12:19 PM PT -- Ezekiel's father, Stacy Elliott, has issued a statement proclaiming his son's innocence.

"The reported allegations and Internet postings regarding our son are completely false. Ezekiel has done nothing wrong."

"The police have investigated this matter and eyewitnesses have verified the lack of any wrongdoing. The actual evidence in this matter clearly indicates what the real motivation was behind the police being called."

"We are confident that when the truth comes to light it will reveal the falsity of these claims. Ezekiel has been fully cooperative with the police and will continue to do so -- along with cooperating with the NFL -- moving forward."

Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott has been named a suspect in a domestic violence police report obtained by TMZ Sports ... but the 21-year-old has DENIED any wrongdoing and was NOT arrested. 

The female accuser filed a report with the Columbus PD in Ohio Friday morning ... saying she was assaulted by Elliott -- who she claims is her former live-in boyfriend -- while sitting in the driver's seat of her parked vehicle.

The officers who responded to the scene say the woman claims she had pain in her wrist and a red mark -- but declined medical treatment.

Cops contacted Elliott -- who denied striking the woman. He also said he never lived with her. 

In the report, cops list the accuser as a 20-year-old woman -- 5'5", 120 lbs. Elliott is listed at 6'0", 225 lbs.

According to the report, cops also spoke with 4 witnesses -- but they all told cops they didn't see an assault. One of the witnesses was in the car at the time of the alleged incident. 

Due to the conflicting reports, Elliott was NOT arrested -- but the accuser was referred to the prosecutor's office ... if she wants to try to press charges. 

We reached out to Elliott's camp -- one person in his agent's office told us, "I can assure you [the allegations] are not true."

10:25 PM PT -- The judge agreed with prosecutors and just ruled Suge's defense team cannot receive additional info about some of the potential witnesses but they did get several names. 

update_grey_gray_bar

Suge Knight is a very dangerous man whose criminal record stretches almost 30 years ... at least that's the point prosecutors are trying to make in order to protect witnesses from his wrath.

Suge's defense team has asked prosecutors in the murder case for their witness list -- but prosecutors say they're hesitant to release that info given Suge's lengthy criminal past. 

In legal docs, obtained by TMZ, prosecutors list numerous run-ins Suge has had with the law over the years -- including an attempted murder charge in '87, assault with a firearm in '95 and ordering a bodyguard to punch a woman. Their list went on and on.

And get this ... prosecutors say Suge's so intimidating, when new rappers come to L.A. or Vegas, they're required to pay a monetary "tax" to stay safe.

The judge will decide if prosecutors have to release the witness names. A hearing is scheduled for Friday.

'Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta' Star Cops Say Not So Innocent in 'Brutality' Video

7/21/2016 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

"Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta" star Tommie Lee was flat out lying when she claimed she was brutalized for no reason by cops -- at least according to the police report -- but she maintains she's innocent.

Tommie blasted the Georgia State Patrol Tuesday, posting a video of an officer yanking her from the backseat of a Jeep back in January and arresting her. She claimed she was a passenger and was manhandled for no reason. 

According to the police report -- obtained by TMZ -- when deputies pulled the Jeep over in the ATL area they noticed lots of movement in the vehicle.

Deputies say the guy in the driver's seat first lied, but then admitted he had switched with Tommie -- who jumped in the back.

0720-tommie-lee-alleged-injuries-instagramThat would explain why deputies wanted Tommie out of the backseat. They demanded she step out of the vehicle several times, but she held her ground. Deputies then pulled her out and hooked her up.

Cops say Tommie's eyes were watery, bloodshot and her speech was slurred, so she was booked for drunk driving, disorderly conduct and driving on an expired license.

And, for bad measure, she peed herself in the cruiser on the way to the station.

Tommie tells us the police report is BS, and insists she did nothing wrong. On the peeing ... she blames deputies for not taking her to a bathroom.

EXCLUSIVE

0713-draymond-green-01

TMZ Sports has obtained Draymond Green's mug shot -- showing the NBA star smiling while wearing an "Attack the Glass" shirt ... after allegedly hitting a Michigan State football player. 

Green was arrested on July 10th after allegedly attacking 22-year-old Jermaine Edmondson -- a senior cornerback on the MSU football team. He's 6'0", 185 lbs. Draymond is 6'7", 240 lbs.

According to the police report, obtained by TMZ Sports, at least two officers witnessed Green slapping Edmondson across the face outside of Conrad's bar in East Lansing, Michigan in the early hours of July 10th. One officer said, "The sound of the slap was very loud."

Cops say they spoke with Edmondson who says the slap was the culmination of a 2-day feud that began at another bar the night before. 

Edmondson told police he was hanging out with his girlfriend when Green bumped into him. Edmondson says he told Green, "Hey bro, you can at least say 'Excuse me.'"

Green allegedly responded by saying, "Do you know who I am?" ... and added, "I pay for n**gas like you scholarships."

Edmondson says 2 of Green's associates then began to choke him out right in the bar. He later noticed that Green's associates choked his girlfriend as well. 

Edmondson says he and his GF left the bar without contacting police -- and returned to the bar scene the next day to celebrate his birthday. 

That's when he ran into Green again -- and was confronted by the NBA star. Edmondson says he told Green that "last night wasn't cool" and Green started to poke him in the shoulder. 

Edmondson says he told Green to take his hands off him -- and that's when "boom I'm punched in my jaw."

Edmondson says he did not fight back -- and responding cops did not witness any retaliation.

Cops responded and he told officers his neck and face hurt and he did want to take further action against Green.

Cops arrested Green -- and say he was drunk ... with a .10 blood alcohol level. 

During the arrest, cops say Green ADMITTED to slapping Edmondson -- and said "he was sorry" and "wanted to speak with him to make things right."

As for Green -- he issued a statement to reporters Wednesday morning saying, "My legal team is handling it. It will be resolved really quickly."

"As a public figure, I just can't put myself in certain situations. It's something that I'll learn from and just move on."
