New information has surfaced regarding the bar fight involving Cowboys star running back, Ezekiel Elliott early Monday morning at a Dallas night club. Nkemakola Ibeneme, known as “DTrain” was punched in the face and suffered a broken nose, although he was unable to identify who assaulted him. In the initial police reports, no names were mentioned and there was no arrest made.

While the details of the events are still being investigated, there have been reports from people at the bar that have claimed Zeke was the person delivering the punch. New information, however, indicate that Elliott wasn’t the person who assaulted Ibeneme.

A bouncer from Wichita Falls, Michael Huffman, who was in the bar has a different view of the events, stating while Ibeneme was the instigator of the fight, Elliott wasn’t the guy who hit him.

“It didn't go down like that,” said Huffman, who said he had a good view becuase he was close to Elliott hoping to get a selfie. “Everybody is saying that but he didn't throw the punch...Zeke was just standing there arms folded chilling feeling the crowd. Then I seen DJ getting loud toward the vicinity of Zeke and then I see an overhand right come over the back of Zeke shoulder that landed square in DTrain’s face and he went to sleep. He didn't even see it. Then the crowd circled and dispersed. I’m surprised a whole video hasn’t been released yet.” - Ft Worth Star Telegram

The facts of this ordeal will become more apparent as more information is collected. Cowboys fans are holding their collective breath as we wish for the best with this incident, and this new information is something to be hopeful about.
