Charges are expected to be filed against former Philadelphia Eagle LeSean McCoy, according to NBC10 sources.

McCoy, who currently plays for the Buffalo Bills, and former NFL running back Curtis Brinkley were involved in an altercation with two off-duty Philadelphia police officers at an Old City nightclub this weekend, according to a police report obtained by NBC10. The incident occurred at Recess around 2:45 early Sunday morning, police said.

According to the police report, there was “a dispute over the purchase of champagne” between the men when “[Brinkley] grabbed the bottle.” That touched off an altercation between McCoy, Brinkley, Tamarcus Porter, Christopher Henderson and the two off-duty officers, according to the report.

Philadelphia police said one of the off-duty officers was punched, knocked to the ground, kicked and stomped on by all four of the suspects. He suffered a broken nose, broken ribs and other injuries.
