Cowboys All-Pro RB Ezekiel Elliott under investigation after dogs allegedly attack neighbors

Dallas Cowboys All-Pro running back Ezekiel Elliott has found himself in legal trouble once again because of his dogs. 

Police say Elliott's dogs got loose and bit two of his neighbors on Thursday morning, according to TMZ Sports. Officers were able to secure the dogs when they arrived at the scene and placed Elliott's Rottweiler in a mandatory 10-day quarantine after they determined it had done the biting. 

Elliott was issued three citations for "Dog at Large," and police say the biting victims were treated at local hospitals with non-life-threatening injuries.

An investigation has been launched and charges could be coming depending on the findings, TMZ Sports adds. 

This isn't the first time Elliott's dogs have allegedly attacked someone. In March 2020, the dogs allegedly attacked Elliott's pool cleaner. The Rottweiler bit and dragged the woman before the other two dogs began attacking her legs. 

The woman claimed she had to have surgery over the incident and is asking for over $200,000 from Elliott in a lawsuit.
