The Ezekiel Elliott situation in Dallas might have just taken another turn. According to TMZ Sports, a lawsuit has been filed against the Cowboys in Texas claiming that they conspired with Frisco police to cover up a car accident Elliott was involved in back in 2017.

The suit stems from a January 11, 2017 car crash — 4 days before the Cowboys played the Packers in an NFC Divisional Round game — when Zeke slammed a GMC Yukon into a BMW 750 driven by Ronnie Hill on his way to the Cowboys practice facility,” TMZ Sports reports.

Ronnie Hill claims that Elliott was at fault and “barreled through a red light.” He allegedly suffered “serious and permanent” injuries.

TMZ Sports notes that the Frisco Police Department put out a statement describing the incident as minor. Hill’s suit counters that, going as far to say that the Cowboys “conspired” with the local police department.

“If anyone had actually reported the impact of the accident and had Elliott been examined he would have most likely been placed in concussion protocol and out for the Dallas Cowboys upcoming playoff game,” the lawsuit claims.

This all comes with Elliott holding out of training camp. He’s also the subject of a criminal investigation stemming from an incident in Las Vegas during the offseason.

How fun.
