FRISCO, Texas – The father of running back Ezekiel Elliott issued a statement regarding his son and the recent accusations involving domestic violence with a former girlfriend.
"The reported allegations and Internet postings regarding our son are completely false. Ezekiel has done nothing wrong," Stacy Elliott said in a prepared statement. "The police have investigated this matter and eyewitnesses have verified the lack of any wrongdoing. The actual evidence in this matter clearly indicates what the real motivation was behind the police being called. We are confident that when the truth comes to light it will reveal the falsity of these claims. Ezekiel has been fully cooperative with the police and will continue to do so—along with cooperating with the NFL—moving forward."
As of Friday, Cowboys team officials were still trying to gather all of the details involving the accusations against Ezekiel Elliott, who was accused of domestic violence by a former girlfriend.
Elliott has adamantly denied the claims and reportedly saved information from the accuser to protect himself in this matter. Coincidental or not, Elliott turned 21 on Friday.
The rookie running back has been accused of an altercation in a vehicle that resulted in bruises and scratches to a woman that released the photos Friday morning.[embeddedad0]
