Ezekiel Elliot Charged with Domestic Violence
by Reylena Tsosie '21
Ezekiel Elliott was born on July 22, 1995. He was drafted by the Dallas Cowboys in the first round and the fourth overall pick in 2016. He is a running back for the Dallas Cowboys. Tiffany Thompson accused Elliot for domestic violence back from when he was in college at Ohio State University in early 2016. If he is found guilty this will be the third time in three months that the NFL has found Elliott guilty of domestic violence. Elliott was supposed to be suspended for the first six games of the 2017 season. With an interview with Erin Andrews she asked him why he didn’t take the first six games suspension. He said that’s not who he is. His suspension was supposed to begin November 5th but, a federal court in New York blocked his suspension for the fourth time this year, and he ended up playing against the Kansas City Chiefs. Luckily Elliott and the Cowboys won 28-17. During that game he made a go ahead touchdown. Elliott’s suspension started November 12th and will miss the next six games on the Cowboys schedule, starting against the Atlanta Falcons. Meanwhile, he left the United States to clear his head and to train elsewhere during the six week span. The Cowboys got crushed playing the Falcons 27-7. Without Tyron Smith, Sean Lee, and Elliott they did not play during the game. December 1st is his court date to determine the rest of his suspension. If, he is found guilty he will be suspended for four games, if otherwise he will play December 10th against the New York Giants.
