LeSean McCoy is being sued by a woman who claims the Eagles running back and his body guard humiliated and assaulted her on a party bus, according to TMZ.

The plaintiff, who filed the suit under the name "Mary Roe," alleges on Dec. 18, 2012, she was among 16 women invited by McCoy's publicist to a party at a New York City nightclub, with transportation from Philadelphia on a party bus.

The lawsuit alleges McCoy, his bodyguard Big John and other men in the bus began to spray some of the women with water.

Roe claims she protested the water spraying, after which McCoy ordered Big John to "get her." She claims McCoy and/or Big John hit her in the face, causing her to fall to the ground. That's where the men allegedly restrained her and poured a beverage over her hair, body and clothes.

She claims her protests led McCoy and Big John to forcibly eject her from the party bus on the side of the New Jersey Turnpike. When other women complained, she was allowed back on the bus until she could be left at the nearest rest stop.

The plaintiff is seeking damages of more than $50,000 for assault and battery, intentional infliction of emotional distress, false imprisonment and negligence.

“The allegations against LeSean McCoy are completely, unequivocally false," a rep for LeSean McCoy said in a statement. "There are no criminal charges pending and no probable cause was ever found. This is sadly an attempt to extract money and LeSean will vigorously defend any attempt to collect money through a personal injury claim."
