According to a report from Enzo Marino of Fox 5 Las Vegas, the security guard involved in the adjustment is pressing charges against Elliott.

"The NFL is basically saying it's ok for you to go to Vegas, get obliterated and then go shove people into fences", Kyle Johnson said in an interview with KVVU-TV.

Ezekiel Elliott is still dealing with the effects of an incident from two months ago.

Elliott was briefly handcuffed following the incident, but was not arrested.

The video evidence is clear that Elliott knocked Johnson to the ground.

"Just very unsympathetic", Johnson said of Elliott's remorse.

Johnson said in May he was unsure if he would press charges and was seeking a a honest apology. "Like, "I have to do this, I'm being forced to do this, I don't want to be here right now" kind of thing". If charged, Elliott would likely be accused of battery.

"Over the course of the past several weeks, Mr. Elliott has been the target of extortion", Elliott's lawyers Scott Rosenblum and Jason Lampert said in a statement in the NFL Network.

Kyle Johnson was allegedly bumped and shoved over a metal railing by Elliott in an incident in May. Elliott and his legal team are contacting the proper authorities in hopes of resolving the issue.
