A woman accused Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott assaulting her early Friday morning, according to a police report obtained by TMZ Sports.
The woman, who claimed to be an ex-girlfriend of Elliott, told Columbus, Ohio, police the NFL rookie assaulted her while “while sitting in the driver’s seat of her parked vehicle,” per the report.
Elliott reportedly denied these allegations, however, and wasn’t arrested after four witnesses — including one who was in the car at the time of the incident — said they did not see any assault take place. The 21-year-old Ohio State product still could be charged at a later date.
“I can assure you (the allegations) are not true,” a representative for Elliott told TMZ.
Dallas selected Elliott fourth overall in the 2016 NFL Draft. Cowboys rookies are scheduled to report to training camp in Oxnard, Calif., on July 29.
