Ezekiel Elliot may just be the future face of the NFL. If he keeps running into off the field incidents, however, he has no chance of doing so.
During the summer of 2016, Elliot was investigated for an alleged domestic violence incident. While charges were not pressed, the NFL is still looking into this incident to get to the bottom of it.
Sunday night, Elliot was involved in yet another incident. This time, however, it took place at a bar in Dallas. There is still very little known about what actually happened last night. While no arrests were made, the investigation is ongoing.

It has been reported that a man who Elliot was with was attacked by a woman he got in a verbal altercation with earlier. Elliot then proceeded to step in to the altercation. Both the male and female in the altercation were injured as confirmed by a TMZ sports video.
TMZ’s witness says she saw Elliott “punch the man—corroborating the story the victim’s friend told police. However, cops at the scene could not confirm Zeke was the attacker and he has not been arrested or charged with a crime.”
As of now, Elliot should be left alone by the press. There is so much grey area in this case that there is no use diving in any further unless additional police reports confirm that Elliot was in the wrong.
