Philadelphia Eagles running back LeSean “Shady” McCoy is having quite the off-season. McCoy is in the news again today, and it’s not good at all.
TMZ is reporting that McCoy is being sued for $50,000 by a woman who claims that the running back humiliated her on a party bus by spraying her with beverages, and then after assaulting her, kicked her off the bus on the side of the Jersey Turnpike.
According to the lawsuit filed by a woman using the alias “Mary Roe” … the Philadelphia Eagles RB had invited 15 women to join him on a party bus that went from Philly to a NYC nightclub on December 18, 2012.
During the trip, the lawsuit alleges, McCoy, along with his bodyguard and a couple of other guys, began to spray some of the women with water.
Roe claims she protested the water spraying … so McCoy ordered his bodyguard Big John to “get her.”
In the suit, filed May 10 in Philadelphia, the woman claims McCoy and/or Big John proceeded to hit her the face, causing her to fall to the ground.
While she was on the floor, the men allegedly physically restrained her and poured a beverage onto her hair, clothes and body.
And if things couldn’t get worse … the woman claims McCoy and Big John then forcibly ejected her from the party bus on the side of the New Jersey Turnpike
Roe is suing Shady for more than $50,000 in damages for assault and battery, intentional infliction of emotional distress, false imprisonment and negligence.
Ms. Roe says she suffered head trauma, a disc protrusion on her spine, bad sprains, contusions and bruises all over her body, and severe shock.
McCoys reps have been quite on the issue so far but of course the question is going to be, if McCoy assaulted Ms. Roe, why did she wait so long to formally complain?
