Reports are emerging that former Philadelphia Eagle LeSean McCoy was involved in a violent altercation with off-duty Philly cops over the weekend.

McCoy, now a Buffalo Bill was with three other men — including Curis Brinkley, a former San Diego Chargers, according to theDaily News— when he got into the fracas after their group tried to claim one of four bottles of champagne the three officers had just purchased.

“An argument ensued as to the ownership of a bottle of champagne, which led to pushing and shoving,” police said.

All four men attacked one off-duty cop, police said, pushing and knocking him to the ground.

“While on the ground he was punched, kicked and stomped about his body and head multiple times by all four suspects,” police said.

Another cop and club security tried to break up the fight before all the men were ejected from the club.

The officer who was knocked down and stomped transported himself to the hospital. He sustained a broken nose, broken rib, a laceration to his right eye and a sprained thumb, police said.

The second officer who intervened in the fight, along with club security, was hospitalized and received eight stitches over his left eye and is currently receiving treatment for a possible skull fracture.

Police did not identify the officers involved in the fight or the assailants.

According to ABC, the fight occurred Sunday in Old City at the Recess nightclub around 2:30 a.m.

No arrests have been reported.

“The suspects are reported to be members of the National Football League,” police said.

Video surveillance reportedly shows the cops being ejected from the club, but did not capture the fight itself.

The Bills released a statement that they are “aware” of the report about McCoy and are “in the process of gathering more information.” They declined to make any further comments.
