Philly DA’s office: Report of no McCoy charges “utterly wrong”


The Philadelphia District Attorney’s office is refuting an earlier report by Vic Carucci of the Buffalo News that said Bills running back LeSean McCoy won’t face charges stemming from a Super Bowl Sunday nightclub fight.

District Attorney’s Office Spokesman Cameron Kline told Joe Buscaglia of WKBW in Buffalo that report is “utterly wrong” and that the investigation is ongoing.

McCoy and former NFL running back Curtis Brinkley were involved in an early-morning Philadelphia nightclub fight that ended with off-duty police officers being hospitalized.

McCoy was scheduled to meet with the district attorney earlier this week.

The NFL began investigating the incident immediately after news of it emerged. The Bills have said nothing beyond a standard team statement that they’re aware of the incident.

    If it’s not from Adam Schefter… It’s false!!! Ask JPP

    The DA, Mayor and cops that were involved in all of this are turds.

    somebody didnt get paid.

    Carucci following the new age journalism dictum of it’s more important to be first than correct?

  5. nhpats says: Feb 25, 2016 1:50 PM

    When will the Bills do the right thing and cut this schmuck?

  6. leafsfins says: Feb 25, 2016 1:56 PM

    He should have to spend a weekend with chip Kelly

  7. PegulaBucks says: Feb 25, 2016 1:56 PM

    Leave it to the Buffalo News to report something wrong…they have no sources…

  8. buffobeel42 says: Feb 25, 2016 2:00 PM

    C’mon, we all know the copS started it. That’s why they aren’t charging Shady with assault. They are trying to decide if they can get him for mischief or disturbing the Peace. They are working hard to make something stick, so the off duty cops don’t look like complete d-bags!

  9. torchamundo says: Feb 25, 2016 2:07 PM

    It’s funny how the cops get mad when files aren’t charged…

  10. rabidbillsfan says: Feb 25, 2016 2:13 PM

    Well, there is the nail. No turning back now. The defenses legal team had better be top-notch or somebody is going to have egg on their face. Well, for all of the haters, there will be charges. Whether or not they actually have a leg to stand on is a totally different story.

  11. footballfanatic says: Feb 25, 2016 2:13 PM

    I’m a bills fan, but i hope he doesnt pay to get out of this scott free. Im tired of seeing athletes getting out of trouble. He was in a fight, based on the videos- he could have 100% avoided it.

  12. stylzinc says: Feb 25, 2016 2:13 PM

    I kinda want this case to go to trial just to hear under oath what motivates 40 year old low level cops to buy 1000 bottles of alcohol & brawl at 3am.

  13. whitewalkerinphilly says: Feb 25, 2016 2:31 PM

    Well, I guess there will be something.

    Maybe what McCoy’s people heard was that there would be no felony charges. That’s what the FOP was pushing hard for.

    Either that, or the DA’s office wasn’t ready for that piece of information to leak and now they’re scrambling after getting a number of angry phone calls.

  14. patsbrat says: Feb 25, 2016 2:32 PM

    What are the odds that the incorrect info was leaked from the NFL offices? I think pretty good odds…

  15. skinsrock says: Feb 25, 2016 2:35 PM

    Why don’t they just charge him with something simple like disturbing the peace & get it over with. Boys will be boys… I’m sure those Cops were just innocent bystanders.

  16. chrisk61 says: Feb 25, 2016 2:36 PM

    johnny doc did it.

    one of the off duty cops spilled champagne on his preppy scarf

  17. george1859 says: Feb 25, 2016 2:40 PM

    I’m a Bills fan, and I was wrongly arrested one time. The cops and the DA are more crooked than any criminal, and will fabricate anything to protect one another.

    I hope Shady walks free.

  18. grogantomorgan says: Feb 25, 2016 2:41 PM

    More probable than not … no charges will be laid. BTW, Shady needs another check book !

  19. justintuckrule says: Feb 25, 2016 2:44 PM

    Like all Philly fans, the cops were probably taunting him for being an east-west dancer.

    If I am right, prior to this he never got in trouble. How many people have gotten in bar fights? Probably hundreds of thousands, how many of those people lose their jobs? If the officers involved did instigate the fight shouldn’t they be in more trouble than McCoy? as much as I feel professional athletes should be held to higher standards, public servants and law enforcement officers should be held to an even higher standard.

  22. myopinionisrighterthanyours says: Feb 25, 2016 2:54 PM

    Why is everybody in such a hurry here, except the DA? Everybody’s so sure they have the story straight one way or the other, but let the chips fall where they may. Carucci may end up being 100% right … later. He may also be dead wrong, with EVERYBODY in the incident facing charges. Let’s see what the police union and mayor say then if that goes down.

  23. jonathankrobinson424 says: Feb 25, 2016 3:10 PM

    ……this whole debacle makes me yearn for off-season deflate-gate news…….

  24. tylawspick6 says: Feb 25, 2016 3:15 PM

    DIdn’t the Philly DA take a payoff from Marvin Harrison to cover up the attempted murder case he had going on?

    Oh, I think so. Harrison “retired” that offseason after injuring a child with his Belgian made cop killing pistol and he injured another person as he tried to kill him.

    It all sort of just disappeared.


  25. blowfishes says: Feb 25, 2016 3:17 PM

    Well if the statement was utterly wrong, then there had better be some charges on their way or a defamation of character law suit will probably be filed.

    Why can’t people simply state that they have no statement to make at that time rather than play this game of one upmanship!

  26. painsyndicate says: Feb 25, 2016 3:29 PM

    He already is a criminal and now he has been caught.

    Prosecute to the fullest extent of the law.

  27. 6thsense10 says: Feb 25, 2016 3:35 PM

    Carucci simply reported information he received from a source close to McCoy’s camp. That source could be wrong.

  28. billswillnevermove says: Feb 25, 2016 3:36 PM

    When are the Patriots going to do the right thing and cut that schmuck for running a drunken booze cruise.

  29. skittlesareyum says: Feb 25, 2016 4:11 PM

    I think the strategy of the Philly DA is to sit on this case for a few months until everyone forgets about it, then quietly drop it.

  30. ariani1985 says: Feb 25, 2016 4:12 PM

    Dirty cop gate!

  31. billsboy88 says: Feb 25, 2016 4:19 PM

    The longer this goes on, the worse the cops look

  32. a1b24312 says: Feb 25, 2016 4:50 PM

    put him and the cops in a classroom and make em write something on the blackboard

  33. ohand16 says: Feb 25, 2016 5:23 PM

    Carucci ain’t never been right

  34. TS Johnson says: Feb 25, 2016 6:33 PM

    They’ll charge him with something to appease the cops. It will likely be a misdemeanor, because they likely don’t have enough to make felony charges stick…and once again there’s a good chance the cops started it and no one wants to deal with that tidbit.

    Like I’ve said repeatedly, Shady has a real lawyer, and he will not hesitate to turn over all stones to exonerate his client, and I don’t think the DA’s office REALLY wants that to happen.

    Why is the IDIOT Fraternal Order of Police DOLT Making such a big deal of the fact that they were “off duty” police?!?!?!?!
