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.

Zimmerman’s girlfriend likely to drop domestic violence charges against him

Prosecutors in Orlando, Florida are at a crossroads on whether to continue prosecuting George Zimmerman on domestic violence charges stemming from aggravated assault, battery, and criminal mischief, even though his girlfriend, Samantha Scheibe, is likely to drop those charges.

Schiebe allegedly wrote an affidavit that was filed by Zimmerman on Monday, December 9, requesting for the judge in the case to allow him contact with Scheibe.

Prosecutors can still build a case against Zimmerman via police reports, 911 calls, and other witness accounts, should Scheibe decide not to testify against Zimmerman.
