LAS VEGAS (CBSDFW.COM/AP) – Dallas Cowboys star running back Ezekiel Elliott won’t face criminal charges after scuffling with a music Elliott was handcuffed but not arrested after police said he pushed a security guard to the ground at the event last May at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

When confronted, Elliot said, "You got something to say?!"

He then shoved one staffer backward and again to the ground before throwing his hands up and declaring, "I didn't do anything!"

Elliott eventually was handcuffed and escorted off the property after event security and Las Vegas Metro Police arrived.

Elliott's attorney, Frank Salzano, told TMZ Sports that his client was detained but not formally arrested or charged.

"Security misconstrued and overreacted to the situation," Salzano said. "He was cuffed as a precautionary measure. He was released with no charges. He left Vegas that night and went to his [youth football camp in Dallas] on Sunday."

Still, Elliott could still face discipline for violating the NFL's personal conduct policy. He previously was suspended for an off-field altercation in which he was accused of abusing his ex-girlfriend despite not being arrested or charged.

The latest incident comes after Dallas last month picked up the fifth-year option on Elliott's rookie contract that will pay him $9.1 million for the 2020 season. He is set to make $3.9 million in 2019.

Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones said earlier this month that Elliott is "a guy we want to have here long term."

The veteran tight end is vouching for the loyalty of Jerry Jones and Company and predicting new deals for his fellow offensive playmakers. "Look, this organization is extremely loyal to signing their own players," Witten said Wednesday. "They believe in that. I think when it all kind of clears out, that will be the same thing. I think these players know that — Amari, Zeke, Dak — that those things get resolved because both sides want to be there. "I love how they're handling it. They're here working and they're not getting caught up in that.
