Michael Bennett has been a member of the Philadelphia Eagles for less than a week, and he already has legal trouble that could catch him a suspension if the league’s past investigations have taught us anything.
A possible suspension is the least of Bennett’s worries as he’s facing a penalty of up to 10 years in prison after he was indicted by a grand jury in Texas for allegedly pushing a 66-year-old paraplegic woman following Super Bowl LI in February 2017.
TMZ Sports has more details on what happened that day and it paints a grim picture of the Eagles defensive end.
“Michael Bennett yelled “y’all must know who I am. I could own this mother f***er,” before pushing an elderly paraplegic woman and injuring her shoulder … this according to cops in Texas.
Houston PD just held a news conference to break down the Bennett incident at Super Bowl LI … where he broke through locked doors at the southwest corner of the NRG Stadium tunnels.
HPD says one of their officers witnessed Bennett push 3 stadium employees… injuring the 66-year-old who was in a heavy, motorized wheelchair. Cops say the wheelchair did not flip over, however, the woman was pushed back.”
