Greg Hardy Coke Arrest Video 'He's a Cowboys Player, Don't Stir Anything Up'

3/22/2017 12:55 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

TMZ Sports has obtained the Greg Hardy cocaine arrest video which shows cops warning each other that he's a big, strong, Dallas Cowboys player ... so "we have to not stir anything up."

Hardy was arrested in Dallas back in September after officers found cocaine in his wallet during a routine traffic stop.

In the video, Hardy is with a female passenger and is extremely polite to the officers. The officers are also acting carefully. One whispers to another, "He's very big and fit."

FYI, Hardy is 6'4", 280.

When the cops find a purple baggy filled with coke in Hardy's wallet (which was in his car), his explanation is bizarre.

"I just got a job, I play football. I was at a party. I got drunk. Literally last night. I was at a mixer with NFL guys trying to do an interview. Like I said, I don’t know what happened between me and him, he could’ve slipped stuff in my pocket. Some people offered me some stuff. I literally don’t know what is in that. Whatever it is. I haven’t even seen it. I thought that I had nothing in the car."

He added, "I just came from a date. I was just trying to get a date in before I go and try to get a job to play ball."

So, two things ...

1) Hardy is convinced someone connected to the NFL planted drugs on him.

2) At the time, Hardy (a free agent) was convinced he was going to sign with a new team. That never came to fruition. He didn't play in 2016.

As for the arrest, Hardy eventually struck a plea deal and got 2 years probation.

Ezekiel Elliott Yacht Party Searched By Coast Guard

EXCLUSIVE

Update_Graphic_Bar

5:15 PM PT -- Elliott's attorney tells TMZ Sports the Coast Guard boarded the yacht to make sure there were enough life jackets onboard. He says no citations were issued, and the party continued.

Update_Graphic_Bar_Grey_Gray

Ezekiel Elliott had his good time temporarily ruined again this week ... only now it was by the U.S. Coast Guard during a rager yacht party in Miami. 

Ezekiel was partying with friends and a gaggle of chicks Saturday on a yacht called No Rules II, when a Coast Guard cruiser pulled up. We're told the yacht had docked minutes before.

Eyewitnesses tell us 2 guards boarded the yacht and conducted a 20-minute search on-board. We're told once the search was complete, the guards went back to their vessel and took off. 

Unclear what they were looking for, or why they approached Ezekiel and co. A rep for the Coast Guard tells us they're checking ... but he believes it was probably a safety check to make sure the boat and the guests were in compliance with maritime safety protocol.

Also important to note ... the yacht did not belong to Ezekiel. Sources tell us it belongs to a guy who rents 'em out to celebs and other rich folks. Ezekiel was just there for the ride.

0319-ezekiel-elliott-coast-guard-boat-TMZ-03Either way, it's been a bad week for the star NFL player. You'll recall ... he caught a lot of heat for forcefully exposing a woman's breast during a St. Paddy's parade. Now this.  

Ex-Cowboys Linebacker Zeke's Not a Completely Terrible Person

3/16/2017 1:33 PM PDT
Breaking News

0316-carpenter-elliot-getty-01Sounds like former Dallas Cowboys linebacker Bobby Carpenter is conflicted on how he feels about Ezekiel Elliott as a person. 

On one hand, Carpenter says he absolutely condemns the boob-grabbing stunt ... and on the other, he's personally witnessed Zeke acting like a good dude. 

Here's Bobby's statement:

"I don't endorse Zeke's behavior of grabbing women and pulling their shirts down. It's unprofessional at best and illegal at its worst."

"However on the Buckeye Cruise he got mobbed for pictures and didn't take everyone during his leisure time, but during the 4 hour autograph signing he was polite and engaging with nearly 800 people."

"I know it to be true because I was at the table beside of him. He smiled and kissed babies."

Our takeaway, Carpenter wants to defend Zeke ... but he knows it's dicey. 

Meanwhile, Chris Spielman could not have been more clear ... he's sick and tired of Elliott's stupid antics. 

NFL Great Blasts Ezekiel Elliott 'Insane to Justify His Behavior'

3/16/2017 12:20 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Detroit Lions legend Chris Spielman says he's sick and tired of people making excuses for Ezekiel Elliott -- claiming his shirt-pulling stunt was disgusting and wrong, period. 

Spielman -- who like Zeke, played his college ball at Ohio State -- says the running back needs to grow up already and start making better decisions off the field. 

"I want people to stop saying he's a 'young man,'" Spielman said ... "There comes a point in time when we all know right from wrong. At what point is it okay to pull some woman's shirt down in public?"

"He is bringing this upon himself. Nobody is bringing this upon him. And he's not young. He is of the age where he knows right from wrong, so lets stop with the young card, I can't stand it. There are no more young cards."

"It's never okay to pull somebody's shirt down. That's insane to even justify that behavior. It's crazy."

According to the police report obtained by TMZ Sports, Jackson was being patted down by security on his way into the bar when they found a loaded Glock 9mm handgun inside of a purse-like bag around his neck. 

Security took the gun -- but Alvarez allegedly ran upstairs into the bar. Officials say he was tracked down and arrested.

We previously spoke with Ezekiel's rep who says the Cowboys RB did provide information to police but was NEVER accused of any wrongdoing. 

Jackson has been charged with felony illegal gun possession in a liquor establishment and faces up to 5 years in prison. He's due in court later Wednesday.

Tony Romo Trolled By EA Sports Only Way You'll See The Superbowl ... Is On Madden

0117_tony_romo_madden_gettyHere's the definition of kicking a Cowboy while he's down ...

EA Sports -- the company that makes Madden Football -- just trolled the hell out of Tony Romo, basically saying the only way Romo will ever reach the Super Bowl is in the game.

It went down on Twitter when NBC Sports tweeted out a story about Cowboys owner Jerry Jones saying he thinks Romo will one day play in a Super Bowl (lol).

EA Sports was quick with the zinger.

EXCLUSIVE

0116-ezekiel-elliott-and-mom-twitterEzekiel Elliott wasn't sulking over the Cowboys heart-wrenching loss to the Packers on Sunday night ... he was PUMPED about the team's future ... Zeke's mom tells TMZ Sports.

We talked to Dawn Elliott, Zeke's mom, who says she was impressed with her son's optimism during a post-game dinner with Dak Prescott and his fam at Nick & Sam's steakhouse in Dallas.

Dawn says Zeke obviously wasn't happy with the L, but he wasn't totally crushed either ... 'cause he flat-out believes the Cowboys have a bright future.

"Zeke said the chemistry is great, and he thinks everyone is going to stick together. He thinks everyone will come back."

"They're young. They're looking forward. God willing everyone stays healthy. They'll be back."

As for people dumping on the Boys for failing to notch a playoff victory after their 13-3 season ... Dawn thinks that's nonsense.

"Good grief, the season wasn't a waste. You had 2 rookies and they won 13 games."

Solid point.
