Rams ’Aaron Donald has been charged with assault at the Pittsburgh club after alleged incidents
Aaron Donald has allegations of assault after a man said he was involved in an incident with the Rams defensive line at an hour-long club.
Pittsburgh attorney Todd Hollis said KDKA-TV De Vincent Spriggs intends to file criminal charges on behalf of his client, allegedly assaulted by Donald and others on Sunday, from 3 a.m. to 4 p.m. Hollis handed a photo to KDKA-TV’s Andy Sheehan showing the injuries Spriggs allegedly suffered at a club on the South Side of Pittsburgh as a result of the incident.
