Lawyers, Todd J. Hollis, he told KDKA on Pittsburgh television his client, DeVincent Spriggs, said he wanted to apologize for appearing after a video of Sunday morning’s incident showing that he came to Donald Spriggs’ aid while Spriggs was being kicked and punched.
“I wanted to make this statement public. And I want to apologize to Aaron for what he experienced, but I know clearly that that wasn’t him,” Hollis said.
Hollis Gary Klein of the Los Angeles Times said that he, too, had misidentified Donald.
“I think the person who was involved in the altercation after watching the video was not Aaron Donald,” Hollis told Klein. “He was someone who looked like him.”
Hollis told Klein that he needed to correct himself quickly.
“We made these allegations in public, so I think once I received the information that he wasn’t the same, I think I had to be public with that too and I had to do it right away later,” Klein said of Hollis.
Hollis he said at a news conference Wednesday He intended to file criminal charges against Donald.
In a video acquired by Pittsburgh TV WPXI on Friday, Donald Spriggs was seen walking away from people who were attacking him.
