A source close to LeSean McCoy told Vic Carucci of the Buffalo News that an off-duty officer instigated the fight.

Another day, another report on LeSean McCoy.

It seems that there is a new report daily in regards to a Philadelphia brawl involving Buffalo Bills running back LeSean McCoy. Yesterday, a report surfaced that McCoy sucker punched one of the off-duty officers. Today, Vic Carucci of The Buffalo News reported that one of the off-duty officers instigated the brawl.

According to a source close to McCoy, one of the off-duty officers approached McCoy's table. The story continues that the officer believed the bottle of champagne that was given to McCoy's party was meant for the officers. 

Carucci's story then says the following occurred:

Butler walked over to McCoy’s table, and grabbed a bottle of champagne that the police officer believed was ordered for their table, the source said.

Porter then confronted Butler, and the two began fighting.

When McCoy saw that Butler had his hands around Porter’s neck, the source said, McCoy jumped in and threw a punch at Butler that missed.

The story from a source close to McCoy does explain the "sucker punch" that McCoy may have thrown, but it also shows that one of the off-duty officers is responsible for starting the fight.
