The security guard allegedly knocked down by Ezekiel Elliott at a Las Vegas music festival earlier this month says he is still seeking a genuine apology from the Dallas Cowboys running back. Kyle Johnson, 19, told KCBS-TV in Los Angeles that he wasn’t injured in the May 19 incident that led to Elliott being detained but was disappointed by his actions. While trying to access a secure area at the festival, Elliott allegedly used his body to shove Johnson backward and he fell over a security fence. “I wasn’t hurt or anything, but just to have someone that you looked up to shove you on the ground over a metal fence?” “It’s not the biggest thing in the world, but really, [to say] nothing happened? I mean, come on.”
