Ezekiel Elliott has handed down a six-game suspension by the NFL Friday for violating the league’s Personal Conduct Policy, despite being found innocent of all accusations in the court of law.
The league’s explanation? He assaulted her three times and has the photos to prove it.
A letter sent to Elliott that included these three incidents (per TMZ) as reason for the suspension:
On July 17th, the NFL says Elliott attacked Thompson at the Canvasback Lane apartments in Columbus, Ohio.
“You used physical force that caused injuries to Ms. Thompson’s arms, neck and shoulders.”
On July 19th, the NFL says there was another altercation at the Canvasback Lane apartments.
“You used physical force that caused injuries to Ms. Thompson’s face, arms, wrists and hands.”
On July 21st, the NFL says there was a 3rd incident at the Canvasback Lane apartments.
“You used physical force that caused injuries to Ms. Thompson’s face, neck, arms knee and hips.”
The league reported went to prosecutors to gain insight on why Elliott was not charged with any crime, to which they were told, “We never concluded that she was lying to us … we generally believed her for all of the incidents.”
Elliott’s ex-girlfriend took to Instagram to first disclose the reported abuse last year, posting numerous photos of various marks and bruises that she claimed were caused by the Cowboys running back.
