Friday morning, the Dallas Cowboys’ most anticipated draft pick in decades made headlines around the football world. But like many Cowboys players in recent memory, those headlines didn’t come from the football field.
Ezekiel Elliott, the 4th overall selection in the 2016 NFL draft, was accused by his girlfriend of beating her repeatedly over the course of about a week, and took to Instagram to show her body bruised & battered.
Via police reports from the incident –
“The female accuser filed a report with the Columbus PD in Ohio Friday morning … saying she was assaulted by Elliott — who she claims is her former live-in boyfriend — while sitting in the driver’s seat of her parked vehicle.
The officers who responded to the scene say the woman claims she had pain in her wrist and a red mark — but declined medical treatment.
Cops contacted Elliott — who denied striking the woman. He also said he never lived with her.
In the report, cops list the accuser as a 20-year-old woman — 5’5″, 120 lbs. Elliott is listed at 6’0″, 225 lbs.
According to the report, cops also spoke with 4 witnesses — but they all told cops they didn’t see an assault. One of the witnesses was in the car at the time of the alleged incident.”
At least four different witnesses say otherwise who were in the parking lot when the alleged incident went down.
TMZ has obtained the 911 call made by the victim to 911 operators:
Elliott has not been questions of detained by police to this point, yet has denied the allegations.
