Ohio State running back Ezekiel Elliott finds himself in trouble with the law just a few days before the 2015 Fiesta Bowl. 247Sports' Ohio St, website Bucknuts reports Elliott was involved in an automobile accident on in Columbus, OH, on Saturday.
The incident took place a day before the Buckeyes left Columbus for Phoenix. Az. Elliott reportedly told Columbus police that he had lost control of the vehicle he was driving after hitting a puddle. This resulted in Elliott losing control of the vehicle as it hydroplaned.
There are conflicting reports as to whether any other vehicles were involved in the accident. Columbus station WTTE describes the incident as a "one car crash." TMZ Sports, on the other hand, reports Elliott crashed the vehicle into another vehicle, leaving the other driver with "with minor injuries"that didn't require medical attention.
Columbus police cited Elliott with driving under a suspended license, operating a vehicle without a license, and "failure to control."
Elliott was with the Buckeyes as the team flew into Phoenix on Sunday. A spokesman for Ohio St. says Elliott will not be suspended due to the incident,
