The ex-girlfriend of Buffalo Bills running back LeSean McCoy has filed a personal injury lawsuit against McCoy and his former Pitt teammate, Tamarcus Porter, in Fulton County, Georgia. The documents were filed on Friday and relate to the July 10th home invasion robbery where she was assaulted.
Part of the damages filed is $133,000 worth of jewelry that was taken in the robbery on McCoy’s property.
The lawsuit alleges McCoy changed the security system codes in the house he owned where she resided and “intentionally permitted a hazardous condition to exist on the premises.” According to the papers, “defendants are liable for the assault, battery, and intentional infliction of emotional distress suffered by the Plaintiff.”
The lawsuit doesn’t stop at the security system, though. McCoy’s ex-girlfriend’s lawyer claims the Bills running back played a role in the attack itself:
“Defendant McCoy had actual and constructive knowledge of criminal activity existing on the property on July 10, 2018 due to the direct knowledge of his employee and/or agent, Porter.”
McCoy could also choose to settle out of court to keep any details out of the public eye so he can resume playing football. With no pending criminal charges at this time, this might be the most likely outcome.
