Women's group calls for National Football League to suspend Ezekiel Elliott for 'sexual assault'

The video shows a woman pointing to her breasts and then gesturing toward someone off camera, before Elliott yanks her shirt.

However, a representative for Elliott said the woman in the video was not upset about the incident and partied with him and a group of friends later in the night.

Recently, Elliott said he wasn't happy the National Football League hasn't concluded its investigation into whether he violated the personal conduct policy after an ex-girlfriend accused him of domestic violence last summer. She clearly didn't want him to be doing it, she didn't give him permission to do that. Watch the video again and watch her try to hold her shirt up as Elliot pulls it down.

But he's now subject to a little offseason scrutiny of his own, perhaps because of Ezekiel Elliott. A second video shows a second attempt to grab the woman's chest, only to have his hand slapped away.

He was under investigation in July after domestic violence allegations, but no charges were filed. The NFL has been very strict about keeping a positive public image.

No charges were brought against Elliott on any of the five complaints after the prosecutor's office determined "conflicting and inconsistent information across all incidents resulting in concern regarding the sufficiency of the evidence to support the filing of criminal charges."
There has already been a lot of discussion on social media about the incident, with some people stating that these actions alone should void Ezekiel Elliott's contract. Under the league's personal conduct policy, the NFL can still suspend a player even though they were not found guilty. If that happens, then Elliott has no one but himself to blame for putting himself in that kind of jeopardy.

"My decision today is not based on a finding that you violated [the] law", Goodell told Roethlisberger, via PFT.
