Dallas Cowboys star running back Ezekiel Elliott has been accused of trying to "pick a fight" with a local celebrity in Las Vegas.

Elliott and some of his Dallas Cowboys' teammates spent time in Las Vegas following their season-ending loss to the Los Angeles Rams.

One of Las Vegas' biggest DJs, DJ Franzen, is accusing Elliott of trying to start a fight with him.

"Can you believe Ezekiel Elliott tried to pick a fight with me?" Franzen said in an Instagram video discovered by SportsGossip.com ... "Man, f--k the Cowboys!"

"Get the f--k up out of Vegas man," Franzen added. "You are never allowed in my section again, you little b---h."

TMZ Sports had more details, including Elliott's side of the story:

Our Zeke sources tell a different story ... claiming Franzen came over in an aggressive manner and was talking trash about the Cowboys.

One source put it this way, "He was trying to provoke Zeke."

Whoever was at fault, one thing's for sure -- don't expect these guys to be hanging out in Vegas together any time soon.

Elliott is currently at the Pro Bowl, though the star running back didn't practice today. He's expected to be at practice on Thursday.
