Johnson reportedly wanted at least 14 grievances met in order for him to remain quiet about the incident. This included $500,000 for him personally, a $25,000 donation to his junior college football team, signed memorabilia from Elliott, Dak Prescott, and Amari Cooper, as well as a public apology. Also, Johnson requested that Elliott provide “tickets to Cowboys games [both home and road], Ohio State games and a meet-and-greet with Jerry Jones and his son.”
Elliott’s legal team responded by telling Johnson and his father that their demands constitute extortion. The two parties then had a conversation that didn’t lead to a resolution. Johnson eventually took his story public and filed a legal complaint against the running back, even though documents prove that Elliott not only apologized to Johnson but he also stuck around a posed for a picture with the victim.
“I had no intention to push and/or harm or intimidate Kyle Johnson,” Elliott’s affidavit reads. “After Kyle Johnson fell and I was finished speaking with the officers nearby, I immediately apologized to Kyle and he indicated to me that he was not hurt. We gave each other a hug and he asked me to take a picture with him, which I was happy to do as there was never any intention to harm or hurt Kyle.”
I think everyone knew this guy wanted something out of this altercation.
At least he got a nice pic.
