Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott was handcuffed at the EDC Music Festival in Las Vegas this past weekend, according to TMZ. He allegedly shoved a security guard to the ground.
However, TMZ is reporting that Elliott was not arrested in the incident. He was just detained.
Before the incident, TMZ is reporting that he was at the Electric Daisy Carnival around 3 am local time on Saturday morning. He was seen at this time arguing with his girlfriend.
The story insists that Elliott never put his hands on his girlfriend. Yet, he used his body to block her from walking away from him several times during the incident.
Event staffers then come to check on the incident. Elliott then allegedly confronted one of those staffers and allegedly said, ‘You got something to say!?’
Elliott was not done. He allegedly got into the staffers face and used his body to shove the guy backwards before the guy hit the metal gate.
Then, allegedly Elliott used his forearm to shove the guy to the ground. Following this, Elliott allegedly said, ‘I didn’t do anything.’
Elliott — who was sporting a Los Angeles Lakers jersey during the incident — had more event security, along with the Las Vegas Metro Police Department Officers come over to the scene. The back was then placed in handcuffs and removed from the scene.
Frank Salzano, the Cowboys star’s attorney, claims that Elliott was released a short time later. Yet, he was not arrested or charged in the matter.
Salzano claims that the security staffers were overreacting after a disagreement with his girlfirned.
“Security misconstrued and overreacted to the situation,” Salzano said to the publication.
Despite not being charged, the NFL could look into this matter and potentially hand out discipline.
