Felony Charge To Be Dropped

… In Injury To Elderly Case

4/3/2019 12:05 PM PDT

NFL star Michael Bennett is set to have his felony charge dropped in his injury to elderly case … ’cause prosecutors flat-out admit they don’t have proof that he committed a crime.

Bennett was indicted by a Harris County, TX Grand Jury after being accused of pushing a 66-year-old female NRG Stadium employee who was controlling access to the field at Super Bowl 51 in February 2017.

Cops claimed Bennett — who was on his way to celebrate his brother’s Super Bowl win over the Falcons — shoved a paraplegic woman’s wheelchair as she tried to prevent him from getting to the field.

At the time … cops said Bennett yelled, “I could own this mother f***er!” before he allegedly pushed her and injured her shoulder.

The charge was a big deal … the New England Patriots pass rusher was facing YEARS behind bars — the charge carries a maximum of 10 years in prison.

But prosecutors say “after looking at all the evidence and applying the law, a crime could not be proven beyond a reasonable doubt.”

Prosecutors say they conducted an EXTENSIVE investigation — including viewing surveillance tapes — and ultimately decided to request to drop the case against the 33-year-old.

“We dismissed this case in the interest of justice,” prosecutors say … “After looking at all the evidence, this was the right thing to do.”
