Ezekiel Elliott won’t be charged in domestic violence incident

The Columbus Ohio City Attorney’s Office decided not to charge 21-year-old Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott in relation to an alleged domestic violence incident that occurred in July. In question is the incident involving Elliott’s ex-girlfriend, Tiffany Thompson, who authorities say provided “conflicting and inconsistent information”.

NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy said on Tuesday, September 6 that the disciplinary board is still reviewing Elliott’s case since the league can punish a player even if he is not formally charged with a crime. In a statement, Elliott’s mother, Stacy Elliott said: “I’m very relieved. I want to thank Ezekiel’s legal team for its diligence.”

Thompson filed two police reports on July 22, 2016 that said Elliott abused her while they sat in a parked car. However, four witnesses, including one who was sitting in the car with Elliott and Thompson at the time of the alleged abuse, said no abuse took place.
