LeSean McCoy spent Super Bowl weekend getting in a whole lot of trouble.
Mike Garafolo of FOX Sports reported Monday night that police in Philadelphia would issue a warrant for McCoy’s arrest. He can surrender on his own by mid-week.
ESPN’s Mark Schwartz reported late Monday the warrant was “imminent” and should be expected within 24-48 hours.
Reportedly, McCoy was involved in a Philly nightclub fight that sent two off duty police officers to the hospital.
There was no video surveillance functioning at the club, but the website CrossingBroad.com posted a phone clip that appears to involve McCoy in the fight.
According to a police report. an off-duty police officer purchased four bottles of champagne.
A former Pitt football player, Tamarcus Porter, tried to claim one of the bottles. An argument ensued that led to McCoy, Porter, former Syracuse football player Curtis Brinkley and a fourth man getting into a fight with the officer.
According to the report, the officier was knocked to the ground while McCoy’s group was “punching, kicking and stomping” him.
Two other off-duty officers broke up the fight along with nightclub security. Both McCoy’s group and the officers were ejected from the club.
Two of the officers transported themselves to the hospital with multiple injuries, including a possible fractured skull.
The Bills issued a statement saying “We are aware of the reports regarding LeSean McCoy and in the process of gathering more information.”
McCoy’s agent Drew Rosenhaus has not commented.
