Rams defensive tackle Aaron Donald is facing assault charges after allegedly leaving a man with a badly swollen eye.  An attorney for De Vincent Spriggs says his client will be pressing charges after an alleged assault at a Pittsburgh club.

The alleged assault took place last weekend between 3-4 a.m. early Sunday.

From CBS Pittsburgh:

Attorney Todd Hollis provided a picture to KDKA’s Andy Sheehan of a man who appeared to have a swollen eye and cuts on his face and said he would be pressing charges again the NFL star.

Hollis says De Vincent Spriggs, who is the man in the photo, intends to file criminal charges against Donald for an alleged assault in the overnight hours of last weekend, April 10-11. It allegedly happened between 3-4 a.m. at an after-hours club on the city’s South Side.

Just before the noon hour, Hollis and Spriggs, 26, arrived at the Pittsburgh Police Zone 3 station in Arlington to file charges against Donald.

I'm sure there's more to the story.  I highly doubt Donald just picked a random dude and decided to punch him in the eye.  It could have happened, but it's unlikely.

There was probably some sort of disagreement between the two men.  If that was the case, who in their right mind isn't walking away from a potential physical altercation with Donald?
