Former Eagles running back LeSean McCoy will not face discipline from the NFL for a fight outside a Philadelphia nightclub.
A league spokesperson confirmed to NFL Media that the current Buffalo Bills player won't suffer any punishment, such as game suspensions, for the Feb. 7 incident outside the Recess Lounge in Old City.
The news comes less than a week after the Pennsylvania Attorney General's Office said it would not overturn Philadelphia District Attorney Seth Williams' decision not to prosecute McCoy for the incident, which left two off-duty Philadelphia police officers seriously injured.
The attorney general's office had reviewed the case at the request of John McNesby, president of the Fraternal Order of Police in Philadelphia, who alleged that Williams didn't prosecute McCoy because he "is a prominent professional athlete."
Williams said that there was "insufficient evidence" to prosecute McCoy and said that one of the off-duty officers in the fight was the initial aggressor.
