According to police documents, Elliott's lawyers emailed the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department a list of demands given to them by security guard Kyle Johnson, and his father, Kelly Johnson. Johnson reportedly wanted at least 14 grievances met in order for him to remain quiet about the incident. This included $500,000 for him personally, a $25,000 donation to his junior college football team, signed memorabilia from Elliott, Dak Prescott, and Amari Cooper, as well as a public apology. Also, Johnson requested that Elliott provide "tickets to Cowboys games [both home and road], Ohio State games and a meet-and-greet with Jerry Jones and his son."
Elliott's legal team responded by telling Johnson and his father that their demands constitute extortion. The two parties then had a conversation that didn't lead to a resolution. Johnson eventually took his story public and filed a legal complaint against the running back, even though documents prove that Elliott not only apologized to Johnson but he also stuck around a posed for a picture with the victim.
"I had no intention to push and/or harm or intimidate Kyle Johnson," Elliott's affidavit reads. "After Kyle Johnson fell and I was finished speaking with the officers nearby, I immediately apologized to Kyle and he indicated to me that he was not hurt. We gave each other a hug and he asked me to take a picture with him, which I was happy to do as there was never any intention to harm or hurt Kyle."
Once this information was provided to authorities, the LVMP decided to follow the NFL's lead and not punish Elliott for the altercation.
