Mother of LeSean McCoy's son alleges he was abusive

The mother of LeSean McCoy's son says she agreed to defend the Buffalo Bills running back against an allegation he abused the boy even though she says she knew the accusation was true.

In a three-page document filed in Fulton County State Court in Georgia, Stephanie Maisonet said Tuesday she reluctantly agreed to the deal in exchange for McCoy offering to drop a custody case and allow her to enroll their 6-year-old son in a school in Miami.

Maisonet says she previously filed a report with child services — she did not say where or when — after her son would come home bruised and crying after visiting McCoy.

McCoy calls Maisonet's allegations "provably false, outrageously inaccurate and offensive," in a statement on his Twitter account.
