Don’t expect charges to be pressed against LeSean McCoy any time soon. That date keeps getting pushed back. The lawyer for McCoy told NFL Network that no charges will be filed until “at least” Wednesday. The district attorney’s office is taking its time in issuing arrest warrants in connection with the Sunday morning brawl at Recess nightclub in Philadelphia that left two off-duty cops badly injured.
One person who wants to see McCoy punished? The mayor of Philadelphia, Jim Kenney.
“If he wants to stomp our officers and pound our officers, then he needs to pay the price and answer for his actions,” Kenney told CBS Philadelphia.
Kenney has spoken with the police commissioner and is waiting for the district attorney’s office to issue warrants for McCoy and the three other suspects involved. He has seen the video posted of the incident.
“In addition to punches being thrown, there were some kicks that looked as if they were being leveled and that’s unconscionable and it’s cowardly,” Kenney said.
And Kenney isn’t alone.
Earlier this week, the president of the Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 5, John McNesby, told Philly.com: “Our guys look like they got the brunt of it, so we’re waiting to see the outcome of the investigation. Maybe he should stay in Buffalo and carry on like an idiot in Buffalo.”
At some point, McCoy will have his say. For now, his camp is in a holding pattern.
