For the third time in the last 14 months, Ezekiel Elliott is being sued over an alleged dog biting incident … and this time, the accuser is looking for more than $1 MILLION in damages.
In the new lawsuit, obtained by TMZ Sports, Jennifer Gampper claims she’s one of Elliott’s neighbors and says on May 20, 2021, she was attacked by one of his dogs near his Frisco, Texas-area home.
Gampper claims that while the company Perfect Synthetic Grass (which she’s also suing) was performing landscaping work at the residence … Elliott’s pooch escaped the house and attacked her.
In the suit, Gampper says she suffered severe and permanent injuries … but doesn’t get more specific.
Gampper is asking for monetary relief of over $1,000,000.
As for Elliott, his attorney, Frank Salzano tells us he’s concerned about Gampper, but that doesn’t mean he’s at fault.
“Mr. Elliott and his representatives are aware of the lawsuit filed on July 30th, which stems from a previously reported incident from May 21st of this year. As Mr. Elliott expressed at that time, he was – and remains concerned – for the party involved.”
“However, as in most disputes, there are extenuating circumstances to this matter which will impact the legal proceedings which we are not at liberty to disclose. As such, we have no further comment at this time.”
You’ll recall, cops actually investigated the incident … and said two people were injured in the alleged attack, listing Gampper as one of the “victims” in a report.
Cops added that three of the running back’s dogs escaped that day … and said they ultimately ended up issuing Elliott 3 citations.
As for the dog that allegedly bit Gampper — Zeke’s Rottweiler, Ace — a court official tells us it had a “dangerous dog hearing” after the incident, and was ultimately required to be removed from the city.
Of course, this is far from the first time Ace and the rest of Elliott’s dogs have been accused of being violent.
Remember, back in June 2020, a pool cleaner alleged in a lawsuit that Ace bit her arm and dragged her … before the 26-year-old’s two bulldogs began attacking her legs.
Court records show that case has since been closed. We reached out to the accuser’s attorney in that case for further details, but so far, no word back yet.
Elliott was also sued earlier this summer, in June, when a pet resort employee claimed Ace viciously bit him too on March 25, 2021. That case is still playing out in the court system.
Elliott hasn’t been shy about his love for his dogs over the years … hanging with them on his social media pages, and even getting a tattoo of Ace on his arm.
