The NFL is likely to review Ezekiel Elliott’s incident with security at a Las Vegas music festival to determine whether he violated the terms of previous suspension guidelines, per Charles Robinson of Yahoo Sports.
The incident took place at the Electric Daisy Carnival music festival. The video, which was obtained by TMZ, is linked below:
Elliott was briefly handcuffed after he bumped a security guard. He was not charged.
Elliott served a 6-game suspension in 2017 for violating the league’s personal conduct policy. At the time, the league informed Elliott that he could face further discipline for additional contact with authorities, though “it was not spelled out what the threshold would ultimately be to trigger another personal conduct violation.”
According to Robinson, the Cowboys and people close to Elliott do not believe the language of his previous suspension determination supports discipline in light of the video footage.
The question for Goodell will be to determine whether there was “actual or threatened physical violence against another person” in the video.
There is no clear timeline on any outcomes for Elliott, but the league will “likely” review the incident prior to training camp.
