Report: Former Texas A&M DL Michael Bennett expected to turn himself in Monday

Meanwhile, Bennett arrived in a Harris County court in Houston on Monday to surrender to authorities.

Bennett was at his home in Hawaii when the indictment came down on Friday, and the judge is allowing him to travel to and from his home while he's out on bail. The woman was working security at NRG Stadium, and had allegedly told Bennett that he had to use a different way to get onto the field.

Bennett is accused of shoving the security staff worker while trying to get onto the field after the game ended.

"It's very offensive to me that a man that is supposed to be an example, a professional athlete, would think that it's OK to treat people like this", he said "It's very telling of his character. I'm going to take my time to find out what occurred".

Bennett, who grew up in the Houston area, is recognized as one of the NFL's most outspoken players on social injustice and is involved in various charities.

Remington bankruptcy: Nation's oldest gun maker files for Chapter 11
In 2012, Adam Lanza used a Remington AR-15 Bushmaster rifle to carry out the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre . It is the parent company of Remington Arms, the largest producer of shotguns and rifles in the United States.

Acevedo called Bennett "morally bankrupt" for pushing the two women.

A release from the District Attorney's office stated that Bennett was a spectator and in town to watch his brother, Martellus, a player for the New England Patriots, on February 5, 2017. Police said the disabled woman suffered a sprained shoulder when she was allegedly pushed by Bennett, hitting the back of her 800-pound, motorized wheelchair.

Bennett is a three-time Pro Bowler and Super Bowl Champion.

Bennett says he was racially profiled. He faces a penalty of up to 10 years in prison and a $10,000 fine.

He said he doesn't think Seahawks general manager John Schneider withheld information from the Eagles when Seattle traded Bennett to Philadelphia earlier this month. And legal experts also say that there is likely a good chance a plea deal spares Bennett jail time - but how they effects the 32-year-old's National Football League career is unknown.
