Eagles’ Michael Bennett indicted on felony charge of injuring elderly woman

Eagles defensive end Michael Bennett was indicted by a grand jury today in Houston on a felony charge of injury of the elderly, stemming from an incident at last year’s Super Bowl.

Bennett, who played for the Seahawks at the time and was attending the Patriots-Falcons Super Bowl as a spectator while his brother Martellus Bennett played for the Patriots, is accused of rushing the field after the game and pushing a 66-year-old paraplegic woman who was working at the stadium.

According to the indictment, Bennett was told he couldn’t access the field from the place where he was trying to gain entry, and instead of complying he pushed the woman aside, injuring her.

There is no word on the nature of the woman’s injuries, and there has been no explanation about why it took 13 months for charges to be brought.

It is unclear whether the Seahawks and Eagles knew about the incident when Bennett was traded from Seattle to Philadelphia last week.

The NFL could discipline Bennett under the league’s personal conduct policy, regardless of the outcome of the criminal case.

  1. “I didn’t DO IT, and even if I did, I don’t have to follow YOUR instructions or rules”!
    And some folks wonder why they get rough handled by the Authority.

  2. So of the thousands of people who rush a field after the super bowl, you single michael bennett out? Pick a famous name out of the bunch? I also can’t imagine the extensive research you had to do to find out exactly who he was. SMH #moneygrab

  3. I continue to be amazed that one mother can produce the 2 worst human beings in the NFL. It’s hard enough to get 1 kid in the league let alone 2. But to have them both be the worst human beings in the league is enough to make tiki barber flabbergasted

  4. Michael Bennett Made the stupidest statement I ever heard a pro athlete ever make. He said I don’t like Matt Stafford much. He’s from Dallas, they killed the president (JFK). I hold it against him.

  5. What a complete waste of a human being. Lied about Las Vegas and injuring elderly people.

    So they singled him out from all the other guys that were shoving 66 year old parapalegics so they could pick on him?

  7. The best move the Seahawks made all offseason was getting rid of this malcontent loser (and that’s saying quite a bit considering they finally dumped the worst offensive coordinator in the league). Still waiting for this liars apology to the LVPD.

    Wait…how was a 66 year old, paraplegic woman, “working” at the Super Bowl? Was she really doing security work

    Yeah because we’ve known for years that people in wheelchairs can’t do anything. Plus, it’s well known that everyone between the stands and the field are all security personnel. Right?

  9. Hello Mr.Bennett.Be Sure Your Sin Will Find You Out -Sin will take you farther than you want to go, keep you longer than you want to stay, and cost you more than you want to pay. –

  10. Maybe Howie Roseman will learn that No amount of great trades can take away the fact from bringing Bennett on can’t be justified.No way Roseman didn’t know about this.

    Bye Bye Bennett.

    They are trying to find ways to employ the disabled. Since all the person needs to do is sit there instructing people to go around the other way its a reasonably good role. They cant staff every little post and gate with commandos for physically stopping anyone that doesnt comply. They would assume that for purposes of spectator traffic within the security perimeters they just need folks that can give the right instructions and expect people not to just bully their way past. And if someone does they would identify and deal with the person as they are doing here. They would use video to go back and establish who it was, which would in itself be a tough task and take a long time, and then in this case I gotta think once they saw who they had to go after they got extra careful double checking everything and making sure it was all properly covered before moving on it.

    And some folks wonder why they get rough handled by the Authority.

    Because that’s certainly grounds for excessive force, right? smh idiot!

  13. And the Eagles were more than happy to bring him aboard. Jason Kelce already proved he’s a brainless moron, so why not add Bennett?

  14. First question, who does this guy think he is? That’s sick and disturbing to even think about.

    Second question, why is a 66 year old paraplegic working tunnel security duty at a Super Bowl?

  15. You see, cowboys fans, this is how you’re supposed to feel if you’re a decent human being and your team employs someone like that

    ————————-
    Ah cowboy paranoia….SB champs and still acting like losers jealous of the cowboys….story has nothing to do with the cowboys…yet eagle fan cannot stop thinking about the cowboys….eagle fan=demented and sad, yet social.

    As for Michael Bennett…..just not a good guy. Unfortunately, there are more guys like this in the nfl and not enough class acts….take a knee gentlemen.

  16. Whoever hired a 66 year old paraplegic woman to secure an area that was likely to be bombarded with a bunch of fired up, juiced up, wild guys needs to be charged with endangering the welfare of the elderly as well.

  17. “You see, cowboys fans, this is how you’re supposed to feel if you’re a decent human being and your team employs someone like that”

    says the fan base that throws batteries at Santa.

  18. When I read the headline I believed this was gonna be from the Bennett hoax in Las Vegas casino … Figured that when Bennett ran through the lobby ‘fearing for his life’ he knocked over a woman …

  19. My bet is the thumbs downs I received are eagles fans (I am an eagle fan). I’m listening to the radio in Philly & fans are calling in saying ‘benefit of the doubt’, ‘why is a paraplegic working security?’…let me set you morons straight. HE KNOCKED OVER AN ELDERLY WOMAN IN A WHEEL CHAIR. what the bleep else can you think besides ‘scum bag’? Are you people for real that think that? This is HEINOUS, absolutely despicable regardless of whether he pushed her intentionally or not, wouldn’t a decent person stop and see if she’s okay? This dude needs to go and NEVER be employed in the nfl again. Unacceptable. Period

  24. Bennett must have had really bad legal advice if he couldn’t put this one to rest quietly before now.

    Or he was too stupid to seek legal advice.

  25. Not in the least bit surprising. Like Richard Sherman, he’s been reading too many of his own press clippings. Just an entitled jerk.

    Since they only just idenfified that he was the person they were looking for I doubt Seattle or Roseman knew anything about this. Its a case where the teams are totally blindsided and not guilty of anything that they can be criticized. This one is all on MB himself.

    Of all the people rushing the field how many shoved paraplegic old ladies out of the way?

  28. I’m sure with all the cameras they will be able to either prove or disprove these accusations. Until then I will restrain from the normal hating that has already ensued. If it’s true he needs to be cut immediately and hopefully no one picks him up. If untrue then this woman should be held accountable as well. Why has it taken 13 months for this to come out??

  29. Guarantee she loses the case. I mean seriously, what are the odds she knew exactly who he was. I guess age doesn’t matter when it comes to these bystanders trying to catch a free payday.

    It speaks volumes about you that this was your first reaction.
    None of it good.

  32. For him to be indicted there must be video or several reliable eye witnesses. Dude can’t play victim this time!

  33. The Eagles knew all about this , the charges will be dropped and Bennett will pay lots of cash in civil court or he will just pay the lady off the books . Bennett is a typical Seahawk scumbag just like Pete Carroll . Cant wait to see the Rams destroy whats left of that team for the next few years

  34. An absolutely no class thing to do. I wonder how many 65-yr olds consider themselves ‘elderly, though?!

    — No, she signaled out the jackass that ran her over.

  36. Here’s your 2018 nominee for The Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year Award! Congratulations!

  37. Average Joe with an average income? Prison time. Any NFL player who makes 7 or 8 figures per annum? 6 hours of community service and a slap on the wrist type fine. That is how the elite money class differs from the average citizen. Money can buy almost anything in this country. The NFL probably won’t do anything either.

  38. “There is no word on the nature of the woman’s injuries, and there has been no explanation about why it took 13 months for charges to be brought”.

    Because that’s how long it took for her (& some lawyer) to figure out that he had…..MONEY!!

  39. First off, I know a lot of people that are 66 years young and very active. Second, just say she was in a wheelchair. Third, she was most likely an usher & not security to the dopes on this thread. Fourth, the prosecutor will ALWAYS go for the worst charge they can get, which will be bargained down to a misdemeanor. Dum dum Bennet will get a fine & community service. Nothing to see here, peanut gallery.

  40. Those of you who are blasting the Eagles for this, grow up and let go of your bitterness. It is being reported Eagles nor Seattle knew anything about this. This is on Bennett.

    Good point, if she had use of her legs she could’ve run faster than Michael did from the cops that one time (LOL). Seriously reconsider what you’re saying, she’s 66 years old.

  42. Something’s fishy about this. Smith is right that the timing makes no sense.

    Also, 66 is not really elderly anymore. And yet the law more readily protects “elderly” than “paraplegic?” The law is weird. Get me Florio.

  43. That guy keeps getting frustrated and physical at the end of every Patriots Super Bowl victory.

  44. To you commenters crying “money grab,” This is a criminal indictment, not a civil suit. The woman stands to gain nothing from this.

    They will certainly have video. Thats how they identified who it was. They would have started with simply that it was a large african ametican male. They are not going to say “oh thats probably Michael Bennett then” he would not be on their minds at all at that point. What they would do is pull video and locate their angles on the incident. Once they have the person spotted they would then keep finding angles on him until they got a good face shot. That would go into a facial recognition process but since at that point it could be anyone this is a long process (its not something Abby Schouto runs on her laptop in a few hours like in NCIS) At the same time they would have continued tracking the person through all the footage and may have eventually found him embracing his brother tipping them off that its someone Marty Bennett knows. Which path led them to the ID or if there was another one I dont know, but both ways are time consuming so 13 months is not unreasonable. Also, once they have the ID they know they are dealing with a high profile figure with a history of vilifying the police and saying they are out to get him and playing the race card etc… and being high profile they know he will get lots of airplay with his finger pointing. So they would put extra time into making sure they have a ton if ID, a good video of the incident, good solid testimony, probably questioned her over and over to make sure her story didnt change. They would dot all i’s and cross all t’s to make sure they are ready for whats to come. In his case his history is going to make law enforcement not reluctant to come after him (probably dont mind it at all as long as there is a valid case) but extra careful as they do it so that he does not have anything he can use to blow back on them because they know if he can he will. So the 13 months is not unreasonable at all. And I am sure the time was spent getting very good evidence video and otherwise.

  46. Get this pos off of my team now!!!!

    Is this Jeff Lurie? Eagle fan you don’t own the team. The eagles like to be all self-righteous, but they take on their share of scum. The Michael Vicks of the world and spin it as a second chance. I’m curious to see how they will spin this. If the eagle franchise is so prim and proper and the gold standard, then cut this guy, if any of this is true. I can’t wait to watch this play out.

  47. Isn’t this the same guy that got slapped around by Gronk in the SB? Apparently he can only push around elderly women in wheelchairs.

  48. Fan InDenial says:
    March 23, 2018 at 3:31 pm

    Why was he rushing the field? His brother lost?
    ———————–

    This was two Super Bowls ago, in Houston, when the Patriots had their historic comeback from being down 28-3.

  49. Incredible that people are questioning the fact that an elderly woman in a wheelchair was part of the security staff. That is irrelevant. For your average law abiding citizen, the elderly woman is enough. She is there to direct you where you need to be. For scumbags like M. Bennett, it obviously isn’t enough.

    And the funny part is… If there WERE an able bodied security guard that prevented him from accessing the field, he would have cried police brutality.

  50. “Looks like no one here knows the difference between an indictment and a conviction”
    …or am indictment and an arrest. I don’t think Seattle tried to pull a fast one on Philly *unless* Houston had notified the Seahawks that Bennett was under investigation.

  51. Another classy player for a classy fan base.

    Seriously?! An elderly parapalegic woman?!?!?!?!?

    Kick this jerk out of the league!

  52. Your comment is awaiting moderation.
    (corrects typo)

    “Looks like no one here knows the difference between an indictment and a conviction”
    …or an indictment and an arrest. I don’t think Seattle tried to pull a fast one on Philly *unless* Houston had notified the Seahawks that Bennett was under investigation

  53. Awful lot of “classy responders” here think handicapped people shouldn’t be working, can’t direct people on where to walk or should have gotten out of Bennett’s way!
    Bennett is a POS and so are supporters!

  54. I totally agree that Bennett should be fined or something, but either the Eagles/Seahawks need to cancel the trade, or something, but it’s not fair for the Eagles to be punished for something he did while he was a Seahawk. I’m an Eagles fan living in Seahawks country and I never wanted him on either team. He’s an idiot but that’s not right. I’m positive the Eagles didn’t know about this b4 the trade. Why would they trade someone for a 1 year contract when he may be suspended for 6 games or something like that from the NFL. That would be stupid. Eagles haters are going to say what they want to say but logic says it doesn’t make any sense. People just show their ignorance and stupidity by thinking the Eagles knew about this.

  55. He pushed and injured a 66-year-old paraplegic woman? How is this guy in the league?

    Is this what the NFL has come to? This is classless. He’s just another criminal that the NFL seems to want to hire. Why? He injured an employee (whether direct or contracted) of the NFL. The NFL should not employ him any longer.

  56. Awful lot of “classy responders” here think handicapped people shouldn’t be working, can’t direct people on where to walk or should have gotten out of Bennett’s way!
    Bennett is a POS and so are supporters!
    ____

    I don’t support him or his actions whatsoever. It’s disgusting and disturbing and downright pathetic.

    But it’s a legitimate question. Why is a 66 year old paraplegic in that position to guard or block people in access tunnels at a Super Bowl? It’s not that she can’t be working, it’s not that she shouldn’t be entitled to a job. But why THAT job in THAT position for THAT event? I don’t understand that logic and questioning it is IN ABSOLUTELY NO WAY excusing or supporting Bennett and what he’s charged with.

    I don’t get why people just wanna blindly yell over everybody else, and act as if anyone who doesn’t blindly yell alongside you is your enemy. Take a look around, that’s where this “rabble rabble rabble i’m not even gonna listen to anything that doesn’t directly validate my outrage” attitude people have is taking society.

  57. By the way, calling people “POS” regardless of how justified you feel it may be, also is not “classy”. You can’t call people out for lacking class when you make no effort to exude any yourself.

    ==========================
    what difference does it make?

  59. This man should be playing for the Cowboys, sounds like a Jerry Jones player. I guess he was running from the Vegas police again and the lady just got in the way.

  60. for the criminal case, bennett faces a possible fine, and no jail time, with no admission of guilt. there, i’m a reporter now.

  61. Matters not if the lady was working or just down on the sidelines… a huge man pushing any lady, much less an elderly one that has physical problems out of the way got an a$$ whupping back in my day! What a man…..sheesh!

  62. Hold on… I seriously doubt he meant to push her let alone hurt her… he probably didn’t even know she was there. It does not mean he should not be responsible for it and should be fined by the law appropriately. He needs to own it and deal with the consequences. That’s all. BTW she was using an alternate entrance due to her condition, not working.

  63. The police
    The Prosecutor
    NRG Stadium
    The elderly handicap woman
    society
    These are all the things you will hear Bennett and his lawyer blame this on.

    Well Howie, I guess your record is a bit tarnished now

    Tarnished?? How so? It was just reported Seattle never informed the eagles of a possible indictment. Also, there is no way to know about an open investigation unless Seattle had informed them. If Seattle indeed held this from the eagles I would think the eagles should have the right to reverse the trade. . I mean this is pretty shady of Seattle if that was the case…So how again does this tarnish Howie?? Stop hating buddy.

  66. I am so sick of this! you cannot say anything or people will say you are against this type of person or that. When is it going to become painfully clear, we need to stop enabling people by forcing our silence? Also good luck Aldon.. Why do we keep putting up with this when it is painfully obvious, there is a trend with some people in America. And when are they going to admit, yes it IS our Fault.

  67. The guy really needs to go away for ever.I find it very hard to believe that the Eagles and Seahawks didn’t know about this. It’s impossible in today’s day and age. He will fit right in with the Philly fans though, No doubt about that. Eagles ownership and the fan base will embrace this kind of a hero.

    Maybe she was just giving directions which would not be an issue if Bennett did not act like a self-entitled d-bag before assaulting her.

  69. Nooo! Please don’t send this guy back to Seattle!!! Was so glad when they finally got rid of him. Good player? Meh. He had flashes, but if you have 8.5 sacks and 12 penalties (many of which gave the opposing teams a first down) are you really helping the team? Not to mention the “drama” that always accompanies this guy. If the League forces a reversal of the trade, I’d prefer to see him cut outright than brought back. He wore out his welcome with me.

    She wasn’t the only one there. There are other stories out there that go more in depth and explain that. She was however the weakest link which is why he attacked there. I’m amazed at the amount of people taking bennet’s side. SMH

  75. So the district attorney has been investigating this for over a year and has been very careful because they know Bennet is just waiting to cry Racism so you know they have the goods on this guy. The real question is finding this guys a suitable punishment. If you send him to prison which is where he belongs he’ll just be a hero to other losers so maybe Cleaning bed pans for a year or so at various nursing homes would be good.

  76. I don’t see how any of this blows back on Seattle no matter how this unfolds, aside from future trade partners distrusting them. It’s Philly’s lack of due diligence in the case of bringing in a player with dubious character. Assuming this didn’t just pop up.

  77. good trade She-gles, you are now stuck with this P.O.S……LOL!!!!!!

    I have posted for years that he and his brother are the biggest turds in the NFL who always accuse people of being racist against them…….stay classy Michael!

  78. Hat Trick, yes this indeed tarnishes Howie’s reputation. He and his staff get paid plenty to do some background on an individual they hope to trade for. Obviously any flimsy background check would have alerted him and his office.

    Have you ever been to a ball game? Any sport? Im surprised at anyone saying they havent seen this before. All parks try to give the usher jobs (considered part of security) to elderly and disabled who need the money making opportunities. Its a decent thing to do.

    The usher job is simply telling people the right way to go and which ways they are not supposed to go and people are supposed to (and generally do) heed the instructions and follow them. Its not in the job description to have to stop off duty NFL pass rushers from getting through them. Its assumed that doing that should not be necessary outside of the game.

    Sounds legit.

    I don’t see how any of this blows back on Seattle no matter how this unfolds, aside from future trade partners distrusting them. It’s Philly’s lack of due diligence in the case of bringing in a player with dubious character. Assuming this didn’t just pop up.

    ————————-
    Per reports it did just pop up. Neither Seattle nor Philly are guilty of any malfeasance or negligence here. And it makes sense too. If I am running an investigation that reveals that the person I am seeking is MB, and given his history of how he responds to police anything and using the media as a weapon, I am going to make sure I have a bulletproof case with every loose end tied up neatly before I am saying a word to anyone.

    Goodell will say no suspension and then give him 6.

    It really depends on who voted how on his contract renewal.

  86. This guy is an animal and he belongs in a cage. He has repeatedly demonstrated that he has no control over his own actions.

  87. Yep….so the story will go that he is indicted because he is being racially profiled, not because he was the only person in the stadium that assaulted a paraplegic woman. There will be lawyers…and then there will be video tapes.

  88. Xaviet179,

    First background check? There was an open investigation with no arrest warrants. There was nothing to discover. Especially with it being in another state. This all just came about and it’s lokkkng like he Seahawks did not know about this either. A background check doesn’t tell you squat until a warrant or arrest is made. So again… what are you talking about?

  89. Eagles might of got screwed for trading for a guy who already has a history of bad decisions. Ok, I’ll give you guys that but to say Howie is tarnished because he has a warrant arrest now that Howie couldn’t magically see through a crystal ball is ridiculous. Again the eagles made this bed and now have to lay in it. I get it but let’s not crap on Howie for at the time seemed like a good trade.

  90. Boy you idiots gobble up and believe everything you read don’t you? I dont like Bennett either but this story could be a lie, could be exaggerated, or could be true. I don’t know, and neither do you. But boy our society sure loves to instantly react and judge lol. Pathetic.

    Oh and to the idiots calling the eagles doormats or that were jealous of ANY team… You are talking about the DEFENDING WORLD CHAMPIONS. Get a clue lol.

  91. Isn’t this the guy who claimed he was a victim of police brutality? A claim that proved to be false? Now he is charged with felonious assault on a 66 YO paraplegic at LAST year’s? And the NFL is only NOW “looking into it”? Disgrace

    “I didn’t DO IT, and even if I did, I don’t have to follow YOUR instructions or rules”!
    And some folks wonder why they get rough handled by the Authority.”

    Who are “they”? Classy man, real classy.
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    My first thought was “criminals” but it seems yours was “black men”. Why is that?

  93. Get out of my way. Don’t you know who I am? Rules? I don’t follow any damn rules! Now move!
    This is the same guy who said the cops beat him for no reason. Turns out there was no unjust beating. This guy is a clown. Now he’s the Eagles clown

  94. in·dict
    inˈdīt
    verb NORTH AMERICAN
    past tense: indicted; past participle: indicted
    formally accuse of or charge with a serious crime.

    ——–

    Don’t let that put your pitchforks down though. A good SJW jumps at the chance to burn someone to the ground before they are convicted or they have even seen or heard *evidence* (not a “charged with” reading).

    That said, I am not a fan of his or that he signed with the Eagles. Just hoping Howie knew what he was getting into when making the deal.

    Fly Eagles Fly, Super Bowl LII Champs

  95. It sounds bad. Really bad. However, if you stop and think for even a second this sounds really fishy. With all the video nowadays he’s going to plead or the case will be dismissed. Something tells me if there was a video it would’ve come out already.

  96. No matter what event you go to ushers are nice old people. Crowd control are armed police officers. That’s why I question why she was in that position. 66 year old paraplegic should not been stationed where I cop was supposed to be.

  97. Why would a 66 year old paraplegic be working security?

    I’m sorry if that being the first question i have makes me an awful person….but it’s still the first question i have

  98. Richard Sherman starts talking about Eric Reid this week and upsets San Francisco fans for the first time.

    A few days later Michael Bennett gets busted like this. My wife thinks it seems fishy but the negative press is terrible.

    Seahawks coming out nicely.

    It is so good to see all these angry comments in a thread about a player from another team for once…this Seahawk fan is done. I’m tired of it.

    I wonder if there’s a correlation between having a huge chip on your shoulder before you win it all…and being a complete self-centered turd after.

  99. Seems like none of you clowns realize with the passing of Al Davis, there is a new
    mindset in Oakland, a new owner that doesn’t think quite like his dad did, and a
    new coach that won’t take this kind of crap.

    Based on Ezekial Elliott’s suspension, he SHOULD get a 6 game suspension.
