McCoy camp calls assault allegations “completely, unequivocally false”

Eagles running back LeSean McCoy has been sued for assaulting a woman on a party bus.  Now that the lawsuit has become public knowledge, McCoy’s camp has responded.

And, like every defendant who ever has been accused of doing something he shouldn’t have done, McCoy’s camp says he didn’t do it.

“The allegations against LeSean McCoy are completely, unequivocally false,” an unnamed member of the McCoy camp told Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer.  “There are no criminal charges pending and no probable cause was ever found.  This is sadly an attempt to extract money and LeSean will vigorously defend any attempt to collect money through a personal injury claim.”

The absence of criminal charges, though relevant to public perception and the overall extent to which the situation could cause problems for McCoy, has no relevance to the civil suit.  It’s a different legal standard, and the lawsuit will proceed until it’s dismissed, settled, or resolved by a judge or a jury.

If the charges are “completely, unequivocally false,” here’s hoping McCoy’s camp extracts money from the plaintiff for legal fees incurred in defending against a false allegation.  Given the presence of multiple witnesses on the bus McCoy allegedly rented to take a group of people from Philadelphia to New York City and back again, there should be enough evidence to move the needle decisively in one direction or the other.

    I don’t believe the story. He’s not fast enough to catch her.

    This is why we have six rings (and counting) and you do not.

    Night out on the town…$7k
    Payment to the “victim”…$50k
    Legal fees…$175k
    Realizing you should have stayed home…priceless

    What makes anyone think a dude known as “Shady” would do such a thing?

  11. abninf says: May 14, 2013 9:29 PM

    15 girls and 5 guys in a party bus. Out freaking standing.

  12. seattlenative57 says: May 14, 2013 10:00 PM

    And he’s nicknamed Shadey, because?

  13. revskip says: May 15, 2013 12:12 AM

    If he is guilty he should not only pay the $50K but should also do some jail time for striking a woman.

    If she is lying and making it up she should have to pay him $50K for besmirching his name and should do some jail time for being a filthy liar who makes untrue accusations against people in the public eye.

    Either way the courts should get to decide what really happened before we condemn either the woman or Shady McCoy.

    Stupid fool for putting himself in a situation where that could happen.
    15 drunk women on a bus to NYC is just asking for trouble.

    5 in a limo to CC Philly club would have been less risky.

    Add this to his baby momma twitter drama, and he is looking like a huge ass.

    This is the second time where we have heard of LeSean getting tied in with the wrong type of ladies.

    Before it was baby momma dramma, now he is leaving skeezers on the side of the road.

    this dude needs to get it together,, cause as always, where there is smoke, there is fire.

    maybe that’s another reason that chip is holding a stable of 5 more than capable RB’s..
