Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott will meet with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell on Tuesday regarding a May incident in which he had a confrontation with a security guard at a Las Vegas music festival, ESPN reported.

Elliott reportedly had bumped the security guard to the ground, but was not arrested for the incident. Still, the running back could face punishment — whether a fine or a suspension — if Goodell finds Elliott violated the league’s personal conduct policy.

Elliott has already served a six-game suspension in his career for breaching that policy. In 2016, he was accused of domestic violence by his former girlfriend. The NFL still handed down a ban even though he was not arrested.

Speaking to reporters in May, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said he did not expect Elliott would face discipline this time around.

Elliott rushed for 1,434 yards on 304 carries last season.
