NEW YORK: Buffalo Bills running back LeSean McCoy will not face charges over his alleged involvement in a nightclub brawl with two off-duty police officers, prosecutors said on Monday (Tuesday in Manila).
There was “insufficient evidence” to charge anyone involved in the February fracas, Philadelphia District Attorney Seth Williams said.
“While it is clear a physical altercation took place and that several people were injured, there is insufficient credible evidence to determine which of the participants were the initial aggressor or whether some participants were acting in self-defense or reasonable defense of another,” he said.
McCoy could still be punished by the National Football League under its strict personal conduct rules.
“The matter remains under review of the Personal Conduct Policy,” the league said.
McCoy and three friends faced an investigation after the fight at a Philadelphia nightclub in the early hours of February 8.
The two off-duty police officers sustained broken ribs and other injuries to the face and body, according to police.
McCoy, 27, played for the Philadelphia Eagles for six seasons before he was traded to the Bills last year.
