PHILADELPHIA, PA (WIVB) — A former member of the Philadelphia community is facing a firestorm there, along with potential criminal charges after LeSean McCoy allegedly attacked two off-duty cops.
McCoy, top running back for the Buffalo Bills, was a star for the Philadelphia Eagles for several years before he departed in trade deal. While on off-season, McCoy and three of his former NFL friends allegedly got into a brawl at a private bar over the weekend with two off-duty police officers over a bottle of champagne.
Police investigation concluded several days after the alleged altercation, and officers turned the burden of filing criminal charges over to the Philadelphia District Attorney’s office.
No charges have been filed yet, as prosecutors continue to mull over whether or not they will issue a warrant for McCoy’s arrest.
Philadelphia’s Mayor Jim Kenney, however, has already made up his mind. He issued stern words in an exclusive interview with CBS in Philadelphia.
“If (McCoy) wants to stomp our officers and pound our officers, then he needs to pay the price and answer for his actions,” Kenney said.
Kenney, who watched video of the brawl, said he saw kicks being thrown, and called the act “cowardly.”
