Ezekiel Elliot

Dallas Cowboys' Ezekiel Elliot has been suspended for 6 games following domestic violence allegations

0

The NFL suspended Dallas Cowboys' running back Ezekiel Elliot for six games on Friday following domestic violence allegations.

If Elliot does elect to appeal the decision, he has three days to do so.

The suspension is related to a series of incidents dating back to July 2016. A woman, who said she was dating Elliot, reported several domestic violence incidents that led to a police investigation.

The woman, later identified as Tiffany Thompson, reported an assault in a 9/11 call at an apartment complex in Columbus, Ohio. She claimed that the NFL star assaulted her while they were in a parked car. She also said he had become violent toward her in the days prior.

The suspension comes despite prosecutors deciding more than a year ago not to pursue the case involving Elliott's girlfriend at the time in the same city where he starred for Ohio State. The league said there was "substantial and persuasive evidence" that Elliot had physical confrontations with his ex-girlfriend.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.
