Michael Bennett Says He Was Detained By Las Vegas Police Last Month

This is a shocking story coming out this morning as Seattle Seahawks defensive lineman and outspoken activist Michael Bennett revealed he was held at gunpoint by the Las Vegas Police Department a few days ago.

According to a post on Bennett’s Instagram account, the incident occurred Aug. 26 when Bennett was in town for the Mayweather fight. After the fight, Bennett said people thought they heard gunshots.

“Like many of the people in the area I ran away from the sound, looking for safety,” Bennett said in his IG post. “Las Vegas police officers singled me out and pointed their guns at me for doing nothing more than simply being a black man in the wrong place at the wrong time.”

Equality.

I wouldn’t expect Bennett to stop his sideline protest anytime soon now.
