TMZ obtained a video of Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott getting involved in a scuffle that led to his being handcuffed early Saturday morning in Las Vegas.
According to TMZ, Elliott was with his girlfriend in the parking lot of the Electric Daisy Carnival at approximately 3:00 a.m. The two apparently had an argument and Elliott used his body to prevent her from walking away.
The women and Elliott are later seen speaking with event staffers. During the discussion, Elliott goes up to a staff and asks if they have something to say to him. As Elliott gets in the staffer’s face, he bumps chests with him, and the staff falls backwards over a metal gate.

Event security along with Las Vegas Metro Police officers come over to the scene and put Elliott in handcuffs and take him away from the area.
According to Frank Salzano, who is Elliott’s attorney, via TMZ, the Cowboys running back was released shortly thereafter and was not formally arrested or charged.
The NFL could still weigh in on the matter with discipline if they find Elliott’s actions violated the league’s personal conduct policy. The most infamous example was in 2017 when Elliott served a six-game suspension for allegations of physically abusing his ex-girlfriend. However, Elliott was involved in a Dallas night club fight in July 2017, and that led to no disciplinary action from the NFL.
