Ezekiel Elliott will not be facing charges for an incident at the Electric Daisy Festival following charges filed by a 19-year-old security guard back in May. The complainant decided to pursue charges against the Dallas Cowboys running back after the NFL did not hand down any penalties to the 24-year-old star.

Authorities were tasked last month to gather evidence tied up to the EDC incident when Kyle Johnson went on to try and press charges. But based on police documents, they opted not to move forward and close the case, TMZ Sports reported.

Now, fresh reports have surfaced from the camp of Elliott baring the demands made by the 19-year-old complainant. It turns out he was demanding $500,000 from the NFL star which the team described as an extortion attempt.  Johnson and his father sent a large list of demands just days after the initial incident, TMZ Sports revealed in a separate report.

Aside from the $500,000, they also wanted a public apology, a joint press conference, $25,000 for Johnson’s junior college football team, multiple tickets to both Cowboys and Ohio State games and a “meet and greet” with Dallas owner Jerry Jones and his son, Stephen Jones.

Elliott did apologize for the incident after the incident which the Cowboys star said Johnson accepted. Both even took a picture together. It seems things went awry when the NFL did not penalize Elliott thus the filing of charges that went for naught.

With that out of the way, the more pressing matter for Elliott right now is his contract with the Cowboys. Together with Dak Prescott and Amari Cooper, the trio has yet to come to an agreement with Dallas for the coming season. This is despite team owner Jerry Jones saying that all three will be offered contracts in line with the top-five salaries of their respective positions. As of this writing, there is no significant progress on new deals for the three Dallas stars.  

Regardless, most feel that it will only be a matter of time before both sides will eventually settle the issue. Elliott is allegedly keeping himself in shape over in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico and will be ready by Week 1.
