The big headline that should have come out Monday was Elliott’s response to the NFL’s investigation. Instead, another PR headache, involving the Cowboys’ star, arose.
Elliott was involved in an altercation at a Dallas night club the night before, and had “allegedly” punched a man in the face. He was not arrested or listed as a suspect, as Dallas PD could not verify the accusation or contact the victim.
The incident further damaged Elliott’s public image, even though no charges were filed. More troubling is the impact it might have on his possible suspension. The NFL will look into the matter further as it could factor into their current investigation.
Even more strange, was the situation involving receiver Lucky Whitehead and his pit bull, Blitz. On Monday, Whitehead made it known, via social media, his dog had been kidnapped from his home on Sunday and was being held for $20,000 ransom.
Late Monday night, Fort Worth based rapper, Boogotti Kasino ( I don’t know either), posted an expletive filled video demanding the ransom money from Whitehead. The video gained traction on social media, which helped the Cowboys’ receiver get in touch with the rapper.
Apparently, the incident was resolved early Tuesday morning, with Whitehead getting his dog back for free. Kasino later tweeted the situation was misunderstood, with the rapper just trying to get the money back that he spent on Blitz. I’m still scratching my head.
