NFL star Michael Bennett has been indicted by a grand jury in Harris County, Texas, and a warrant is now out for his arrest.
The grand jury found that Bennett committed a felony by injuring a 66-year-old paraplegic who was working at NRG Stadium for the Super Bowl, working to control access to the field. After the game, Bennett shoved his way onto the field to see his brother, despite the workers telling him to go another way.
The charge, injury to the elderly, includes intentionally and knowingly, causing bodily injury to a person 65 years or older. It carries a penalty of up to 10 years in prison and a $10,000 fine. As a result of the indictment, a warrant has been issued for Bennett’s arrest. Prosecutors are working with Bennett’s counsel for a surrender.
