Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy will not face charges stemming from a nightclub incident back in February.

McCoy will not be charged over a fight at the Recess Lounge in Philadelphia.

LeSean McCoy will not face any charges for a fight that took place at the Recess Lounge back on February 7. Seth Williams, the Philadelphia District Attorney, stated in a press release that there was “not enough evidence to meet the legal threshold to issue charges.”

“For the past several weeks my office has worked diligently with Philadelphia Police Department’s Central Detectives to investigate this matter and, in the end, there is insufficient evidence to prove that any individual committed a criminal offense,” Williams stated. “My job is not to decide if anyone acted appropriately or not. My job is to determine if evidence exists to charge any individual with a crime. I do that by looking at all the facts. That is what we did here. My decision today is consistent with my commitment to the citizens of Philadelphia to charge, and only charge, those people, who, based on evidence, are guilty of crimes.”

McCoy’s representatives had stated that the Buffalo Bills running back had done nothing wrong shortly after the incident, and today they were vindicated. Although McCoy will not be charged, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell could still suspend McCoy under the personal conduct policy.
