Ezekiel Elliott Involved In Overnight Domestic Violence Investigation

Wikipedia Commons
Elliott helped lead OSU to a national title in January 2015. He was taken in the first round of the 2016 NFL Draft by the Dallas Cowboys.

A police report shows former Ohio State star running back Ezekiel Elliott involved in a domestic violence investigation early Friday morning. No charges were filed.

The report says officers were called to West 3rd Avenue around 2:30 am Friday. Police say a woman claiming to be Elliott’s live-in girlfriend said he assaulted her as she sat behind the wheel of a parked vehicle.

Police say three witnesses who reported standing in the same parking lot, as well a witness reportedly in the car at the time, didn’t see an assault, and Elliott denied anything took place.

Police say they didn’t make any arrests because of conflicting statements and the inability to prove the two lived together, which is often required in domestic violence cases. Elliott rose to national fame as he led OSU to a national title after the 2014 regular season.

The Dallas Cowboy rookie currently has the top selling jersey in the entire NFL.

Calls to a number listed as Elliott's in the police report went unanswered, and his agent did not immediately reply to emails seeking comment.
