TMZ Sports has obtained footage of LeSean McCoy’s bar fight that has left two off-duty cops badly injured and McCoy along with former NFL running back Curtis Brinkley under investigation.
According to the police report, two off-duty police officers were hospitalized after a fight broke out at Recess Lounge on Philadelphia early Sunday morning. It appears that McCoy threw at least one punch during the brawl.
Dave Schratwieser of Fox 29 in Philadelphia reported at least one officer suffered a fractured skull, with broken ribs and a broken nose among a list of other injuries. The police report indicates that the altercation began over a bottle of champagne:
The report states that officers Darnell Jessie, Roland Butler and Sergeant Daniel Ayers purchased four bottles of champagne that evening. When Butler “moved to another location with his bottle,” former Pitt football player Tamarcus Porter “approached him and tried to pull the bottle from his hand.” According to the report, “an argument ensued as to the ownership of the bottle,” at which point McCoy, Brinkley and Christopher Henderson “assisted [Porter].” During the ensuing altercation, according to the report, Butler was knocked to the ground and “punched, kicked and stomped about his body and head multiple times.” – CSNPhilly.com
Neither McCoy nor Brinkley have been arrested [yet]. Both are still under investigation for aggravated assault because of the injuries that were sustained. FOX Sports’ Mike Garafolo is reporting that a warrant for McCoy will emerge this week.
The Buffalo Bills released this statement via their twitter account:
“We are aware of the reports regarding LeSean McCoy and are in the process of gathering more information. We will not provide any further comment at this time.”
McCoy spent six seasons with the Philadelphia Eagles before being traded to Buffalo. Brinkley is a Philadelphia native and played for the Chargers and Bears between 2009 and 2013.
