Ezekiel Elliott of the Dallas Cowboys got a pass from the NFL, escaping suspension following an incident at the Electric Daisy Carnival over the weekend. The verdict was passed on his most off-field incident by the NFL after the running back had met with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell on Tuesday.

In video footage from TMZ Sports, Elliott was seen handcuffed at the event after reportedly shoving a security guard to the ground. The 23-year-old allegedly had a disagreement with his girlfriend and eventually pushed the security guard to the ground after a confrontation. The report added that Elliot never put his hand on his girlfriend and that he just used her body to prevent her from walking away several times.

From there, things went a bit awry with the two seen arguing with event security personnel. And here is where misunderstandings set in and the reason why Elliott ended up in handcuffs – something his attorney says was mainly done to detain him.

Either way, it marks the second time that Elliott has run into trouble outside the football field. Back in 2017, he was meted a six-game suspension by the NFL for domestic violation allegations involving an ex-girlfriend, NFL.com reported. In July of the same year, he was also involved in a Dallas bar altercation but escaped any disciplinary action.

The two-time Pro Bowler later on apologized for his actions, particularly to the security guard, Kyle Johnson, who was involved. He also vowed to avoid putting himself in a similar situation in the future as he tries to adhere to the league’s personal conduct policy. The NFL determined that Elliott did not violate the said policy although it may be a fair warning for the running back to be on guard moving forward.

"I am rededicating myself to use all of the resources that the league has made available. But in the end, it is up to me and I am determined not to be in this position again," Elliott said.

Back in April, the Cowboys picked up the fifth-year option on Elliott’s rookie contract. He is set to make $3.9 million this coming NFL season and $9.1 million in his fifth year. As of this writing, there is no update on whether the running back will get a contract extension although talks are already a “work in progress,” Pro Football Talk reported.
