On Thursday, Philadelphia criminal defense attorney Larry Krasner was retained to represent Buffalo Bills running back LeSean McCoy, along with attorney Dennis Cogan, after the former Eagle was allegedly involved in a nightclub assault in the early morning of Sunday, February 7th.
According to a statement released the following day, two off-duty police officers (both 40-year-old black men) were injured in a nightclub fight with four black men, ages 26 through 30, around 2:45 a.m. on Sunday. An argument erupted over ownership of a champagne bottle before it escalated into a scuffle between the two parties.
Attorney Krasner told ESPN Outside The Lines’ anchor John Barr that there would be “nothing before Wednesday” regarding McCoy possibly turning himself in to authorities. If charges are brought upon his client, Krasner informed Barr that McCoy will turn himself in.
The altercation resulted in two off-duty officers being admitted to the hospital. One was treated for a cut to his right eye, a sprained thumb, broken ribs and a broken nose, while the other received eight stitches over his left eye and received treatment the following Monday for a potential skull fracture. Both have been released from the hospital.
TMZ Sports also spoke with attorney Krasner and said that McCoy actually told a reporter that, “I’ll make a statement sooner than later,” as opposed to him admitting he “made a mistake” regarding the incident. While the reporter may have misheard the star running back, attorney Krasner states his client is not admitting any guilt or involvement in the brawl.
The off-duty police officers will not face any internal disciplinary charges as a result of the alleged assault.
