You may recall that Michael Bennett joined Team Kaepernick and sat during the National Anthem. In a new story he claims he was roughed up by the cops.
Now that facts and video have surfaced, the truth is coming out. Police were responding to a call about a shooting at a club Bennett was at. The cops were looking to investigate, but Michael Bennett was having none of it. He took off running!
Watch the video.
Sources connected to the investigation tell TMZ Sports … when cops responded to the club for a possible shooting, they ordered everyone to get down and not move so they could properly search and investigate.
We’re told Bennett did not stay put — instead, he ran — and a cop outside the club stopped him and ordered him down to the ground at gunpoint.
Our sources say Bennett was detained until cops could determine he was not involved in any possible criminal activity … and he was released.
Bennett addressed the issue on Twitter.

The video doesn't portray the same tale that Bennett told on Twitter.
Sure, all the details aren't out yet. No one yet knows why Bennett took off like he was going after a quarterback. It's pretty established that running from the police during a potential shooting is not a smart move.
