Police Officer Laura Meltzer told The Associated Press on Monday that the 23-year-old running back was detained briefly early Saturday during the Electric Daisy Carnival at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway.
Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott was reportedly detained at a Las Vegas music festival Saturday after he allegedly shoved a security guard to the ground.
Sometime later, the couple is seen talking to event staffers who were looking to intervene, when suddenly Zeke gets into one of their faces and says "You got something to say!?". In the video, Elliott can be seen pushing down a security guard at the 1:18 mark, then ending up in handcuffs at the 1:42 mark.
Las Vegas police officers put Elliott in handcuffs after the incident and escorted him from the scene.
Luckily for Elliott, Jerry Jones loves the man, which means this probably won't amount to anything when it's all said and done.
Elliott's attorney, Frank Salzano, told TMZ that event security was "overreacting" to an argument between Elliott and his girlfriend, and that he did nothing wrong.
"He was cuffed as a precautionary measure".
Elliott was supsended in 2017 over a domestic violence accusation and therefore is under league scrutiny for any and all incidents. He was then released with no charges.
Elliott returned to North Texas in time to host his Football Pro Camp at the Ford Center in Frisco on Sunday. He previously was suspended for an off-field altercation in which he was accused of abusing his ex-girlfriend despite not being arrested or charged.
