Eagles' McCoy accused of assault

The SportsXchange

Philadelphia Eagles running back LeSean McCoy has been sued for assault following an alleged incident on a "party bus" in December 2012, according to CourthouseNews.com.

Filed in the Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas, the lawsuit seeks more than $50,000 in damages for assault and battery, intentional infliction of emotional distress, false imprisonment, and negligence.

"The allegations against LeSean McCoy are completely, unequivocally false," a representative for McCoy said in a statement. "There are no criminal charges pending and no probable cause was ever found. This is sadly an attempt to extract money and LeSean will vigorously defend any attempt to collect money through a personal injury claim."

The Eagles said they are aware of the incident, but had no comment.

McCoy allegedly rented the vehicle for a trip from Philadelphia to New York City.

The plaintiff, a female suing under the "Jane Roe," claims McCoy and/or his bodyguard struck her in the face, held her down and poured a drink over her, and ejected her from the bus.

Only after others complained about the woman being stranded did McCoy allegedly let her back on the bus but then took her to a rest stop.
