Default Michael Bennett charged with injuring an elderly paraplegic at Super Bowl LI

https://sports.yahoo.com/michael-ben...190628054.html

https://247sports.com/nfl/philadelph...ent--116606397

Quote:
Michael Bennett hasn't spoken on his indictment regarding the felony charge of injury of the elderly for injuring a 66-year-old paraplegic who was working at NRG Stadium to control access to the field at Super Bowl 51. Bennett faces up to 10 years in prison and a $10,000 fine if convicted of the charges.

Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo held a press conference discussing the indictment against Bennett Friday, just hours after the news broke (via Corey Seidman of NBC Sports Philadelphia).

"(Michael) Bennett may think because he's an NFL player and because some time has passed, he may have thought rules don't apply to him. Number 2, that he doesn't have to respect the dignity of a paraplegic woman trying to earn a living."

"He may believe he doesn't have to answer to a police officer trying to detain him." Says Bennett said "**** you" to officer trying to detain him, said "You all must know who I am, and I could own this m'f."

Acevedo also called Bennett "Morally Bankrupt" (per the Houston Chronicle) stating "it's pretty pathetic that you'd put your hands on a 66-year-old paraplegic and treat them like they don't exist."

The 66-year old woman was in a motorized wheelchair and Bennett pushed her. She strained her shoulder from the alleged incident, according to the police report. There is no video of the incident. Acevedo hopes Bennett turns himself in as quick as possible.

So why wasn't Bennett arrested on the spot? He wasn't posed as a threat, per Acevedo.

"Officer did not feel Bennett posed an additional threat by going on the field, officer made split-second decision to check on the 2 women (who were allegedy pushed) rather than apprehend Bennett."

Houston police: Michael Bennett told employees ‘I can own this motherf—’ during strange Super Bowl event


Quote:
The woman, a stadium employee, sprained a shoulder after Bennett shoved her while trying to rush the field after the game, Acevedo said. Bennett, then with the Seahawks, is a Houston native who was at the game to watch his brother, Martellus, who played with the Patriots at the time.
“He said, ‘You all must not know who I am,'” Acevedo said of Michael Bennett. “‘I could own this [expletive]. I’m going onto the field whether you like it or not.'”
The Eagles released a statement Friday afternoon: “We are aware of the situation involving Michael Bennett and are in the process of gathering more information. Because this is an ongoing legal matter, we will have no further comment at this time.”

I know when I am in charge of staffing the Super Bowl security team and looking over resumes, I put elderly paraplegics at the top of my list.

I don't think the paraplegic was a "security" guard so much as an usher/ticket taker. Dumb assignment either way though.

Facing up to 10 years for being excited and rushing a football field in celebration and the person who fell only ended up with a sprained shoulder. So somebody could go to jail for 10 years for pushing somebody? Doesn't surprise me at all, we got guys who have been rotting in jail for 20 years for smoking a joint.

Regardless of whether you think his actions should have resulted in criminal charges, Michael Bennett once again displaying what a fine upstanding member of society he is.

100 bucks says these are BS charges to "pay back" Bennett for crossing the blue line. No videotape evidence. Just another pig's "word". What a freaking joke.

Yeah, this is one of those situations where there probably weren’t many eyewitnesses who could be interviewed. Totally based off of a police officer’s word, probably never asked the elderly paraplegic who pushed her down.

You can totally see this happening though... no, it's not a felony but you just know he was a total prick and just shoved security out of the way thinking he was above the rules. **** him, maybe this can take him down a peg he sounds like a total a-hole.

I could see people pushing this for money. Money makes people do stupid things. I doubt he gets time, there isn't any real evidence (no video footage) and a grand jury indictment means zilch. Grand juries are so indictment happy they would indict a ham sandwich for murder.

Well I happen to know someone that's on the Seahawks team pretty well...won't say how I do because that will give it away.If anyone has followed my post then it would be easy to guess who the player is.Anyway he has told me for a few years Micheal is phony and only says what he does to get eyes on himself it's actually his brother that is the one that is the legit one when it comes to his "stance" and isn't phony about it.

I'm really not shocked this dude is in the news again.He wanted eyes on himself and he got them.

When’s the last time anyone heard a police chief give a press conference and call a suspect “morally bankrupt”? They don’t even do that for a mass shooter.

C'mon now..if this were a real thing they would've jumped all over him right then and there. He already had a massive target on his back. I believe he was rude or whatever but this stinks to high heaven.

Bennett's statement:

"b**** got in a ****a's way. Cain't no muh****in b**** get in a ****a's way."

It's unfortunate the League has so many ****er scumbags like Bennett and many others. Plenty of wonderful men in the League with black skin, but like African Americans in general, the 30% that are ****er scum tarnishes the rest of them.
