Pennsylvania AG's office to review McCoy case, DA

- Could the LeSean McCoy nightclub brawl case be getting a second look?

The Fraternal Order of Police wants the Pennsylvania Attorney General to look into whether there was any misconduct in the District Attorney's Office.

A letter signed by newly appointed Solicitor General Bruce Castor reads in part that the law "...does provide a mechanism for a judge to overturn a District Attorney's decision and appoint the Attorney General to a case. We are reviewing the law in that area now."

District Attorney Seth Williams declined to prosecute former Eagle and current Buffalo Bills running back LeSean McCoy in a night club fight that left two off-duty officers injured. One of the officers suffered a broken nose and ribs.

Williams has said there is not enough evidence to prosecute because he can't determine who started the fight, which allegedly began over a bottle of champagne.

But, FOP President John McNesby says the decision was a case of preferential treatment towards a well-known athlete.

Attorney general Kathleen Kane's office will review the evidence to look at whether there was abuse of prosecutorial discretion.

It has previously been reported that the NFL is not expected to discipline LeSean McCoy for his role in the incident.
