Michael Bennett to Turn Himself in Tomorrow
Matt Finocchio - Head Writer
Newly signed defensive end, Michael Bennett, was indicted by a Texas Grand Jury Friday on a felony charge of injury of the elderly. The alleged incident took place in February 2017 at the Super Bowl in Houston where Bennett was attending as a fan (watching his brother Martellus play for the Patriots).
While attempted to get on the field to congratulate his brother after the game, Bennett was told by security officials that he could not enter the field via the entrance that he was trying to enter from.
It was at this point that Bennett allegedly pushed through the security officials, one of them being a 66-year-old paraplegic woman, who was injured in the process.
According to league officials, neither the Seahawks nor the Eagles had knowledge of the alleged incident prior to the indictment.
Earlier today, Bennett’s attorney, Rusty Harden, told USA today that Bennett plans to turn himself over to authorities tomorrow.
