TMZ Sports has obtained video of NFL superstar Michael Bennett being handcuffed by police while lying face down on the concrete in Las Vegas … and you can hear him screaming that he’s innocent.

The video was shot outside Drai’s Nightclub on August 26 — you can see one officer take position on a balcony while another cop handcuffs Bennett on the street level.

During the incident Bennett screams out, “I wasn’t doing nothing man! I was here with my friends! They told us to get out, everybody ran!”
Bennett claims the officer had pulled a gun on him and threatened to “blow my f*cking head off” — but you don’t see that in our footage. At the time the video begins, Bennett is already being cuffed.

The video does show an officer holding what looks like a gun, and pointing it down at Bennett from above the railing. However, you cannot hear, at least during this portion of the video, an officer threatening Bennett that he would “blow my f-ing head off.”
