The NFL world exploded today, as Dallas Cowboys star running back Ezekiel Elliot was suspended 6 games for a violation of the NFL’s personal conduct policy.
The league laid out its case against Elliott in a letter to the Cowboys running back detailing a week of violence and terror against Tiffany Thompson that began on July 17th, 2016.
On July 17th, the NFL says Elliott attacked Thompson at the Canvasback Lane apartments in Columbus, Ohio.
“You used physical force that caused injuries to Ms. Thompson’s arms, neck and shoulders.”
On July 19th, the NFL says there was another altercation at the Canvasback Lane apartments.
“You used physical force that caused injuries to Ms. Thompson’s face, arms, wrists and hands.”
On July 21st, the NFL says there was a 3rd incident at the Canvasback Lane apartments.
“You used physical force that caused injuries to Ms. Thompson’s face, neck, arms knee and hips.”
The league says it went to prosecutors to find out why Elliott was not charged with a crime. They were told, “We never concluded that she was lying to us … we generally believed her for all of the incidents.”
Hopefully Zeke will learn a lesson from all this and come back a better person.
