Ezekiel Elliott Claims Las Vegas Security Guard Tried To Extort Him For $500K
Earlier this year we learned that Dallas Cowboys star Ezekiel Elliott, 24, was detained during a Las Vegas festival after allegedly shoving a security guard. He now says that same guard tried to extort him for $500,000.
Additionally, in police documents obtained by TMZ Sports, the running back’s attorney claims that after the May altercation at Electric Daisy Carnival they were emailed a full list of demands via 19-year-old Kyle Johnson and his father Kelly Johnson.
Among the 14 items listed to keep quiet was: a public apology from Elliot; a press conference with Elliott and Kyle; $500,000 in cash; $25,000 for Kyle’s junior college football team; and signed jerseys from Elliott, Amari Cooper and Dak Prescott.
In addition, the list also included tickets to Cowboys games (home and away); Ohio Stage games; and meet and greet with Jerry Jones and his son.
While Kyle and his father filed a criminal complaint against the football player, prosecutors ceased further movement.
