USA Today reported Saturday that it had obtained an incident report from the Aventura, Fla., police department, resulting from officers being called to Elliott’s apartment Feb. 12 to look into an altercation. The woman, identified elsewhere as Tiffany Thompson of Dublin, Ohio, told police that an argument between her and Elliott had gotten physical and that he had hurt her left shoulder by pushing her against a wall.
The report, per USA Today, states that no signs of injury were visible on Thompson and that she declined to go to a hospital. Elliott, an Ohio State product who was in Florida to train for the NFL draft process, told police that he and Thompson had begun arguing over “over a social media incident” and that she got upset when he asked her to leave his apartment and return to Ohio.
Elliott admitted to pushing Thompson, according to the report, but only to get her off him after she grabbed him around the waist to prevent him from locking himself in his room. The report refers to him as a “friend with benefits” of Thompson, who described him in July as her “former live-in boyfriend.”
No charges were brought in either of the incidents, but the NFL can still levy its own punishment, depending on what the league makes of its investigation. In the wake of the Ray Rice scandal, the NFL toughened its domestic-violence policy, allowing for six-game suspensions for first-time offenders. The league recently came under fire for its handling of former Giants kicker Josh Brown, who was given a one-game ban despite admitting to unspecified abuse of his wife.
Elliott was recently interviewed by the NFL about the accusations from July, according to USA Today. Thompson claimed that he abused her on five separate occasions in Columbus, Ohio, between July 17 and 22, and she also posted photos of her bruised body to social media. However, in September, the Columbus city attorney’s office cited conflicting and inconsistent information in evidence while deciding not to file criminal charges.
It is unclear whether the NFL was aware of the February accusation against Elliott when it interviewed him. A spokesman for the league told USA Today that it would not comment on an ongoing probe.
