Witness Claims Ezekiel Elliott Did Not Assault Victim At Dallas Nightclub

A witness claims that Ezekiel Elliott did not assault the victim at Dallas nightclub Clutch on Sunday night.

Sunday night, a 30-year-old man named Nkemakola Ibeneme was reportedly assaulted in Dallas nightclub Clutch, leaving the establishment for the hospital, telling police he was punched in the nose.

Some reports suggested that Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott, who was at the nightclub but left before police arrived, had been the aggressor. That isn't true, according to one witness.

The Star-Telegram messaged with a bouncer named Michael Huffman, who says that Elliott didn't do anything.

Here's more:

“It didn’t go down like that,” said Huffman, who said he had a good view because he was close to Elliott hoping to get a selfie. “Everybody is saying that, but he didn’t throw the punch ...

“Zeke was just standing there arms folded chilling feeling the crowd. Then I seen DJ getting loud toward the vicinity of Zeke and then I see an overhand right come over the back of Zeke shoulder that landed square in DTrain’s face and he went to sleep. He didn’t even see it. Then the crowd circled and dispersed. I’m surprised a whole video hasn’t been released yet.”

Others - who claim to have been there - claim otherwise.

One thing is true - if there is video, it will be very easy to get to the bottom of what happened. If there isn't - well, we may never know.

Elliott, meanwhile, is still waiting to hear whether he'll be suspended by the league after accusations of domestic violence last year.
