A pool cleaner claims he required surgery and will likely have lifelong scars after Ezekiel ElliottThe dogs attacked her violently in March … and now she is suing the NFL star.
But Zeke’s lawyer tells us that the NFL star flatly denies the allegations and is now seeking a legal war.
Everything is explained in the new court documents, obtained by TMZ Sports, in which a woman says she went to clean Elliott’s pool at her home in Frisco, TX on March 11 … when she was “ambushed” by her 3 dogs: a Rottweiler and two bulldogs.
In the documents, the woman claims that the Rottweiler bit her arm and dragged her … before the two bulldogs began attacking her legs.
The woman says the dogs bit her several times … and after she was able to free herself from the animals, she went straight to the emergency room “in immense pain.”
She claims the injuries were so serious … 2 weeks later, she required surgery to repair the damage caused by Rottweiler’s bite to her forearm.
In the lawsuit, the woman says she still has problems with her surgically repaired arm … and says she constantly suffers from mental and physical pain from the attack.
She is asking for more than $ 200,000 in the Dallas Cowboys superstar lawsuit … but less than $ 1 million.
The woman also claims that this was not the first time Elliott’s dogs attacked a pool cleaner … she alleges that around December 2019, the Rottweiler bit another person who worked for her company.
We contacted the Frisco Police Department about the allegations … and a spokesperson said the animal services responded to an incident at Elliott’s home on March 11, but the spokesperson says no criminal charges were filed.
As for Zeke, his lawyer. Frank Salzano He tells us that his client did nothing wrong and said … “Ezekiel was in no way negligent in relation to the alleged incident and intends to vigorously defend the lawsuit.”
Elliott has not tried to hide his infatuation with his dogs … he has created a Instagram page for all three, and he even has his Rottweiler, Ace, tattooed on his forearm.
In fact, Zeke showed all three dogs on a Twitch broadcast this week … by kissing the camera.
By the way, if this all sounds familiar … it’s because he’s kind of like Elliott’s teammate, Dak Prescott, had to deal with accusations that his dogs violently attacked someone in February 2019.
