Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott and running back Ezekiel Elliott caused a wave of criticism for allegedly having a party amid national social distancing recommendations.
It was TMZ Sports that shared photos from inside the venue that happened over the weekend where the party allegedly had roughly 30 people in attendance.

Prosper Police Department reportedly investigated a complaint about the party but were unable to find anything that corroborated the allegations.
“The Prosper Police Department did respond to the Prescott residence after receiving a report of a potential ‘party,’” Scott M. Brewer, an assistant chief with the Prosper Police Department, told the Star-Telegram on Saturday night.
“The officer was unable to verify the report of a ‘party.’ Therefore, he just reminded the resident of the current CDC guidelines — to include social distancing.”
The officer also told the Star-Telegram that Prosper “continues to seek voluntary compliance with regard to all applicable local and state disaster orders. As needed, we will consider additional enforcement actions/options. As always, our primary concern is the safety and health of all our residents.”
Prescott also caught criticism for working out with Dez Bryant and posing in a photo with 3 other people as they could be seen violating social distancing guidelines by not being 6-feet away from each other.
