Seattle Seahawks star player Michael Bennett dropped a statement wednesday morning that accused police officers of pointing guns at him and using excessive force during an incident in Las Vegas last month after the Floyd Mayweather-Conor McGregor fight.
Police apprehended him after hearing what sounded like gunshots in a crowded area but ended up not even being gunshots according to witnesses.
Michael wrote in an IG post that an officer, with his gun drawn, warned him that he would "blow my f------ head off" if he moved then soon after he was placed in a police car until officers took his ID & realized he was not a suspect AND he was actually a famous football player. Michael says the officers released him without an apology & "without any legitimate justification for the Officers' abusive conduct."
However with all that said video came out & there is no gun to Bennett, he is however handcuffed & authorities said it's because he ran from the scene.
