On Friday, a Houston grand jury indictment calling for the arrest of Eagles defensive end Michael Bennett was released after the nine-year National Football League vet was accused of pushing/injuring a 66-year-old paraplegic woman to get on the field to celebrate with his brother, Martellus, after the latter bro won the Super Bowl in 2017.

According to the DA's statement, Bennett - who attended high school in the Houston area - was in town for the February 5, 2017 Super Bowl to watch his brother, Martellus, who played for the New England Patriots against the Atlanta Falcons. Bennett was at the game as a spectator watching his brother Martellus play for the New England Patriots against the Atlanta Falcons.

Michael Bennett, the Philadelphia Eagles' new defensive end, turned himself in to Houston police Monday afternoon in response to a felony charge relating to an alleged incident at Super Bowl LI in 2017. It carries a penalty of up to 10 years in prison and a $10,000 fine. Acevedo said the officer checked on the condition of the paraplegic woman rather than trying to detain Bennett.

Rusty Hardin, the Houston defense attorney who has represented Roger Clemens and other high-profile clients and is now representing Bennett, called the chief's comments "over the top".

From the courthouse, Hardin took issue with Acevedo's words.

Roseman said the Eagles did not know about the Houston incident when they traded with the Seattle Seahawks for Bennett on March 8.

The third-round 69 breaks a small string of third-round improvement during Woods' three previous made cuts this year. Henrik Stenson has another chance to win at Bay Hill, and he made it a little bit tougher on Tiger Woods.

"In this country, people are presumed innocent", Mr. Roseman said. "We have to fair about that in all these matters", Roseman said.

Former Seahawks DE Michael Bennett was indicted Friday for an alleged 2017 incident.

Hardin told US today that Bennett has been out of the country.

"I want to be clear: There's probably not a person-and I'm going to put him on the same ground as a bunch of people-that we trust more than (GM) John Schneider and the Seahawks", Roseman told reporters in Orlando. "Unlike the chief of police, I can tell you right now this guy is not morally bankrupt, he's one of the best people I've met".

The Houston Police Department forwarded its findings to prosecutors in December, according to NFL Network. "I'm going to take my time to find out what occurred".
