Woman’s lawyer: McCoy or­ches­trated as­sault

AT­LANTA — The lawyer for the ex-girl­friend of NFL star LeSean McCoy says the Buf­falo Bills run­ning back or­ches­trated an at­tack that left her bloody amid at­tempts to get her to leave his sub­ur­ban At­lanta man­sion.

At­tor­ney Tanya Mitchell Gra­ham says in a state­ment to news out­lets that her client was phys­i­cally as­saulted Tues­day morn­ing by a man who en­tered the home with no signs of forced en­try. The man de­manded spe­cific items of jew­elry that had been gifted to her from McCoy, who had re­quested them back on many oc­ca­sions.

The As­so­ci­ated Press is not iden­ti­fy­ing the woman, pend­ing fur­ther de­tails of the at­tack.

McCoy and the woman have been in court over his at­tempts to evict her from the home.

An im­age of the ex-girl­friend’s blood­ied and beaten face was shown in a so­cial me­dia post blam­ing McCoy for the as­sault. The foot­ball player de­nied the al­le­ga­tions Tues­day.

Aguilar, Se­gura win on­line vote for fi­nal All-Star spots

Milwaukee Brew­ers first base­man Je­sus Aguilar and Seat­tle Mariners short­stop Jean Se­gura won the fi­nal two ros­ter spots for next week’s All-Star Game in Wash­ing­ton.

Ma­jor League Base­ball re­leased the re­sults of on­line bal­lot­ing for the last slot in each league Wednes­day night, with Aguilar draw­ing 20.2 mil­lion votes to se­cure his first All-Star se­lec­tion. His to­tal was the sec­ond-high­est in the his­tory of the All-Star Fi­nal Vote, trail­ing only Justin Turner’s 20.8 mil­lion votes last year.

The 28-year-old Venezue­lan was tied for the Na­tional League lead with 23 home runs and be­comes the fourth Milwaukee player headed to the game. Brew­ers out­field­ers Lorenzo Cain and Chris­tian Yelich had al­ready been cho­sen, along with re­liever Josh Hader.

Se­gura snagged the last Amer­i­can League spot with 13.6 mil­lion votes. He was fol­lowed by Bos­ton Red Sox out­fielder An­drew Ben­in­tendi, New York Yan­kees slug­ger Gian­carlo Stan­ton, Min­nesota Twins out­fielder Ed­die Rosario and Los An­ge­les An­gels short­stop An­drel­ton Simmons.

The 28-year-old Seat­tle short­stop was bat­ting .329 and ranked sec­ond in the ma­jors with 116 hits. He will join Mariners team­mates Nel­son Cruz, Ed­win Diaz and Mitch Haniger at the All-Star Game. Se­gura, who made the NL All-Star squad in 2013 with Milwaukee, is the first Seat­tle player to win the fan vot­ing for the fi­nal spot.

San Fran­cisco Giants first base­man Bran­don Belt fin­ished sec­ond in the NL bal­lot­ing, fol­lowed by Max Muncy of the Los An­ge­les Dodgers, Trea Turner of the Wash­ing­ton Na­tion­als and Matt Car­pen­ter of the St. Louis Car­di­nals.
