Seattle Seahawks DE Michael Bennett JR Arrested

Written by: Kris Pursiainen

Around 10:30 A.M. EST, Seattle Seahawks Defensive End Michael Bennett Jr. Tweeted an image of a letter he wrote, regarding an incident on Saturday, August 26, 2017. He was in Las Vegas for the fight heard about across the world, Mayweather vs. McGregor, and while on his way back to his hotel, heard gunshots. He said that due to the noises, he ran with everyone else on the scene, but was held back by police, “for doing nothing more than simply being a black man in the wrong place at the wrong time.”

After being unnecessarily physically and verbally harassed by the officers on scene, Bennett was let go after they realized he played for the Seahawks. Bennett is now pursuing legal options, “including filing a civil rights lawsuit for the violation of my civil constitutional rights.”
