Bills running back LeSean McCoy has maintained he didn’t do anything wrong in a Philadelphia nightclub.
Buffalo Bills running back LeSean McCoy will not be charged for his alleged role in a nightclub fight with off-duty Philadelphia police officers on Feb. 7, according to multiple reports on Monday.
McCoy, 27, and a former Philadelphia Eagle, could still be subject to NFL sanctions, as the league is likely to conduct its own investigation. But the Philadelphia District Attorney is reportedly going to announce that it will not pursue charges on Monday afternoon.
Philly.com first reported the news.
McCoy, who spent last season with the Bills but still has plenty of connections in Philadelphia, was allegedly part of a group in a fight with off-duty police officers over a bottle of champagne that the officers had purchased, according to the police report. But The Buffalo News, citing a source close to McCoy, later said that off-duty police officer Roland Butler had actually grabbed a bottle of champagne that belonged to McCoy’s party.
Although the Philadelphia police department reportedly never interviewed McCoy or the other suspects involved in the altercation, McCoy did meet with the Philly D.A.’s office several weeks later, on Feb. 23. Afterward, his attorney Dennis Cogan offered up one quote “on the public record.”
“He did nothing wrong,” Cogan said.
