Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott Accused of Domestic Violence; Girlfriend Posts Bruise Photos
A few months ago, Ezekiel Elliott was the 4th overall draft pick in the 2016 NFL draft. Now he finds himself being accused of domestic violence by his current girlfriend.
TMZ has the details on what exactly Elliott is being accused of:
“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.
Cops contacted Elliott — who denied striking the woman. He also said he never lived with her.
In the report, cops list the accuser as a 20-year-old woman — 5’5″, 120 lbs. Elliott is listed at 6’0″, 225 lbs.
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.”
Elliott was not arrested. TMZ reached out to his camp and they had this to say:
“I can assure you [the allegations] are not true.”
Elliott’s girlfriend took to Instagram and posted the following:
“Just for every women out there getting abused it’s time to put a stop to it. This has been happening to me for months and it finally got out of control to where I was picked up and thrown across the room by my arms. Thrown into walls. Being choked to where I have to gasp for breath. Bruised everywhere, mentally and physically abused. It’s not okay. So I want each and everyone one of you girls to step away now from domestic violence. You’re worth so much more. I got told it was called “tough love” I’m sorry if you love someone you don’t touch your loved ones.”
