"Being Black  Nearly Got Me Arrested", Says Michael Bennett In The Las Vegas Incident!

Michael once claimed that the Las Vegas police held him at the gunpoint for doing nothing but just being on the wrong place at the wrong time. 

He was there to attend the Mayweather-McGregor fight on his day off and after the fight when all the people were returning, hundreds of people heard that sounded like gunshots. Everybody began to run but some police officers singled him and forced him to the ground just for being black. He posted a lengthy statement on his twitter about the statement.

Bennett said,

"[The police officer] placed his gun near my head and warned me that if I moved he would 'blow my f---ing head off,'"

The police never really answered what he had done but released him when they confirmed his identity. While he was on the ground,

"I wasn’t doing nothing man! I was here with my friends! They told us to get out — everybody ran."

Bennett from the incident believes that he was racially profiled but everything became normal once his identity was confirmed.
