PHILADELPHIA, Pa. (WIVB) — Star Buffalo Bills running back LeSean McCoy could soon learn his fate after police in Philadelphia turned over a case he is implicated in over to the District Attorney’s Office there.
McCoy is implicated in a case under review now that accuses four current or former NFL players of assaulting two off-duty police officers at a private nightclub over the weekend.
The fight, caught on camera, left the officers hospitalized, however no police responded to the scene of the fight. A release from police who investigated immediately after the officers were hospitalized suggested the argument spawned over a bottle of champagne.
Both police officers sustained serious injuries from the four suspects, according to the report, including lacerations, a possible skull fracture and more. Police alleged the suspects kicked, punched and stomped on the officers.
After word broke of the altercation on Sunday, police only said the investigation would be ongoing, but now officials confirm they’ve turned over the investigation to prosecutors.
Now in the hands of the Philadelphia District Attorney, all four suspects will soon learn if they will be charged for the altercation.
As of Wednesday morning, no one had been charged yet and prosecutors say that information received by police is still under review. McCoy retained a high-profile criminal defense lawyer as prosecutors continue to review police findings.
