Let’s check in on the Dallas Cowboys.
Huh… Seems like Ezekiel Elliott had an eventful weekend.
The running back shoved a security guard at the EDC music festival in Las Vegas, leading to a handcuffing and detainment.
…the NFL star’s attorney says Zeke was NOT formally arrested (only detained) and claims the whole thing is much ado about nothing.
Here’s the deal … the Dallas Cowboys superstar running back had been spotted in the parking lot at the Electric Daisy Carnival around 3 AM on Saturday morning arguing with his girlfriend.
Zeke never puts his hands on the woman but he uses his body to block her from walking away several times during the argument.
We spoke with Zeke’s attorney, Frank Salzano, who says Elliott was released shortly after our video ends and he was not formally arrested or charged with a crime.
Salzano says Elliott was just having a normal discussion with his girlfriend and blames event security for “overreacting.”
You be the judge, after the jump:
Doesn’t look like a big deal to me. I was honestly distracted by the fact that his girlfriend’s ass is hanging out.
More from TMZ:
Even without an official arrest, Elliott could face discipline from the NFL if they find his actions violated the league’s personal conduct policy.
Remember, the league had investigated Zeke in 2017 over allegations he physically abusedan ex-girlfriend — and even though he wasn’t arrested, the league believed there was enough evidence to warrant a 6-game suspension.
Zeke has always maintained he did not attack the accuser in that situation.
HOW BOUT THEM COWBOYS?!?!?!
Birds fans spotted him in the airport –
