The Buffalo Bills and the Bills Mafia fan base can breathe a sigh of relief now that they know their star RB LeSean McCoy won’t be charged over a Philadelphia nightclub brawl that sent a few off-duty police to the hospital.

 

In a Monday afternoon news conference at his office, District Attorney Seth Williams said that due to conflicting accounts about what happened at Recess Lounge around 2:45 a.m. Feb. 7, there was “insufficient evidence” for criminal charges against McCoy, three of his friends, or three off-duty police officers.

“It is our job to charge the right people and only charge them with the right crimes,” Williams said, adding: “I am very satisfied that we did the right thing.”

John J. McNesby, president of the Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 5, blasted Williams, saying in a statement that “a vicious assault on off-duty police officers by a rich athlete and his friends goes completely unpunished.”

“Serious and permanent injuries were inflicted on these officers as a result of a brutal assault captured on film, but a season-ticket hunting District Attorney refuses to do his sworn job and prosecute the attackers,” the statement said.

Police have said the fight broke out over a misunderstanding about who had bought a $350 bottle of Champagne.
