Ezekiel Elliott Claims Extortion After EDC Guard Presses Criminal Charges

One trip to Las Vegas nearly got the Dallas Cowboys running back suspended after he was recorded in a verbal argument with his girlfriend, which led to him confronting a security guard chest-to-chest, which made the security guard fall backwards through a metal guard rail.

"To just not have anything happen to him, the National Football League is basically saying, 'Hey, it's OK for you to go to Vegas, get obliterated, then go shove people over fences, '" EDC security guard Kyle Johnson told Marino.

Elliott was briefly handcuffed following the incident, but was not arrested.

National Football League commissioner Roger Goodell didn't suspend or fine Elliott after the two met to discuss the incident.

Johnson, 19, received an apology from Elliott following the incident, but said "it didn't seem honest at all".

Johnson initially stated that he only wanted an apology. Elliott publicly expressed regret about the situation, saying his first apology to Johnson was honest.

"I've had a lot of angry Cowboys fans threaten me over social media and that kind of thing", said Johnson.
If charged, Elliott would likely be accused of battery.

Attorneys for the Cowboys released a statement on Saturday saying Elliott is the "target of extortion". "Kyle Johnson's filing of a criminal complaint against Mr. Elliott in connection with the Las Vegas incident it the latest attempt to do so". Elliott and his legal team are contacting the proper authorities in hopes of resolving the issue.

Johnson's father, Kelly, told FOX5 that "Zeke would have been the next guy on the ground" if he was present during the incident.

The two-time National Football League rushing leader is entering his fourth season with Dallas and won't become an unrestricted free agent until 2021.
