Bills RB LeSean McCoy Could Face Charges in Fight with Cops
Buffalo Bills running back LeSean McCoy is currently under investigation over an alleged assault of off-duty police officers at a Philly nightclub over the weekend.
According to reports, two off-duty officers, both 40-year-old black men and members of the city's police department, were injured in a fight with four black men around 2:45 a.m. Sunday. While police have not identified the four suspects, a source familiar with the investigation tells ESPN that McCoy is one of the men under investigation.
TMZ has leaked video footage of the incident, which shows a man that appears to be McCoy... who throws at least one punch in the clip.
An argument is said to have sparked the brawl, which took place inside Recess nightclub. It began over ownership of a bottle of champagne, according to police. Authorities said "pushing and shoving" over the bottle led to one of the off-duty officers being knocked to the ground, after which he was "punched, kicked and stomped about his body and head multiple times by all four suspects."
Another off-duty officer helped club security break up the fight, and "all parties were ejected from the club," police said.
The officer, who was initially knocked to the ground was identified as Roland Butler. He went to a hospital shortly after, where he was treated for a cut to his right eye, a broken nose, broken ribs and a sprained thumb. The officer who broke up the fight was also admitted and received eight stitches over his left eye and is receiving treatment for a possible skull fracture.
