Security guard will press charges against Ezekiel Elliott
The security guard who was allegedly assaulted by Ezekiel Elliott will press charges against the Dallas Cowboys running back.
Kyle Johnson was allegedly bumped and shoved over a metal railing by Elliott during an incident in Las Vegas in May. The guard said he originally sought an apology and would have been satisfied with that. He claims he changed his mind after Elliott escaped punishment from the NFL. He also deemed Elliott’s apology to be insincere.
“To not have anything happen to him, the NFL is basically saying it’s okay to go to Vegas, get obliterated and shove people over fences,” Johnson told Enzo Marino of FOX 5 Las Vegas.
Las Vegas Metropolitan Police will investigate the guard’s claims. If they deem there is enough evidence to charge Elliott, the Cowboys running back could be charged with battery.
You can judge for yourself the sincerity of Elliott’s apology, but it hasn’t been enough for Johnson. It remains to be seen whether new evidence will come to light as part of the investigation, and how the NFL would react if it did.
