The Rams have acknowledged the recent accusation that defensive tackle Aaron Donald assaulted a man over the weekend, while refraining from saying anything substantive about the case.

“We are aware of the reports regarding Aaron Donald. We are collecting more information and will have no further comment at this time,” the Rams said in a statement.

An attorney representing a man named De Vincent Spriggs says that he is filing charges against Donald, claiming that Donald assaulted him between 3 a.m. and 4 a.m. on Sunday.

The attorney released a picture showing Spriggs with his eye swollen shut.

The alleged assault took place in Pittsburgh, where Donald grew up and played his college football.

  1. Between 3 and 4 am huh?… He struck you out of nowhere… Probably for no reason at all. I’ll settle for $150,000. My neck AND my back.

  2. It’s guy code you don’t press charges after a fight. If your hospitalized cause dude and his buddies kicked you while you were down, that’s different., but if you get into an altercation and lose one on one. Take your lumps and chalk it up as a learning experience.

  3. From everything I have heard about Donald, is that he is a stand up guy. A swollen eye, I think this guy should consider himself lucky. He probably went at Donald looking for a paycheck. If Donald went at him, he would be looking a lot worse.

  4. I hope the “collection of facts” results in Donald being exonerated. If not, I think he should be not only charged criminally, he should be suspended for two games. The two games for the suspension to be set as soon as the Seahawks v. Rams games are scheduled.

  5. Dude is a straight up bully and should know better. Suspend for a year and PAY THE MAN

  6. There must be witnesses. The why,how,and where kind of info would sure be nice to know.
