(Philadelphia) -- The state attorney general's office has dismissed its investigation of a fight involving Buffalo Bills running back LeSean McCoy in a Philadelphia nightclub that left two off-duty police officers injured. 

Solicitor General Bruce Castor said in April he decided to review the case after getting a request from the president of the police union in Philadelphia.

District Attorney Seth Williams had earlier said he wouldn't charge McCoy, who is a Harrisburg native.

He said he couldn't prove who initiated the fight. 

In a letter to union president John McNesby dated July 7, Castor says he thoroughly reviewed the case and his office won't be taking it over. 

Police say a fight broke out in February over who had purchased a $350 bottle of Champagne.

One officer suffered a broken nose and broken ribs.
