LeSean McCoy was the target of some criticism earlier this week when a restaurant in Philadelphia posted a photo on Facebook of the Eagles running back’s receipt after he ate at the establishment. The receipt, which was from a burger joint called PYT, revealed that McCoy left a 20-cent tip on a $61.56 bill.
Les Bowen of The Philadelphia Daily news later noted that his understanding of the situation was that McCoy was very angry with the service he received. PYT’s owner then posted a lengthy message on Facebook claiming that McCoy received “impeccable service” and that he and his friends were “verbally abusive” toward the staff.
It’s a classic case of “he said, she said,” and we’ll probably never know which side is telling the truth. None of that matters to Charlie Sheen, who has offered to step in and give the waiter who served McCoy $1,000 bucks.
dear Tommy Up at PYT in Philly. Please tell Rob K I'm pledging 1000 dollars to him for the tip debacle just wanna help. c #NoJudgement

Charlie hasn’t been in the news much since his whole “winning” thing quickly died out, so he was probably looking to capitalize on an easy PR opportunity. Tommy — or whoever waited on McCoy and company — should made sure they hold him to it. Something tells me people like Sheen have trouble remembering things.
