It appears Rams defensive tackle Aaron Donald will be facing an assault charge in Pittsburgh.

Lawyer Todd Hollis told KDKA that he is filing an assault charge against Donald on behalf of his client De Vincent Spriggs. Hollis said he will file those charges at Pittsburgh Police Zone 3.

According to Hollis, Spriggs was allegedly assaulted early last Sunday between 3 and 4 a.m. He also provided a picture that shows Spriggs with his right eye swollen shut, but there aren’t other details about the alleged incident.

Donald grew up in Pittsburgh and attended the University of Pittsburgh before being drafted by the Rams with the 13th overall pick in the 2014 draft.

  1. You know, it’s been said before, nothing good happens when you’re out that late. I think some guys see an NFL player as a target to show how tough they are, and also, hey, look at my black eye, give me some money.

  2. A black eye is the only “proof”?????

    No, that’s not the only EVIDENCE. There’s more. Be sure of it.

  3. Mr. Spriggs shot off his mouth between 3 and 4am and he caught an elbow from Mr. Donald… Maybe Mr. Spriggs should go to bed earlier. And not be such a big cry-baby in the morning.

    Who in their right mind picks a fight with Aaron Donald?

    Someone who is looking for a HUGE payday..

  5. Certainly, as other people have commented, being out after 12:30 am, NOTHING good every happens. Get your drink on, have your fun and then get home and stay out of trouble.

  6. If I saw Aaron Donald coming my way at 3 am, I would run as fast as I could in the opposite direction…

  7. U don’t consult a mouthpiece b4 u call 911 and make a report. The report should be made immediately after the crime is committed. Donald would have been smart to have had a report made first, guy attacked him and he threw a punch. Doesn’t want to press charges but wants it on the record as to what happened. The judicial system works both ways. Then it’s up to the police to figure out what happens if black eye guy shows up wanting to make a report.

  8. Looks like the guy got hit square and you can see he’s wearing a sling. That’s not to say he didn’t start it or Donald didn’t act in self defense, but he clearly got the worst of that “bump”.
