Decision Not Expected Today in Possible McCoy Arrest

No decision on a possible arrest warrant for Bills running back LeSean McCoy is expected Thursday, a high-ranking Philadelphia police official told Mark Schwarz of ESPN.

McCoy is part of an investigation into an alleged nightclub assault against off-duty police officers that occurred Sunday. The official told ESPN that the district attorney’s office wanted to be thorough before determining possible charges.

Philadelphia station WPVI reported Wednesday that investigators recommended McCoy be one of the individuals charged with aggravated assault. A Philadelphia police official told Schwarz that McCoy was an active participant in the incident.

A lawyer for McCoy told Outside The Lines’ John Barr on Tuesday that his client will turn himself in if he is charged.

On Thursday, Jack McMahon told ESPN he had withdrawn as McCoy’s attorney. McMahon said he informed the district attorney’s office that McCoy would instead be represented by Philadelphia attorney Larry Krasner, who has not responded to requests for comment.

A source close to the investigation told ESPN that the off-duty police officers will face no internal disciplinary charges as a result of the alleged incident.

Philadelphia’s district attorney’s office said Tuesday that it has received the case from police and is reviewing it for potential charges.

A statement released Monday by Philadelphia police said that two off-duty officers, both 40-year-old black men and members of the city’s police department, were injured in a nightclub fight with four black men, ages 26 through 30, around 2:45 a.m. Sunday. CSNPhilly.com reported that a third off-duty officer was also involved in the fight.
