LeSean McCoy denies party bus suit allegations

New, comments

McCoy's lawyer has labeled the allegations "completely, unequivocally false."

US PRESSWIRE

Earlier today we reported that LeSean McCoy has been sued by a woman in connection with an incident aboard a party bus from Philadelphia to New York. The suit alleges that McCoy had his bodyguard hold the woman down and spray her with water against her will, then threw her off the bus, leaving her on the NJ turnpike.

The woman also claims to have suffered physical injuries as a result of the incident and asking for $50,000 in damages. Police say the woman had no visible injuries when she was interviewed that night.

McCoy's lawyer Andrew M. Smith says his client denies the allegations.

"The allegations against LeSean McCoy are completely, unequivocally false."

Smith continues, "There are no criminal charges pending [against McCoy] and no probable cause was ever found."

McCoy's lawyer says, "This is sadly an attempt to extract money and LeSean will vigorously defend any attempt to collect money through a personal injury claim."

It's notable that the lawyer refers to this as a personal injury claim because that's where the damages alleged come from. The suit claims the woman suffered "major injuries to her head and back -- and bruises all over her body."
