The NFL could be looking into an incident involving Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott and an altercation that occurred at the Electric Daisy Carnival music festival in May.

Elliott was handcuffed at the festival after shoving an event staffer, a TMZ Sports report stated.

According to a report from Yahoo Sports, which cited two unidentified league sources, the league will likely review video of the Las Vegas incident to determine if Elliott violated the terms of previous suspension guidelines.

The altercation is “clearly” subject to review by Goodell under the league’s personal conduct policy, the report noted, especially considering Elliott’s previous six-game suspension at the start of the 2017 season for alleged physical abuse against an ex-girlfriend.

Cowboys' Ezekiel Elliott handcuffed after shoving music event staffer, report says The running back's attorney, Frank Salzano, said his client was detained but not formally arrested or charged in the alleged incident.

He was seen arguing with his girlfriend in a parking lot of the venue around 3 a.m. local time. Although Elliott doesn't appear put his hands on her in the cellphone video obtained by TMZ, the report noted he did allegedly block her from walking away several times which is apparently when event staffers stepped in.

After shoving one staffer to the ground, Elliott was escorted off the property, following the arrival of event security and Las Vegas Metro Police.

According to Yahoo Sports, the league could levy punishment based on "a vaguely worded determination" that "he could be subject to further discipline for additional contact with authorities."

"This latest incident could end up being a shining example of why the Cowboys and those close to Elliott remain concerned, because previous documentation tied to the running back’s last suspension could provide traction for additional discipline."

Music event staffer shoved by Ezekiel Elliott wants 'sincere' apology

Music event staffer shoved by Ezekiel Elliott wants 'sincere' apology "I wasn't hurt or anything, but just to have someone that you looked up to shove you on the ground over a metal fence?" Kyle Johnson said.

The report noted there is no immediate timeline for a review but that it would “likely” happen prior to training camp.

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones recently said he doesn't see the NFL taking any action against Elliott.

"I think that the main thing is that I don't see anything that needs supporting," Jones said, via The Dallas Morning News. "In terms of his status with us, (it) has not been impacted in any way. And frankly, I know how conscientious he has been in the offseason, and that's good enough. No, I don't see that having any consequences for us."

Jones, whose 12-season career was marked as much by controversy off the field as contributions on it, had his best years with the Bengals.
