Seahawks defensive lineman Michael Bennett speaking out after an incident with police over mistaken identity.
FOX’s Matt Napolitano with more:
That’s part of video obtained by TMZ Sports showing Bennett being placed into police custody outside a Las Vegas nightclub after last month’s Mayweather-McGregor fight.
Bennett among a crowd fleeing from gunshots before being restrained and shoved by police, being shouted down by officers as he asked questions as to what was going on.
The video coming after Bennett released a letter on social media regarding that night’s incident. After briefly being in police custody, he was released and addressed the video Wednesday in a press conference:
(Bennett) “It’s a tough situation for me, do I think every police officer is bad? No I don’t believe that.”
Bennett among the growing movement of NFL players who protest the national anthem in the name of racial inequality in the United States.
