Ezekiel Elliott Handcuffed In Las Vegas For Shoving Man To Ground

Ezekiel Elliott Handcuffed In Las Vegas For Shoving Man To Ground

He didn't become violent, but at times was using his body to block her from walking away.

Dallas Cowboys star Ezekiel Elliott was handcuffed at the EDC music festival in Las Vegas over the weekend after allegedly shoving a security guard to the ground.

Cellphone video posted by celebrity website TMZ appeared to show Elliott speaking with a woman and then with several security and event staff members, including one who falls backward over a metal parking area barricade before police arrive.

The Cowboys have had discussions with Elliott's agent regarding an extension but are not fully involved in negotiations.

Moments later, the two were seen talking with event staffers when Elliott confronted one of them and yelled: 'You got something to say?'

Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.), who have completed town halls moderated by the network. In response, Fox News Senior Vice President Bill Sammon issued a statement urging the DNC to reconsider.

According to a statement from the Las Vegas Police Department, "at approximately 3 a.m. (officers) working at EDC observed from a distance an adult male, later identified as Elliott, push a security officer to the ground". It's worth noting that Elliott was punished by commissioner Roger Goodell despite never being charged, and although no formal charges were filed in this incident, the National Football League is likely to conduct its own investigation. He was then released with no charges.

Elliott's lawyer said that the employees overreacted and the running back was handcuffed as a precautionary measure.

"Security misconstrued and overreacted to the situation", Salzano told TMZ.

Elliott returned to North Texas in time to host his Football Pro Camp at the Ford Center in Frisco on Sunday.

Still, Elliott could still face discipline for violating the NFL's personal conduct policy.
