Dallas PD suspends investigation into alleged Ezekiel Elliott bar fight

Dallas police has suspended its investigation into an Uptown Dallas bar fight that allegedly involved Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott on Sunday night.

Police said that detectives made multiple attempts to contact the victim, but he has been unresponsive. Witnesses of the incident have also declined to come forward.

There have been conflicting reports about Elliott allegedly hitting a man at Clutch bar on Sunday. No arrests were made and no one was listed on the incident report as a suspect.

TMZ shared video of the victim on the floor with a broken nose. Daryl Ibeneme, 30, was allegedly intoxicated and couldn't remember who hit him -- but his friends told police it was Elliott.

A witness told TMZ that Ibeneme initially got into a war of words with a woman who was in Elliott's party and Elliott then became involved. A source told FOX4 one patron told police Elliott hit the man, but a friend of the victim said Elliott was not near Ibeneme when they found him on the ground.

Elliott was not at the bar when police arrived, according to TMZ. The man with the broken nose was treated by paramedics at the bar and then taken to a nearby hospital for additional care.

The NFL said on Monday it is looking into the incident.

Elliott is still waiting for the NFL to conclude a separate domestic violence investigation. That involved a former girlfriend who accused him last year in Columbus, Ohio.

Police investigated the claim and did not file charges, but Elliott is still subject to possible discipline by the NFL.

Elliott has been involved in other off the field incidents as well in the past year. He was caught on camera pulling down the top of a woman at a St. Patrick's Day block party on Greenville Ave. in March.

Elliott is fighting a speeding ticket from the spring after he was clocked going 100 miles per hour on the 70 mph Dallas North Tollway. Court records show his attorney is appealing it. He also was a passenger in a car wreck in Uptown earlier this summer.
