Three dogs owned by Dallas Cowboys star running back Ezekiel Elliott escaped his home and one of them, a rottweiler, bit two people sending them to the hospital according to a report from Tom Steele of the Dallas Morning News.
The rottweiler in question has been put in a 10-day quarantine and Elliot was hit with three $100 citations. No charges have been filed against Elliott as of yet but the police are still currently investigating the matter.
A dog belonging to Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott bit two people Thursday morning in Frisco, sending them to the hospital, authorities say.
Police said that Frisco Animal Services, which is a division of the police department, was called about 9:30 a.m. Thursday to the Starwood neighborhood, where Elliott lives, about three loose dogs.
The dogs were eventually corralled, but one of them — a Rottweiler — had bitten two people.
The victims were hospitalized for injuries that were not life-threatening; their conditions were not known Thursday evening. Authorities determined that the dogs belonged to Elliott, 25, and he was issued three animal-at-large citations, one for each dog. The Rottweiler was placed in a mandatory 10-day quarantine for observation.
Police said no charges have been filed but that the investigation is ongoing.
Elliott is currently being sued by a pool cleaner regarding a separate incident from last year in which she says Elliott’s dogs attacked her when she entered his residence to clean the pool. According to the lawsuit, she’s seeking between $200,000-$1 million in damages after she said she needed surgery for her arm injury and will likely be scarred for life.
Here’s a recent picture of Elliott with the dogs at his home.
