According to ESPN, the NFL will not be taking any action against Bills running back, Lesean McCoy, for his involvement in a brawl that occurred last February. The brawl, which left two police officers injured, is now a closed investigation according to the Pennsylvania attorney general’s office. Philadelphia District Attorney Seth Williams says McCoy wouldn’t be charged in the incident, due to their inability to prove who initiated the February fight in the Philadelphia nightclub. Williams also mentioned that it’s legal to act in self-defense or the defense of others.
The attorney general’s office did decide to review Williams’ decision not to charge McCoy. Police say that the brawl started over a misunderstanding about who bought a $350 bottle of champagne, while ESPN writes, “McCoy’s Philadelphia defense attorney, Dennis Cogan, said McCoy was only trying to break up a fight between the officers and his friends, who had started arguing over a $350 bottle of champagne.” McCoy played for the Bills last season after six years with the Philadelphia Eagles.
