8:54 AM PT — We just spoke with attorney Todd Hollis who spelled out the allegations against Donald — saying it all started when Spriggs accidentally bumped into Donald inside of a nightclub.
Hollis says both parties were asked to leave the club — and Donald got aggressive with Spriggs outside … ultimately attacking the guy.
Hollis says he has submitted a “formalized statement” to cops — and told us his client is seeking a criminal investigation into Donald.
As for the injuries from the alleged incident, Hollis says Spriggs suffered various lacerations that required 16 stitches — as well as a broken eye socket, broken nose and a serious injury to his arm. He also suffered a concussion and “severe trauma,” Hollis says.
We’re reaching out to Donald’s camp — as well as the L.A. Rams — and we’ll let you know as soon as we hear back.
Aaron Donald is widely regarded as one of the top — if not THE top defensive player in the NFL.
He was named the league’s Defensive Player of the Year in 2017, 2018 and 2020 — and has been selected to the Pro Bowl all 7 years he’s been in the NFL.
In 2018, Donald signed a 6-year contract extension with the Rams worth up to $135 MILLION with $87 million guaranteed.
Donald was a 1st-round pick in the 2014 NFL Draft — following a stellar career at the University of Pittsburgh, where he won the Bronko Nagurski Trophy for being the best defensive player in the country.
29-year-old Donald was born and raised in Pittsburgh — though it’s unclear if he knew the accuser before the alleged attack.
