According to 6abc, LeSean McCoy and a friend assaulted two off-duty police officers this past weekend. Here’s what the report says:

Sources tell Action News that two off-duty Philadelphia police officers were assaulted by former Eagles player LeSean McCoy.

Both officers were hospitalized as a result of the incident.

It happened around 2:30 a.m. Sunday at the Recess Lounge located at 125 South 2nd Street in Old City.

It was there that McCoy, and a friend, were involved in a physical altercation with the two officers, sources said.

Sources also say that while McCoy and his friend were not arrested, they are the focus of the investigation.

A police report was made at the time the incident took place, those sources added.

Action News has reached out to McCoy’s agent for comment.

We will update this post as more information becomes available.

UPDATE: Here are some updates from Dave Schratwiester of FOX 29.

UPDATE II: CSN Philly’s John Gonzalez with the update from the police report.

The incident occurred at Recess around 2:45 a.m. Sunday, according to the report.

The report states that officers Darnell Jessie, Roland Butler and Sergeant Daniel Ayers purchased four bottles of champagne that evening. When Butler “moved to another location with his bottle,” former Pitt football player Tamarcus Porter “approached him and tried to pull the bottle from his hand.” According to the report, “an argument ensued as to the ownership of the bottle,” at which point McCoy, Brinkley and Christopher Henderson “assisted [Porter].” During the ensuing altercation, according to the report, Butler was knocked to the ground and “punched, kicked and stomped about his body and head multiple times.”

A law enforcement official told CSNPhilly.com that two of the officers suffered broken ribs. According to the report, Butler transported himself to Delaware County Memorial Hospital, where he was treated for a laceration to his right eye, a broken nose, broken ribs and a sprained thumb. Jessie was admitted to Hahnemann Hospital where he received stitches over his left eye and treatment for a possible skull fracture.

Video surveillance from outside showed both parties being ejected from the club, according to the report. A camera inside the club where the incident occurred “was not functional.”

Spokesmen for the Philadelphia Police Department and the Buffalo Bills did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

UPDATE III:  PhillyInfluencer.com has learned that Philly rapper, Meek Mill, who was just ordered by the judge to go on house arrest (which doesn’t start until March 1) this week for violating probation, was in fact at Recess on the night of February 7th. Multiple sources say that Meek was in the VIP section that night. This story continues to take many turns and now it now puts Meek in the spotlight.

    I’ll keep my opinion until more of the story comes out because far too frequently the early reports are completely wrong. That said, please keep in mind that off duty police officers are regular people, and they can drink as much as anyone else. It’s entirely possible all five of the people involved are just idiots.

    I was looking at pics from the Wingbowl and I noticed El Wingador in some of them. Why did this drug lord get out early when black men are doing years and years for the same crime. It’s really pathetic that el wingador is a free man. It’s a joke
