Eagles star RB LeSean McCoy was recently sued for assaulting a woman on New Year’s Eve. He has not been arrested and no criminal charges appear imminent, so don’t expect a suspension unless the situation gets more complicated. McCoy admitted to kicking a woman off his party bus, but the woman alleges that he assaulted her before he did so. She is suing him for $50,000 in damages.
It’s fairly common for women to sue professional athletes, so it’s hard to judge McCoy’s character based on this incident. A nasty exchange with an ex-girlfriend on Twitter, however, suggests that he can be less than gentlemanly at times. Unless charges turn criminal, McCoy shouldn’t miss any time or be negatively affected by the ordeal.
