LeSean McCoy hires defense attorney Jack McMahon as investigation proceeds to DA

LeSean McCoy reportedly hired a prominent defense attorney on Tuesday, as Philadelphia Police finished their investigation of a bar brawl and passed the case on to the District Attorney's office.

Philadelphia police have concluded their investigation into a February 7 bar fight allegedly involving Buffalo Bills running back LeSean McCoy, and the case has now been handed off to the District Attorney's office, which will review the findings and decide on any formal charges, according to multiple media reports on Tuesday evening.

Meanwhile, McCoy has hired well-known Philadelphia defense attorney Jack McMahon to represent him as the situation continues to unfold, according to a report from ESPN.

WKBW's Joe Buscaglia followed up with the DA office, and learned two things: the case is still in review, so charges are unlikely to be leveled on Tuesday; and that no timetable is being offered as to when charges may be filed.

McMahon is a well-known defense attorney in Philadelphia that has been involved in several high-profile cases. He last made major headlines in May of 2015, when he headed up the defense team of six Philadelphia Police officers that had been removed from the force and charged with 26 counts of various forms of corruption.

McCoy, of course, is alleged to have been involved in the brawl that left two off-duty Philadelphia police officers hospitalized with significant injuries this past weekend. If you've missed any of the details of this story thus far, be sure to check in with our StoryStream.
