Eagles’ Michael Bennett incident: Listed here are the foremost holes in Houston’s shaky indictment
Regardless of witnessing the alleged assault, a police officer on the scene does to not make an arrest and permits Bennett onto the sphere.
“Officer Morgan did an evaluation, and based mostly on the very fact he was a one-man unit and Mr. Bennett is far bigger than he’s, there was pandemonium, and fairly frankly he acknowledged Mr. Bennett as being the Michael Bennett, who as you all know is right here in Houston and is an NFL participant,” Acevedo stated. “He knew that he needed to hold eyes on that location. He didn’t really feel Mr. Bennett posed an extra risk to anybody by going onto the sphere.”
Though Acevedo stated he agreed with the choice to not arrest Bennett on the time, and that call is the primary of many questionable choices by the Houston police division.
If Bennett assaulted three folks, and the incident warranted an indictment, why wasn’t he arrested on the scene? Or, after the postgame commotion, why wasn’t he questioned whereas he was nonetheless on the stadium?
Bennett wasn’t precisely hiding, as he even appeared on the set of the NFL Community‘s postgame present.
