Elliott, however, can then be seen walking away saying, I didnt do anything.A short time later, Las Vegas police are seen in the video putting Elliott into cuffs and walking him away from the area.Las Vegas police told NBC 5 Monday that at about 3 a.m. that officers, from a distance, saw an adult male later identified as Elliott, push a guard to the ground. The officers approached and placed him in handcuffs while they investigated the incident.

Las Vegas police said Elliott could have faced a charge of misdemeanor battery.According to NBCs Pro Football Talk, Elliotts attorney Frank Salzano confirmed Elliott was not arrested and that the cuffs were removed moments later.Security misconstrued and overreacted to the situation, Salzano said.

Cohen Claims Trump Lawyer Shaped False Statement to Congress It was one of those goals where youre like, No, no, no, no. Yes So itll be funny to watch on film and Jack will have to stand up for his one-handed goal and stick-side high shot but were really happy it went in, teammate, Jackson Morrill, said. Its a great play by him.Yale lost its regular season meeting with Penn in triple overtime and they lost to the Quakers in the Ivy League championship by one goal. 3 Handwritten Wills Found in Aretha Franklins Home Now the Bulldogs play top-seeded Penn State in the national semifinals Saturday, May 25 in Philadelphia.Photo Credit: NBC Connecticut
