Ezekiel Elliott pulled a woman's top down at a St. Patrick's Day Parade


Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott was captured on video pulling a woman's top down during a St. Patrick's Day party in Dallas, Texas over the weekend.

One of Elliott's representatives told TMZ it was "all in good fun" and the "woman wasn't upset." The woman reportedly continued hanging out with Elliott and his friends after the parade ended. 

This incident may not do Elliott any favors, seeing as he's still under investigation for domestic violence allegations made against him last year.

Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk explained why this could be a big deal for the Dallas Cowboys running back.

"If the folks at 345 Park Avenue trying to sift through the evidence are still undecided on whether to believe Elliott or the woman who has accused him of five incident of domestic violence in a six-day period, this is the kind of thing that

could break the tie under the very low 'more likely than not' standard of evidence," Florio explained. 

He added that it could "amount to an aggravating circumstance for any violation happening in 2016, enhancing the punishment the league imposes."

Florio noted that the NFL went ahead and suspended Pittsburgh Steelers' quarterback Ben Roethlisberger despite the fact that there wasn't enough evidence to prove that he broke the law. 

"It doesn’t matter whether Elliott, the woman, the media, the fans, or anyone else believe that Elliott’s conduct crosses the line," Florio wrote. "What matters is whether the NFL believes it, and whether the NFL will do something about it."
