Kneeling NFL Ingrate Michael Bennett May Get 10 Years For Assaulting Senior Citizen Woman #NFL #NFLBoycott

A warrant has been issued for the arrest of Philadelphia Eagles defensive end Michael Bennett after a grand jury indicted him on a felony charge of injury to the elderly related to an incident at NRG Stadium following Super Bowl LI, according to the office of the district attorney of Harris County, Texas.

Rusty Hardin, one of Bennett’s attorneys, told USA Today Sports that Bennett would turn himself in on Monday.

A release from the district attorney’s office states that Bennett was a spectator and in town to watch his brother, Martellus, then a player for the New England Patriots, on Feb. 5, 2017. After the game, Bennett allegedly shoved his way onto the field, where players were gathering to celebrate, according to the DA’s office. NRG security personnel, including a 66-year-old paraplegic woman, told Bennett he had to use a different entrance for field access, but the defensive end pushed through them, including the woman.

Speaking at a news conference Friday, Houston Police chief Art Acevedo said Bennett allegedly told the people he had pushed, “You all must know who I am, and I can own this m—–f—–. I’m going down to the field, whether you like it or not.”

The woman suffered a sprained shoulder, according to Acevedo. He noted that authorities are in contact with Bennett’s lawyer.

The injury to the elderly charge includes intentionally and knowingly causing bodily injury to a person 65 years or older and carries a penalty of up to 10 years in prison and a $10,000 fine.

“Mr. Bennett might think that he’s an NFL player, and at that time and place, he thinks he doesn’t have to answer to police officer. I’m proud of the fact our department took the time to investigate this thoroughly,” Acevedo said.

Acevedo said a detective did not actively start working the case until September because the police department had prioritized more serious cases. There is no video of the alleged incident, according to Acevedo.

As soon as word of former Seahawks defensive lineman Michael Bennett’s felony arrest warrant came down, critics began slamming him.

There you have it folks.. Michael Bennett. Grand Dragon of the Klan With A Tan, kneeling NFL ingrate, and perhaps the newest felon on an NFL roster.
