Los Angeles Rams defensive tackle Aaron Donald allegedly assaulted a man last weekend, according to a Pittsburgh attorney.
Todd Hollis, who represents De Vincent Spriggs, told KDKA-TV that he intends to file criminal charges on behalf of his client with police after Donald allegedly fought Spriggs between 3-4 a.m. ET on April 11.
Hollis told TMZ Sports the altercation started inside a Pittsburgh nightclub when Spriggs accidentally bumped into Donald. He said an argument ensued with Donald as the aggressor.
The nightclub’s management kicked both men out of the establishment for the clash. It was then Donald allegedly assaulted Spriggs while standing outside the entrance of the club, leaving him badly injured with a broken eye socket.
