McCoy’s Publicist: Charges ‘Completely, Unequivocally False’
Update: LeSean McCoy’s publicist has released the following statement.
“The allegations against LeSean McCoy are completely, unequivocally false. 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”
A woman has filed a court claim, alleging that Eagles running back LeSean McCoy and his bodyguard assaulted her on a party bus, according to Courthouse News Service.
Per the report, McCoy, three other men and his bodyguard took a trip to New York City on a party bus on Dec. 18, 2012. On the ride home, McCoy sprayed the women with water.
When the woman protested, McCoy instructed his bodyguard to “get her.” The bodyguard and/or McCoy struck the woman in the face, poured a liquid on her, dragged her and pushed her.
McCoy then instructed the driver to pull over on the New Jersey Turnpike, while he and the bodyguard tossed the woman off the bus. After some of the guests complained, they brought the woman back on the bus. They then drove to a rest area and left her there.
The woman is seeking more than $50,000 in compensatory damages and punitive damages for assault and battery, intentional infliction of emotional distress, false imprisonment and negligence.
This isn’t the first time McCoy has made headlines for the wrong reasons this offseason. In January, he and the mother of his child engaged in a very public spat on Twitter that McCoy eventually apologized for.
