PHILADELPHIA (AP) — The Pennsylvania attorney general’s office is reviewing a district attorney’s decision not to charge Buffalo Bills running back LeSean McCoy in a Philadelphia nightclub fight that left two off-duty police officers injured.
Solicitor General Bruce Castor said Monday that he met last week with detectives after getting a written request from the president of the police union in Philadelphia.
Castor says that despite spending decades as a prosecutor, he wasn’t aware of the rarely used review procedure. It requires approval from a judge to transfer the case from county prosecutors to the attorney general.
Castor described the likelihood of that occurring as “pretty remote.”
Police say a fight broke out Feb. 7 over who had purchased a $350 bottle of Champagne. One officer suffered a broken nose and broken ribs.
