Michael Bennett latest: Eagles DE appears in Houston court

Report: Eagles Michael Bennett to surrender to police Monday

Report: Former Texas A&M DL Michael Bennett expected to turn himself in Monday

The HPD urged Bennett to turn himself in "as soon as possible" - but Bennett waited until now because he was out of the continental USA, according to his lawyer, Rusty Hardin.

Michael Bennett was reportedly taken into handcuffs by Harris County Sheriff's Office on Monday following his court appearance for allegedly assaulting an elderly security staff worker following Super Bowl 51. Bennett was out of the country.

Hardin explained that on the evening of February 5, 2017, after the Patriots beat the Falcons in Super Bowl LI, a group of families of Patriots players entered the field together after sitting together during the game.

In Houston, that charge carries a fine of up to $10,000 and up to 10 years in prison.

After starring with the Seattle Seahawks since 2013, Bennett was traded to the Eagles in March. He said there were 25-30 people and Bennett wasn't even the first one to get on the field through the gate.

"Instead, he pushed through them, including the elderly woman who was part of the security team".

Chief Acevado said Bennett disregarded the command of a Houston police officer working security at the game who witnessed the incident.

The incident happened in 2017 when Bennett was in Houston to watch his brother who played for the New England Patriots.

Last Friday, Houston police chief Art Acevedo called Bennett "morally bankrupt" and surmised that Bennett thinks he's entitled because he's a professional athlete.

The court imposed a no-contact order for Bennett with Tatman, the complainant, meaning Bennett is not permitted to contact her.

"My initial reaction is that everyone needs to calm down a little bit", Hardin said. "Because this is an ongoing legal matter, we will have no further comment at this time", the team said in a statement on Friday.

The type of injuries suffered by the woman weren't revealed in the news release. "I think we're in a great country, and in this country people are presumed innocent and I think we have to be fair about that in all of these matters. I'm going to take my time to find out what occurred". "I'm going on the field whether you like it or not", according to the Houston Chronicle.
