A lawyer filed a criminal complaint against Pittsburgh Police's Aaron Donald, a traffic reckless in the Los Angeles Rams, on Wednesday, saying that defensive interference and others assaulted his 26 - year - old client at a club after hours last weekend.
The lawyer Todd J. Hollis stated that his client, Devsnet Spriggs, needed 16 stitches and suffered a fractured orbital bone in his head, a broken nose, a twist or a broken arm in a bar on East Carson Street on the south side of town.
Hollis released a photo that showed Spriggs with facial injuries and swelling. Donald played college football at the University of Pittsburgh. The Rams said they were looking into the matter.
Hollis and Spriggs filed a criminal complaint with the Pittsburgh police on Wednesday.
Hollis said: "They have conducted a preliminary investigation and will look into it and come back to us as soon as they get more information."
Police released a publication saying they were called early Sunday afternoon to Mercy Hospital, where a man with facial and arm injuries told them he accidentally hit someone in a Southside bar.
”He says that male and another ended up punching and kicking him,” police wrote. ”The complainant admits to throwing a bottle of alcohol, but didn’t know if he had hit anyone.”
Donald, 29, is a Pittsburgh-born college player who stars at home, where he trains mostly during his vacation. He also has a lot of charity work in the area.
Donald was named best defensive player in the American Football League (AFL) at the Associated Press in February, the third time he had earned the distinction. He played college football at the University of Pittsburgh.
The Los Angeles Rams released a statement saying the team was aware of the reports about Donald and was gathering more information. The Panel refrained from commenting.
