The Buffalo Bills and one of their star players have been patiently waiting for a conclusion to the investigation from the Philadelphia District Attorney's office -- and that conclusion is now here.

According to the Philadelphia District Attorney's office, Bills running back LeSean McCoy will not be charged for his alleged role in a bar fight in early February. The fight happened in Philadelphia and involved off-duty police officers, but McCoy was cleared of all charges.

As far as the NFL is concerned, any form of discipline for McCoy still needs to be decided upon. The league has said the case is under review in the Personal Conduct Policy, and that there is no timetable on a decision at this time.



This was the original police report on the case:

On Sunday, February 7, 2016, at approximately 2:45am, the Complainants were inside a Nightclub located at 1XX S. 2nd Street. An argument ensued as to the ownership of a bottle of Champaign, which led to pushing and shoving. At this point all below Suspects, engaged in a physical altercation with Complainant#1 who was then punched and knocked to the ground. While on the ground he was punched, kicked and stomped about his body and head multiple times by all four Suspects.  Complainant#2 and security guards intervened and broke up the attack and all parties were ejected from the club. Complainant#1 transported himself to the Hospital where he was treated for a laceration to his right eye, broken nose, broken ribs, and a sprained thumb. Complainant#2, was admitted to the Hospital where he received eight stitches over his left eye and is currently receiving treatment for a possible skull fracture.  The four suspects were subsequently identified through photographs by the complainants and by the security guards. Video surveillance was recovered from the outside of the club which shows both parties being ejected from the club; however, the incident itself wasn't captured on video.
The investigation is active and ongoing; all updates will be sent upon availability.
