Cops Sue Bill’s Running Back LeSean McCoy For Assaulting Them When the DA Refused To Charge Him

Philadelphia, PA – A altercation between two Philadelphia police officers, Buffalo Bills running back Lesean McCoy and three associates left McCoy with special treatment from the prosecutor, but the injured officers aren’t having it. The officers who were reportedly assaulted by McCoy are suing him.

The altercation resulted in both officers being hospitalized with injuries

The February 7th altercation stemmed from a disagreement over who purchased a $350.00 bottle of champagne.  As the off-duty officers were hired to work security at the nightclub, their attempt to resolve the matter lead to their viscous assault and beating.  After a legal battle in which the justice system failed the officers – declaring that no charges would be file against LeSean McCoy because McCoy gave a different account of events than the officers – a civil suit has been brought by both officers against Mccoy, his 3 friends, and the Recess nightclub.

The attorney representing both officers was quoted as saying, “Our investigation has confirmed that [officers] Darnell Jessie and Roland Butler were viciously attacked and beaten by LeSean McCoy and the additional defendants. As a result of the violent assault, both men have suffered serious and permanent injuries.”

Due to the high-profile nature of the case, the Philadelphia Police Department referred the case to the District Attorney’s office.  In April, the DA announced that they had decided not to prosecute LeSean McCoy in regards to the fight.  The excuse given was that they could not prove who initiated the fight, which spits on the integrity of the police officers involved who reported that McCoy was the instigator.

After reviewing the case, the Philadelphia Fraternal Order of Police requested a case review by the Pennsylvania Attorney General’s office.  Their call for a review indicates a stance that they believe there is actually overwhelming evidence to warrant an arrest and prosecution.

In July the Attorney General’s office released their opinion.  Then-Solicitor General Bruce Castor issued the following statement: “I would have to not only disagree with the decision of DA Williams but would have to conclude that his decision was so far off the mark as to be abusing the authority given him by the voters of Philadelphia.  Applying that standard, I cannot say that I find DA Williams abused his discretion.”

This statement by Castor shows that the law sides with the officers.  Unfortunately, the Attorney General’s Office cannot reverse the District Attorney’s decision, nor can they impose any sanctions as the DA is afforded discretion with which cases his office prosecutes.

Feeling failed by the criminal legal system, these two officers have taken the matter to civil court, seeking unspecified damages against LeSean Mccoy, his three associates, and the club.  McCoy’s attorney has not commented on this development yet.

Regardless of the outcome of the civil trial, LeSean McCoy could face sanctions imposed by the NFL after they conclude their investigation.  But if the NFL treats this case like other cases regarding criminal behavior by players, I’m sure we won’t see much happen.

What do you think the NFL will do about this? Let us know on our Facebook page.

    Guide To Understanding ||eqro Behavior

    29) “DEVOLUTION”: Unlike the rest of the Human Race, Ne6ros are slipping backwards on the Evolutionary Scale. During the days of Segregation they sought to emulate some of the finer points of White Society (as best they could) in order to attain better lives for themselves. But in the last several decades they have been given their freedom and have been encouraged to celebrate “diversity” and their non-existent “culture”. As a result, Ne6roes have rapidly begun to devolve into the useless violent apes they were before they were taken out of the jungle 400 years ago. Just like the Goldfish that adapts to the size of the fishbowl it lives in, Ne6ros will fall to the lowest, most primitive standards of behaviour that society allows them to – and in this case, we’ve removed all the stops by allowing them to act just like the Ne6ros they truly are!

    Understanding ||eqro Behavior

    41) “BETTER ATHLETES – PART II”: Being an Athlete means more than running, jumping and climbing. An Athlete is a role model. Dedication, humility, perseverance, and gratitude are the hallmark attributes of true Athletes. Thugs recruited from “da Hood” or some ||eqro college to play in the NBA or NFL lack all of these traits. They are simply Gang-Bangers wearing Nikes, and their true colors show when they get some “cash money” in “they pocket”.

    ||eqro “Afleets” ALWAYS self-destruct because they lack the intellect and moral up-bringing to handle the stresses and temptations that come with celebrity status. Media darlings such as OJ Simpson slashed his coal-burning wife, and the half-||eqroe “Magic ||egro” Woods just couldn’t keep his jimmie in his pants whenever White Wimmenz was around.

    ||eqro Afleets are little more than greedy, grabbing Monkeeys who get their paws stuck in the cookie jar trying to steal more than they can handle!

    I hope they get enough to retire and live long and happy lives away from the disgusting treatment of police officers across this country.

    Letting these overpaid thugs get away with whatever they want has gotten America in the situation we’re in now. If we’d just make an example out of one or two, all this BS will stop.

    And just another example of why I’m glad to have stopped watching the #NFL and won’t purchase anything the sell.

    Am I missing something? He says that the DA’S decision was so far off the mark that the DA was abusing the authority of his position. Then says that he cannot say he finds the DA abused his discretion.

    Was this a misquote, or did this guy learn how to give a statement from the head of the FBI. Sounds just like when they said Hillary Clinton broke all numerous times but can’t recommend prosecution, even though someone else doing the same thing may get prosecuted.
