One of the most controversial pieces of news the last few weeks involves Buffalo Bills running back LeSean McCoy. He was reportedly involved in an altercation with a Philadelphia police officer at a nightclub on February 7, the same night as Super Bowl 50.
Despite major push back from many in the city, including Mayor Jim Kenney, it looks like McCoy won’t be charged in the incident. According to Bills beat writer Vic Carucci, McCoy is expected to avoid charges in the incident.

There have been varying reports on whether charges would be filed, and the district attorney’s office has said there’s no hurry to make a decision. The Fraternal Order of Police accused the district attorney of providing McCoy special treatment.
It looks like he will be using Hall of Fame wide receiver Cris Carter’s advice by always having a “fall guy.” It’s going to be interesting to see what happens over the next few weeks with this.
