The district attorney for Harris County, Texas has indicted Eagles defensive lineman Michael Bennett on a felony charge after he reportedly injured a 66-year-old paraplegic while attempting to gain field access during Super Bowl LI, reports Adam Schefter of ESPN.com (Twitter link), who adds a warrant has been issued for Bennett’s arrest.
Bennett, of course, was traded from Seattle to Philadelphia earlier this month, but it’s unclear if the Eagles knew about the alleged Super Bowl incident. While details are sparse at the moment, Bennett could be subject to an NFL-imposed suspension regardless of the legal outcome.
Bennett, a three-time Pro Bowler, is scheduled to suit up for an Eagles defensive line that also includes Fletcher Cox, Brandon Graham, Haloti Ngata, Derek Barnett, and Chris Long. He’s under contract through 2020, although Philadelphia could exit the deal without any penalty.https://www.profootballrumors.com/2018/03/eagles-de-michael-bennett-indicted-on-felony-charge
