PITTSBURGH (AP) The attorney for a man who accused NFL star Aaron Donald of assaulting him at a Pittsburgh nightclub last weekend has apologized, saying it was a case of mistaken identity.

Attorney Todd Hollis, who represents DeVin�cent Spriggs, told Pittsburgh reporters Friday that his client mis�took someone else for Don�ald dur�ing the al�ter�ca�tion. He said his client had believed Donald was responsible, but after reviewing the tapes, "I realized that it was not Aaron Donald."

"I certainly extend an apology to Aaron for any problems this may have caused him," Hollis said. "Aaron has certainly been through enough so we want to put this to rest."
