Spriggs’ attorney, Todd Hollis, issued a statement noting that Spriggs mistook Donald during a fight on Pittsburgh’s South Side.

The 26-year-old Spriggs filed a criminal complaint on Sunday with the Pittsburgh police, according to Hollis.

He initially claimed he was assaulted by Donald and several others.
