Former Ohio State star and current Dallas Cowboys rookie running back Ezekiel Elliott has been accused of domestic violence against a former girlfriend.
A woman named Tiffany Thompson, claimed to be Elliott’s former live-in girlfriend and accused the 21-year-old of assaulting her multiple times over the past week, according to police reports filed on Friday in Ohio.
Elliot, who denies assaulting the woman and says he never even lived with her, has not been arrested or charged with a crime.
According to police reports, Thompson said Elliott assaulted her while they were parked in a car early Friday morning. She also said she had pain in her right wrist and a red mark, but declined any medical attention.
ESPN reports, “Four witnesses, including one who was sitting in the car at the time of the alleged incident, told police that they did not observe an assault.”
Thompson also claims the running back had been abusing her the entire week prior to this incident by striking her “several times” and “leaving bruises on her arms.” Elliott denies all claims and told police he never touched Thompson in “a harmful manner” and that her bruises came from a bar fight.
Thompson posted photos on Instagram of Elliott’s alleged abuse, but later deleted them.
Elliott was selected No. 4 overall in this year’s draft by the Dallas Cowboys. The Cowboys are aware of all reports, but have not made an official comment on the situation.
