TMZ Ezekiel Elliott was involved in an incident Sunday night at Clutch Bar in Dallas, TMZ Sports has confirmed with a source directly involved in the situation. The details about what went down inside the bar are still sketchy — we’re digging. TMZ Sports spoke with multiple people at the Dallas Police Dept. — but no one seems to have a record of an incident involving the Dallas Cowboys running back. In fact, we were specifically told by a Sgt. that the only arrest in that area was for public intoxication, but it wasn’t related to Zeke. We’re also told there were off-duty DPD police officers working at Clutch late Sunday night but none of those officers filed a report detailing a bar fight or mentioning an incident with Ezekiel. There is buzz on social media that the incident is a fight and Elliott was the aggressor — but at this point, no one we’ve spoken with can confirm that. We’ve reached out to Elliott’s camp — so far, no word back.
UPDATE: Ezekiel Elliot was involved in an altercation with a bar employee, some reports say it was with a bouncer and others say it was a DJ, however Elliott was not arrested. Apparently, Ezekiel Elliott and his team are preparing a statement, which will be released shortly.
Over the weekend, it was reported that Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott is facing a two game suspension to start the 2017 NFL season due to domestic violence accusations made by a former girlfriend against him while the two were at Ohio State University, and there have been some questions about Ezekiel Elliott’s off the field behavior after and incident in which he exposed a woman’s breasts during a Saint Patrick’s Day parade. With Ezekiel Elliott’s behavior already in question, you would think that he would lay low for a while, and focus on football. Instead Elliott went to Clutch Bar in Dallas last night, where he was allegedly involved in an altercation with an employee of the establishment, which is another red flag for Elliott. Details of this altercation are still emerging, and Elliott is preparing a statement regarding the incident, keep it here for updates.
UPDATE: According to a league source, if Ezekiel Elliott is suspended, it will not be because of this incident specifically but due to cumulative incidents.
