LeSean McCoy sued for alleged party bus assault
LeSean McCoy is being sued by a woman who alleges that she joined the Philadelphia Eagles running back on a party bus before being thrown off the ride and humiliated.
TMZ reports that the woman, who is listed as “Mary Roe” in the lawsuit, says she and 14 other women were invited to join McCoy on a party bus from Philly to New York last December. She alleges in her lawsuit that McCoy, his bodyguard, and a few other guys began spraying some of the women with water. She says they specifically went after her after she objected while the bus was on its way back to Philly.
The woman alleges she was hit in the face and fell to the ground where she continued to be sprayed. She claims she was physically restrained and had a drink poured all over her while she was on the ground. The woman says in the suit that she was kicked off the bus but was picked back up after some of the other women complained. The woman says she was eventually ditched again and left at a rest stop along the side of the Jersey Turnpike.
The woman is suing McCoy for more than “$50,000 in damages for assault and battery, intentional infliction of emotional distress, false imprisonment and negligence,” according to TMZ. She says “she suffered head trauma, a disc protrusion on her spine, bad sprains, contusions and bruises all over her body, and severe shock.”
Eagles beat writer Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports that McCoy does not dispute kicking the woman off the bus, but says that the rest of the allegations are false. McCoy’s attorney told TMZ that the allegations are false and that the woman is trying to extort McCoy.
A New Jersey police sergeant tells TMZ that officers did meet with a woman near a rest stop on Dec. 19 and that she mentioned being in an altercation with a male, though she did not name McCoy at first. Officers reportedly did not observe any visible marks or injuries on her body when they examined her.
We know that McCoy has treated women terribly in the past, but the laundry list of complaints seem excessive, and the word from the police seems to weaken the woman’s claims.
