Dak Prescott may be in hot water.
A report from TMZ sports suggests the Dallas Cowboys quarterback may have ignored social-distancing protocols and thrown a party despite “stay-at-home” orders in Texas.
According to TMZ, the two-time Pro Bowler had the cops called on him after reports that he threw a party at his house in Prosper, Texas. TMZ reported that the event included roughly 30 people and was a birthday party for one of Prescott’s friends. Insider was unable to independently verify the report.
Texas Governor Greg Abbott has mandated that gatherings have no more than 10 people.

The Prosper police department responded to the call, according to TMZ, but the department said the officer involved “was unable to verify the report of a ‘party.'”
“He just reminded the resident of the current CDC guidelines – to include social distancing,” the department told TMZ.
Prescott has been documented breaking social-distancing rules before: He joined former Dallas wide receiver Dez Bryant and others for a workout earlier this month and took a moment to pose for a photo.
