Despite the fact that there’s video of Buffalo Bills running back LeSean McCoy assaulting three off-duty Philadelphia police officers, his lawyer Dennis Cogan claims he’s innocent.
“We trust that they are really taking time to consider all the surrounding circumstances,” Cogan said, via Pro Football Talk. “But I’m here to say and I’m telling you that McCoy did nothing wrong, nothing wrong. And he was sober. The questions will have to be asked about the conditions of other people.”
The Philly PD is still investigating the incident and Vic Carucci of the Buffalo News says a source told him that the investigation shouldn’t take this long.
“It’s truly extraordinary to have this kind of a delay in this kind of case,” a source close to the investigation told Carucci. “It’s not a six-month investigation where there’s wire taps and surveillance and confidential informants placed inside of a drug organization. This is, essentially, a simple bar fight. And it raises all sorts of questions about the extent to which the prosecutor’s office is confident in the information that’s been provided them.”
With the investigation taking this long, you have to wonder if McCoy might be innocent.
Only time will tell.
