Dallas Cowboys star Ezekiel Elliott is being sued after a pool cleaner claimed she was attacked by Elliott’s dogs, according to TMZ.
Elliott, 24, is being sued after the woman said she was ambushed by Elliott’s dogs during a pool cleanup in March. The woman said Elliott’s Rottweiler attacked first, dragging the woman by the arm. Elliott’s two bulldogs then bit the woman’s legs, according to court documents.
The woman went to the emergency room after the attack. Two weeks later, she underwent surgery on her forearm, where Elliott’s Rottweiler allegedly bit the woman. The woman said it was not the first time that Elliott’s dogs attacked someone from the pool cleaning company. TMZ is reportedly seeking more than $ 200,000, but less than $ 1 million in damages, according to TMZ.
Frisco police confirmed to TMZ that they responded to an incident at Elliott’s home on the date of the alleged attack. Police said no criminal charges were filed.
Elliott’s attorney said Elliott was not “negligent” with his dogs and that he plans to fight the lawsuit.
Elliott spoke about the upcoming NFL season in an interview with USA Today on Wednesday. He also spoke about his battle with the coronavirus. Elliott tested positive in June. He was not happy that the news was made public. Elliott is the highest-profile player in the NFL who reveals positive proof.
