Philadelphia Eagles running back LeSean McCoy is being sued by a woman who alleges McCoy and one of his bodyguards (known only as Big John) assaulted her and then abandoned her during a bus ride home from a New York City nightclub in December.
The bus, operated by Premier Luxury Rentals, carried McCoy, his entourage, and 15 women to New York City on December 18th, 2012. On the return trip, the complaint alleges “McCoy and some of the male guests began to spray the female guests, including the plaintiff, with water.” After resisting, the woman claims she was abandoned on the New Jersey Turnpike:
“When plaintiff protested, McCoy directed 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. 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.
After some of the guests complained about the ejection of plaintiff from the bus, Big John and McCoy forcibly placed her back into the bus and pushed her into a seat. When the bus stopped at a service area … plaintiff told McCoy the she had called the police. The party bus resumed its trip, leaving the plaintiff stranded at the rest stop. After reporting the assault to New Jersey State police, plaintiff needed to take two trains back to Philadelphia.”
TMZ reports the woman is seeking $50,000 in damages from McCoy, the bodyguard, and Premier Luxury Rentals for “assault and battery, intentional infliction of emotional distress, false imprisonment and negligence. Roe says she suffered head trauma, a disc protrusion on her spine, bad sprains, contusions and bruises all over her body, and severe shock.”
