Former Eagles player wanted for questioning in assault on Philly cops
By Alex Lloyd Gross
LaSean McCoy is being sought by questioning by Philadelphia Police in connection with his involvement in a serious assault against two off duty Philadelphia cops who were in the Recess lounge at 125 North 2nd street in Philadelphia, when the altercation ensued. The incident started when one of the cops ordered more than one bottle of champagne and one male who was with McCoy is alleged to have grabbed one of the bottles from a cop.
When he protested, the cop was punched and knocked to the ground, where McCoy and three of his friends are alleged to have punched and kicked the cop. Another off duty cop who was with his friend tried to intervene and club security became involved and ejected all of the combatants. A video does show the ejection but not the assault, cops tell Delaware Valley News.com
Both cops drove themselves to local hospitals. The first officer has a broken nose, several broken ribs. The second cop may have sustained a skull fracture. McCoy , who now plays for the Buffalo Bills was the only player named. If he is charged, he could be facing felony charges that , due to the nature of the injuries , could very well end his NFL career effective immediately. In fact, any player involved is in danger of losing their career over this matter.
So far, the matter is being investigated and no one has been arrested. Drew Rosenhaus, McCoy’s agent did not make a statement.
