Ezekiel Elliott is still being investigated by the NFL for potential domestic violence incidents before he entered the league. The league has come under criticism for not thoroughly investigating past incidents, such as Ray Rice and Josh Brown, and has a renewed focus on Elliott.
According to Adam Schefter, The NFL is pursuing information from Aventura (FL) police from a February incident involving the same woman who accused Elliott of domestic violence this summer, where she accused him of pushing her against a wall. Prosecutors in Ohio declined to bring charges citing inconsistent and conflicting information, after the woman had earlier posted injuries on Instagram,
Of course, the NFL investigation should be done fairly without any presumptions or motivations beyond determining the truth. Here’s how Schefter characterized it.
A person in Elliott’s camp said he recently was informed that, with the incidents in Florida and Ohio under investigation, the Cowboys running back is now viewed by NFL investigators as “Public Enemy No. 1.”
We’ll assume that Elliott plans to “Fight the Power,” and will “Bring the Noise” today in Pittsburgh while he is still on the field.
