Ezekiel Elliott, a football player with the Dallas Cowboys, faces a lawsuit after his dogs allegedly attacked a woman cleaning his pool.
According to the allegations, the incident occurred in March as the plaintiff was attempting to clean the pool at Elliott's residence. A spokesperson for the Frisco Police Department said that animal services responded to, and investigated, the incident but did not find probable cause to pursue criminal charges against Elliott.
The plaintiff alleges that the defendant's three dogs bit her "multiple times," which caused "immense pain" and required her to receive care in the emergency room.
The pool cleaner is suing for more than $200,000. She alleges that she continues to experience mental and physical pain as a result of the dog attack. Elliott's attorney denies any negligence.
