Philadelphia Eagles defensive end Michael Bennett was indicted Friday for allegedly assaulting an elderly person.
The incident allegedly happened at Super Bowl LI in Houston where Bennett was attending as a spectator in February 2017.
Bennet reportedly tried to storm the field after the Patriots’ victory, but the person working told him he had to use a different entrance.

Then, Bennett allegedly pushed the 66-year-old paraplegic female, causing “bodily injury.”
While a member of the Seattle Seahawks, Bennett came into the spotlight for his embrace of kneeling for the national anthem. He also accused police officers of racially targeting him, which was later shown to be inaccurate.
The charge carries a fine of $10,000 and up to 10 years in prison.
Bennett’s lawyer is currently negotiating the terms of his surrender.
