make sure that there are zero mistakes the way there were in its investigation of former Ravens running back Ray Rice, and it is trying to be as thorough as possible.”
