The woman who accused the first round draft pick Ezekiel Elliot of assaulting her is taking her case to the prosecutor’s office and an investigation into the incident is now underway.
Columbus police referred the case to the Columbus City Attorney’s office due to “conflicting statements” given by Elliot, the woman, and the witness after he was accused of assaulting her in a parked car early Friday morning. According to the director of the prosecution resources unit Robert Tobias the city attorney’s office is now gathering evidence as the woman, identified as Tiffany Thompson, is pursuing criminal charges.
Elliot who just turned 21 this past Friday, has denied assaulting the woman and even living with her. He has not been arrested or charged with a crime.
As of right now there are four witness, one which was in the car during the time of the alleged incident. They all said that they did not observe an assault.
The NFL is reviewing the case under it’s personal conduct policy. Elliot does not have to be charged with a crime to receive a plenty or fine by the NFL.
