Hard to make out what’s going on here, but this is the only video we’ve seen. Another one apparently exists, and we are currently emailing with the person who claims to have it.
Meanwhile, a source told me that Meek Mill, whose 90-day house arrest starts on March 1, was also at Recess that night, but was not involved in any way and left when the fight broke out. There is a Tweet hinting that he and McCoy were there at the same time:

On Sunday, February 7, 2016, at approximately 2:45am, the Complainants were inside a Nightclub located at 1XX S. 2nd Street. An argument ensued as to the ownership of a bottle of Champaign, which led to pushing and shoving. At this point all below Suspects, engaged in a physical altercation with Complainant#1 who was then punched and knocked to the ground. While on the ground he was punched, kicked and stomped about his body and head multiple times by all four Suspects. Complainant#2 and security guards intervened and broke up the attack and all parties were ejected from the club. Complainant#1 transported himself to the Hospital where he was treated for a laceration to his right eye, broken nose, broken ribs, and a sprained thumb. Complainant#2, was admitted to the Hospital where he received eight stitches over his left eye and is currently receiving treatment for a possible skull fracture. The four suspects were subsequently identified through photographs by the complainants and by the security guards. Video surveillance was recovered from the outside of the club which shows both parties being ejected from the club; however, the incident itself wasn’t captured on video.
The investigation is active and ongoing; all updates will be sent upon availability.
Complainant #1: 40yrs old B/M off Duty Philadelphia Police Officer
Complainant #2: 40yrs old B/M, off duty Philadelphia Police Officer.
Suspect #1: 27yrs old B/M
Suspect #2: 30yrs old B/M
Suspect #3: 27yrs old B/M
Suspect #4: 26yrs old B/M
The complainants in this incident were off duty Philadelphia Police Officers and the Suspect are reported to be members of the National Football League.
John Gonzalez reported that Tamarcus Porter was the aggressor and McCoy hopped in after the fact. A source claiming to have knowledge of the investigation tells us that was very much the case, according to both the officers involved and a Recess security guard. It also sounds like charges will be filed within the next 48 hours.
UPDATE: At least a second video exists. I’ve seen a still of it and it shows a bottle being swung, but it’s unclear who’s doing the swinging.
UPDATE 2: Here’s McCoy at Longhorn Steakhouse just hours before the fight:
