It took less than a month into the offseason for all of that to change. McCoy got into a very public fight with the mother of his child on Twitter in the early morning hours of January 27th. He went as far as to call her names and beseech the help of his Twitter followers to harass her.
It was certainly a black eye and McCoy worked over the last few months to restore his image. It seemed to be working until today.
TMZ is reporting that a Philadelphia woman is suing McCoy for "assault and battery, intentional infliction of emotional distress, false imprisonment and negligence" that reportedly occurred on December 18, 2012 when he kicked one of 15 women off a party bus on the New Jersey Turnpike. The woman is reportedly looking for $50,000 worth of damages because "she suffered head trauma, a disc protrusion on her spine, bad sprains, contusions and bruises all over her body, and severe shock" according to the report.
Eagles beat writer Jeff McLane tweeted today that McCoy does not dispute that he kicked the woman who sued him off the bus but disputes the rest of the accusations.
McCoy, 24, rushed 200 times for 840 yards and two touchdowns last season in 12 games. McCoy missed four games due to a concussion.
