“Lorenzo Mauldin is completely innocent and has been cleared of all wrongdoing,” said his lawyer Alex Spiro.


Lopez, who is 5-foot-4 and 145 lbs. filed a lawsuit against the 6-foot-4 and 259 lbs. Mauldin, claiming that the assault left him hospitalized and disfigured.


“Once again, the Manhattan DA Cyrus Vance treats those with money and fame differently than the rest of the county’s citizens,” said Lopez’s lawyer Glenn Race. “Fortunately, Mr. Mauldin’s wealth will not shield him from liability when a Queens jury gets to hear what he did to our client.”
