Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott was seen in a video being handcuffed by security at a music festival in Las Vegas. However, he was not arrested, according to a report by TMZ.
The festival was earlier this weekend.
CAUTION: Video contains explicit language.
Elliott’s attorney told TMZ that “security misconstrued and overreacted to the situation.”
“He was cuffed as a precautionary measure. He was released with no charges. He left Vegas that night and went to his (youth football camp in Dallas) on Sunday,” Salzano said according to TMZ.
Back in 2017, Elliott served a six-game suspension for an alleged domestic violence dispute before his rookie season. He appealed the decision in court but eventually dropped it and served the suspension in November 2017.
Elliott was never charged with a crime and he has always denied wrongdoing.
Until now, it had been considered a quiet offseason for the star running back.
Earlier this month, Elliott offered to pay for a funeral of a 14-year-old football player in St. Louis who was killed at a party.
