A video capturing part of Michael Bennett's incident with Las Vegas police on Aug. 26 has been obtained by TMZ Sports.

The video shows one officer handcuffing Bennett while another officer covers them from a balcony above, appearing to hold a handgun.

Bennett can be heard yelling during the video, "I wasn't doing nothing man! ... I was here with my friends! They told us to get out, everybody ran!"

In a statement Wednesday describing the incident on Twitter, the Seattle Seahawks defensive end detailed how officers racially profiled him after it sounded like shots were fired near his hotel. He alleged officers used excessive force and threatened to "blow (his) fucking head off."

Bennett is considering a civil rights lawsuit.
