According to multiple reports, Philadelphia Eagles Defensive End Michael Bennett was charged with a felony, for assaulting an elderly woman at Super Bowl LI. Harris Country Grand Jury in Texas issued an indictment today and a warrant for Bennett's arrest. The 66-year-old woman is reportedly a paraplegic who was working as an employee for NRG Stadium and controlling access to the field. The Harris County Grand Jury said, "immediately following the game, Bennett shoved his way on to the field where players were gathering to celebrate." The Seahawks and Eagles were reportedly not aware of the incident. Seattle traded Bennett to the Eagles for a fifth round draft pick and receiver Marcus Johnson.
According to Houston Police Chief, Art Acevedo, Bennett said at Super Bowl LI last year, "you all must not know who I am. I could own this (place)." Below, is a statement from the Police Chief and today's Houston Police Press Conference on Bennett's indictment.
