BREAKING: Ezekiel Elliott's Suspension Is Reinstated After Court Ruling
Over one year ago, Dallas Cowboys Running Back Ezekiel Elliott was accused of domestic violence towards a woman who declared Ezekiel was visiting her before his draft to the NFL. Such accusations were dismissed for lack of evidence.
Just one month after the first accusation, Ezekiel, after returning to Columbus from Dallas, was again accused of domestic violence on 5 different accounts over a six-day span. After a statement was given to police by the woman allegedly involved in the incidents, photos were also dispersed to the NFL, the accusors family, and local authorities in attempts to fully accuse Ezekiel. Photos included marks and bruises on varies parts of the accusors body that were declared to have been taken after different encounters with Mr. Elliot.
It has now been over a year since these incidents have taken places and since the start of both a criminal and league investigation into the matter. The NFL investigation determined that Elliot was to be suspended for 6 games without pay towards the start of the 2017 regular season. However, due to a temporary stay issued by the Second Circuit Court, Elliot returned to the field to play against the Chiefs during week 9. Elliot also requested an injunction pending appeal that could continue to postpone his suspension and allow him to play.
With compelling evidence (photos and statements) the three-judge panel heading the investigation released this statement today:
“Upon due consideration, it is hereby ordered that the appellant’s motion for an injunction pending appeal is denied because the appellant has failed to meet the requisite standard.”
With evidence on the table from the accuser but a shaky story to back it up, we hand the case over to you, the fans. Do you think Ezekiel Elliot should be allowed to play? Was Elliot really the culprit from various domestic violence inncidents? Or is he now a victom of a line of flase accusations. Cast your votes!
