Seahawks star alleges Vegas police used excessive force after Mayweather-McGregor bout


Seattle Seahawks superstar Michael Bennett says the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department used excessive force against him after the Mayweather-McGregor fight on Aug. 27.

TMZ obtained video that was shot outside Drai's Nightclub, where you can see one officer take position on a balcony while another officer handcuffs Bennett on the street.

In the video, you can hear Bennett screams out, "I wasn't doing nothing man! I was here with my friends! They told us to get out, everybody ran!"

Bennett claims the officer had pulled a gun on him and threatened to "blow my f*cking head off."

He released a lengthy statement on Twitter on Wednesday morning, saying that LVMPD officers placed handcuffs on him so tightly that his fingers went numb.

After the story was made public, the bureau sent out a tweet urging the public to "reserve judgment."
