Despite seemingly the entire world taking turns at attacking Ruby Gobert for his reckless mocking of the coronavirus, not all athletes have learned to be careful during quarantine. According to TMZ, Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott hosted a 30-person birthday party for a close friend, and the event was also attended by his teammate, running back Ezekiel Elliott.

The party reportedly garnered a police complaint, though Prosper PD — where Prescott’s home is located — told TMZ that they were not able to verify a party in progress. Photos obtained by TMZ seem to show a catered party in full swing, though the website is relying on sources to estimate the 30 person number. There was also apparently a smaller dinner later in the night, which would seemingly not violate the guidelines set by Texas Governor Greg Abbott, which state that there should be no gatherings over 10 people.

As noted in the TMZ report, this is not the first time during quarantine that Prescott has come under fire for breaking social distancing guidelines. He previously came under fire earlier this month for attending workouts with former teammate Dez Bryant, who is trying to get back into the NFL after a two year absence from the field. The workouts violated Texas’s requirements that people stay home and that they not work out at gyms; the pair, alongside others, worked out at A+D1 Training in Dallas in one of the workouts.
