Shady McCoy must return money for missed appearance

LeSean McCoy will have to pay up for an autograph appearance he did not make.

The Philadelphia Eagles running back had a civil judgment made against him for $8,180.50 after he did not re-pay money he received in advance for an appearance he did not make.

Sound Shady? Well, it’s happened twice now.

In this instance, McCoy was to appear at a store in Mountain Top, Pa., but when he showed up he saw federal officers inside the store. McCoy split. Turns out, the officers were there to bust the store’s owner for trafficking counterfeit jerseys, according to the Philadelphia Daily News.

Salvatore Argo, the owner of the store, is in jail but he won his judgment against McCoy because he had paid the player in advance and McCoy did not return the money to him.

McCoy was accused of the same thing in March when he received a $2,500 advance to appear at a Wilkes-Barre restaurant and he never made it because he got a flat car. The vehicle the restaurant offered to send to scoop McCoy wasn’t big enough for his entourage.
