Okay so here’s what we know for sure about Michael Bennett being pinned down and handcuffed by police by Las Vegas police following the Floyd Mayweather/Conor McGregor fight in Las Vegas.
That’s because we have TMZ video showing exactly that’s what DID happen – all while the Seattle Seahawks star pleaded with the officer asking what he did wrong.
What we do not know is if any of the other things Bennett is accusing the cops of—like an officer pointing a gun at his head or threatening to “blow my f—ing head off,” because they were not on that video.
But it sure seems possible.
“Sources connected to the investigation tell TMZ Sports … when cops responded to the club for a possible shooting, they ordered everyone to get down and not move so they could properly search and investigate.
We’re told Bennett did not stay put — instead, he ran — and a cop outside the club stopped him and ordered him down to the ground at gunpoint.
Our sources say Bennett was detained until cops could determine he was not involved in any possible criminal activity … and he was released.”
Still, Bennett insists he was assaulted for being “a black man in the wrong place at the wrong time.” All told, it should be interesting to see how the facts play out.
