Dallas Cowboys star running back Ezekiel Elliott had an unfortunate weekend, according to a video released today by TMZ Sports.

Elliott, who's seeking a longterm contract extension by the Cowboys, was reportedly handcuffed following an incident at the EDC music festival in Las Vegas over the weekend.

The former Ohio State star running back was reportedly not arrested, but rather just detained following some confusion over what was happening.

Elliott was reportedly spotted arguing with his girlfriend before a security guard got involved.

Zeke gets in the staffer's face and uses his body to shove the guy backward until the staffer hits a metal gate -- that's when Zeke uses his forearm to shove the guy to the ground.

Zeke immediately throws his hands up and says, "I didn't do anything!"

Event security -- along with Las Vegas Metro Police Dept. officers rush over and eventually put Zeke in handcuffs and escort him away from the scene.

Elliott's attorney released the following statement to TMZ:

"Security misconstrued and overreacted to the situation," he told TMZ Sports.

"He was cuffed as a precautionary measure. He was released with no charges. He left Vegas that night and went to his [youth football camp in Dallas] on Sunday."

Elliott is coming off another stellar season with the Cowboys. He's hoping to become one of the highest paid running backs in the NFL.
