Maybe he’s nicknamed “Shady” for a reason.
LeSean McCoy is facing a lawsuit from a woman going by the name “Mary Roe,” who is accusing the Eagles running back of assault and battery, intentional infliction of emotional distress, false imprisonment and negligence, according to ESPN.com.
Roe claims that she was invited aboard a party bus that went from Philadelphia to a New York City nightclub on December 18, 2012. Once on board, McCoy and his bodyguard, “Big John,” proceeded to spray the party bus guests with water. When Roe complained, McCoy reportedly ordered Big John to “get her.”
“Big John and/or McCoy then struck plaintiff in the face, causing her to fall to the ground, physically restrained her while she was lying on the ground, poured a beverage onto her hair, clothes, and body, and forcibly dragged and pushed her,” the complaint states. “McCoy ordered the driver to stop on the side of the highway, and after the driver did so, both Big John and McCoy then forcibly ejected plaintiff from the bus.”
When other partygoers on the bus complained about the harsh treatment, McCoy let Roe back on the bus but subsequently left her at a rest stop where she called police. Roe reported the incident to the New Jersey State Police who are involved in the ongoing investigation.
McCoy’s lawyer, Andrew M. Smith, told TMZ.com that the allegations against McCoy are false.
“This is sadly an attempt to extract money and LeSean will vigorously defend any attempt to collect money through a personal injury claim,” Smith said.
Roe is reportedly seeking $50,000 for the damages.
