Seattle Seahawks defensive lineman Michael Bennett created a stir on social media early Wednesday morning, posting a story on Twitter, providing details and claims of police wrongfully arresting him and using excessive force on him during an incident in Las Vegas following the Conor McGregor-Floyd Mayweather fight.

TMZ has now acquired cell phone video of police putting handcuffs on Bennett in which he can be heard shouting, "I wasn't doing nothing man! I was here with my friends! They told us to get out, everybody ran!"
Bennett also claimed that an officer put a gun to his head and threatened to "blow my f*cking head off," but that is not seen in the short video.
