    Things aren't getting better for LeSean McCoy.

    Citing sources, ABC-6 Philadelphia is reporting that the district attorney has recommended criminal charges be brought against the Buffalo Bills running back, and warrants are expected to be issued Wednesday or Thursday.

    The charges are expected to include aggravated assault.

    They stem from an incident early Sunday morning at a Philadelphia nightclub, Recess.

    According to the police report, McCoy, former NFL running back Curtis Brinkley and two other men were at the club and argued with two off-duty police officers over the purchase of a bottle of Champagne. The first complainant was punched and kicked to the ground; while on the ground, he was punched, kicked and stomped on his body and head by all four suspects. He brought himself to the hospital and was treated for a cut to his right eye, broken nose, broken ribs and a sprained thumb.
