The woman who accused Cowboy rookie running back Ezekiel Elliott of abusing her for several days in July told Florida police of a similar allegation several months before, according to a police report.
The Ohio woman told officers who responded to Elliott's apartment Feb. 12 that he had pushed her against a wall and injured her left shoulder, Aventura police said. Aventura is in northeastern Miami-Dade County. Elliott was in Florida training for the draft.
There were no visible signs of injury and the woman declined to go to a hospital.
Elliott told authorities the woman "became angry over a social media incident and upset because she was asked to leave his apartment and go back to Ohio," according to the report obtained by USA Today.
He said that the situation escalated and that she tried to prevent him from locking himself in his room by grabbing him around the waist so he pushed her to get her off.
Elliott wasn't arrested. His attorney declined comment.
