PFT – Bills running back LeSean McCoy hasn’t been arrested yet in the wake of a reported altercation that sent a pair of off-duty police officers to the hospital. That could change, soon. Mark Schwarz of ESPN reported near the top of the 5:00 a.m. ET SportsCenter (so much for me getting up at 5:55 a.m. ET for a 6:00 a.m. ET radio show) that arrest warrants are “imminent” in the case. Citing an unnamed official in the Philadelphia police department, Schwarz says McCoy was “definitely involved,” and that arrest warrants could surface in the next 24-48 hours. The delay results from the high-profile nature of the case, and the involvement of police officers. Both have broken ribs, and one has an orbital fracture. Although they weren’t on duty and didn’t identify themselves as police officers, the system tends to operate a little more zealously when police officers are the victims of criminal conduct.
Still Chip Kelly’s fault.
So Shady and his boys are getting arrested. I’m not going to say the off-duty cops didn’t have anything to do with it because, frankly, we don’t know. But I’ll tell ya what, you get a couple of meatsticks in one famously drunken spot post 2:30 and anything can go down. It wouldn’t surprise me at all if the cops started it and McCoy’s crew ended it. But that’s neither here nor there. The Philly PD has already said they’re coming out and laying the hammer on McCoy & Co.
The real question left is, if Shady can 100% be identified as an assailant in this video, what does Fuhrer Goodell do? We all know the Ray Rice battery case wasn’t a big deal in his mind till the footage came out of him cold-cocking his wife to the next millennium. What’s going to be the punishment if McCoy indeed is stomping out an off-duty cops face on video? Whatever it is, it ain’t going to be light. And it looks like Kiko Alonso may win this trade by default.
