Attorney for man who claimed NFL player Aaron Donald assaulted him apologizes

PITTSBURGH — The attorney for the man who claimed NFL superstar Aaron Donald assaulted him outside a club in Pittsburgh’s South Side has apologized.

Todd Hollis, the attorney for De’Vincent Spriggs, said he reviewed video showing the fight from the club. He said after seeing it, it’s clear that Donald was trying to break up the fight. He said this situation was simply a mix-up.

“I certainly extend an apology to Aaron for any problems this may have caused him. Aaron has certainly been through enough, so we want to put this to rest,” Hollis said.

Hollis said the man who did attack his client somewhat resembles Donald, but he wanted to publicly apologize for the false accusations. He said Spriggs suffered a concussion, broken nose, orbital bone and possibly a broken arm in the fight.

Hollis and his client now plan to bring the right man responsible for the injuries to justice.

“My goal when I began was to seek justice. I consider myself a credible person. I never had any intention of making someone responsible when they’re not responsible,” Hollis said.
