There are reports that Dallas Cowboy running back Ezekiel Elliott had a run in with security and police in Nevada over the weekend. Elliott was ultimately not arrested in the incident. Elliott does not put his hands on the woman, but later in the video, he appears to push an event staffer into a guardrail with his body, and the man falls down, knocking the guardrail over.

As seen in the video footage embedded below, the Cowboys running back then got chest to chest with the man, who went tumbling into a guard rail and onto the pavement. The couple was seen speaking with event staffers, when Elliott challenged one of them, "You got something to say!?" . 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.

Event security as well as Las Vegas Metro Police Dept. officers rushed over to detain Zeke with handcuffs and walk him away from the scene.

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

Salzano reiterated his comment to ESPN's Todd Archer, calling it "an overreaction by security".

Elliott returned to North Texas in time to host his Football Pro Camp at the Ford Center in Frisco on Sunday. It's worth noting this interview came BEFORE news of Elliott's problems in Las Vegas were reported. "It made me a better person".
