Both officers were hospitalized as a result of the incident.
It happened around 2:30 a.m. Sunday at the Recess Lounge located at 125 South 2nd Street in Old City.
According to the police report, there was “a dispute over the purchase of champagne” between the men when “[Brinkley] grabbed the bottle.” That touched off an altercation, according to the report. A law enforcement official told CSNPhilly.com that two of the officers suffered broken ribs.
A police report was made at the time the incident took place, those sources added. However, reports say that McCoy, and a friend—former Syracuse running back Curtis Brinkely—were involved in a physical altercation with the two officers.
