More trouble for Ezekiel Elliott.

With the Dallas Cowboys running back already dealing with a domestic violence incident from last year (which many believe could result in a suspension) and his recent altercation at a Dallas bar on Sunday (which left a DJ with a broken nose), this is probably the last thing Elliott and the Cowboys need right now.

Reports from the Dallas Morning News‘ Valerie Wigglesworth indicate that Zeke was clocked by police in Frisco, Texas, diving 100 mph in a 70 mph zone back in April.

Elliott was traveling down the Dallas North Tollway when he was booked by officers.  The star running back was also given a warning for not having his front license plate.

The Dallas Morning News also states that Elliott’s attorney entered a no contest plea for his client, which was accepted by the court on July 5.  On July 14, Justice of the Peace W. M. “Mike” Yarbrough entered the conviction for Elliott’s misdemeanor into the records.

On Friday, an appeal bond was posted and the case was forwarded to the county court at law yesterday. They are still waiting on the court to assign a judge to the case.
