Philly cops file lawsuit against LeSean McCoy over bar fight

FILE - In this Nov. 12, 2015, file photo, Buffalo Bills running back LeSean McCoy, left, is hit by New York Jets defensive end Muhammad Wilkerson during an NFL football game in East Rutherford, N.J. The NFL isn't colorblind to the concerns of its TV audience regarding the "Color Rush" alternate uniforms the Bills and Jets will wear Thursday night, Sept. 14, 2016. That's a switch from last year, when Buffalo wore all red and the Jets all green during their prime-time game on Nov. 12. The combinations led to colorblind viewers complaining they couldn't determine which team was which. (AP Photo/Seth Wenig, File) AP

Bills running back LeSean McCoy didn’t face criminal charges, but he’s still dealing with the effects of a February bar fight.

Two police officers who claim they were injured by McCoy in the altercation have now filed a civil lawsuit.

According to John Barr of ESPN.com, the suit was filed Tuesday morning in the Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas, naming McCoy and three other men.

“Our investigation has confirmed that [officers] Darnell Jessie and Roland Butler were viciously attacked and beaten by LeSean McCoy and the additional defendants,”said Fortunato N. Perri Jr., the attorney for the officers involved in the incident. “As a result of the violent assault, both men have suffered serious and permanent injuries.”

The Recess Lounge, the after-hours club where the incident occurred, was also named as a defendant, saying they served McCoy and his friends “who were already visibly intoxicated.”

The NFL decided to not punish McCoy after a February bar fight, after completing its own investigation.

    “The NFL decided to not punish McCoy after a February bar fight, after completing its own investigation.”

    They concluded that playing for Rex Ryan is punishment enough…..

    Want to talk about social injustice ? Drunk cops, drinking while carrying a weapon, one driving drunk to the hospital. All after attempting to steal a bottle of liquor from another table and they are sueing ? This is social injustice to the max

    Originally, I thought the NFL investigation did not turn up any evidence of an attack of the police. These days, I’m thinking that there was evidence, but “who cares, it’s only police.”

    Take your beating like men and move on.

  7. leftlaneisforpassingonly says: Sep 20, 2016 11:56 AM

    Wait, what? No punishment what so ever by the NFL? Not even a small fine?

    I’m not sure this is a good message from the NFL.

    So he supposedly viciously beat two cops, but wasn’t charged for it?

    CALLING B.S.!!!

    MONEY GRAB!!!

    So, the cops start a fight, get their asses beaten in a bar fight and sue.

    McCoy’s life has been made very public as well any investigation into punishments, and he works for a private corporation. The cops are civil servants and are paid by the taxpayers. Not a peep has been said about any investigation into their actions such as interviews with witnesses or video review. Where’s the internal affairs investigation into their actions and how they could afford multiple bottles of champagne costing thousands on a cop’s salary?

    Perri comes from a long line of Philadelphia Republicans (what few are left). His father, as a Traffic Court judge, famously received probation in 2015 for bribery for fixing Traffic Court tickets in return for shrimp, crab cakes, and porn videos. You can look it up.

    This is a nice little scrum in advance of the next Philadelphia District Attorney’s race.

    There was evidence that the police started it, but that won’t matter to a true patriot such as yourself.

    This lawyer is a well known ambulance chaser in philly…but his first name is a classic… Lol

    The Eagles are 2-0 without McCoy, and without DeSean Jackson. Now we’re hearing someone in the Redskins locker room is already talking smack about their QB. Now McCoy is in trouble. Thank you Chip Kelly.

    I assume by “permanent injuries”, they mean…all of Phillie laughs at these owned clowns when they walk down the street. I hope the judge makes these guys pay McCoy!

    And the DA, who previously was grandstanding, swept it under the rug when it began to turn sour. These guys still have their jobs and weren’t reprimanded in any way or form. This is why things like the Kaepernick awareness protest exists if the common man did this, they’d have the book thrown at them.

    I did look it up. interesting guy. apparently he also pleaded guilty to federal counts of conspiracy, and mail and wire fraud in 2013. his colleagues called him “the terminator” for his harsh penalties.

    Motion to dismiss Granted!

    Keystone cops!

    The NFL has decided to suspend LeSean McC…..wait they play the Patriots twice every year, right?

    The NFL has decided to NOT suspend LeSean McCoy and wishes him the best of luck in Weeks 4 and 8.

    In today’s current climate I’m sure the cops were expected to drop their arms, allow McCoy and his posse to beat the hell out of them, and then apologize to them and black lives matter if any of their knuckles were swollen after the beating.

    Civil lawsuits are the only possible thing one can do to protect themselves from the insane world of the totalitarian left.

    Intetesting that Mr. Perri is opening up his clients to more scrutiny. The Champaign Bandits can now have their character, background and finances examined by the defense. It would be ironic if they lost their jobs, pensions and did some jail time as a result of their buffoonery and greed.??

    What the hell was LeSean McCoy, a fairly prominent NFL star, doing at Recess? That place is SUPER lame!!! Haha

  26. rcali says: Sep 20, 2016 3:30 PM

    Hey everybody, let’s just be happy Shady didn’t shoot himself in the leg while at the bar. NFL Employees are making progress in that department!

  27. happster says: Sep 20, 2016 3:54 PM

    Fortunate Perri Jr.? You mean two mother’s named their poor kid Fortunate?
