Philadelphia Eagles defensive end Michael Bennett has been indicted by a Texas jury after allegedly injuring a woman at Super Bowl LI in Houston last year.
Bennett, 32, faces a felony charge of injury of the elderly after allegedly shoving a 66-year-old paraplegic woman while attempting to run out onto the field to congratulate his brother, then-New England Patriots tight end Martellus Bennett.
According to a statement from the Harris County District Attorney in Houston, Bennett was told by NRG Stadium employees to use a different entrance to the field, but pushed past them anyway.
The charge carries a penalty of up to 10 years in prison and a $10,000 fine.
Bennett previously made headlines with a different off-the-field incident last fall, when he shared a tweet saying he was racially profiled and harassed by Las Vegas police officers who threatened to “blow my f—ing head off.”
The 10-year NFL veteran was with the Seattle Seahawks at the time of the alleged incident.
