Marino added Elliott could be charged with battery if the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police find enough evidence to move forward with the case during their investigation.
One of Elliott's agents, Frank Salzano, issued a statement to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport:
"Over the course of the past several weeks, Mr. Elliott has been the target of extortion. Kyle Johnson's filing of a criminal complaint against Mr. Elliott in connection with the Las Vegas incident is the latest attempt to do so. Mr. Elliott and his team are in contact with all of the proper authorities and are fully cooperating with them in their investigations."
TMZ Sports reported Elliott was handcuffed at the EDC Music Festival on May 19 for using his body to push a security guard backward before using his forearm to knock him to the ground. He wasn't arrested or charged with any crime at the time by Las Vegas police.
After a July 2 meeting with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell, Elliott tweeted out a statement and said he apologized to Johnson:
The league announced the following day that Elliott wouldn't face discipline under the personal conduct policy.
