Phil DiLucente said his client Daniel Adelman is "not in good shape," per WTAE, and has not decided if he's going to bring a lawsuit. Meanwhile, the FBI in Pittsburgh confirmed to the Post-Gazette that it is looking into the arrest. Mayor Bill Peduto said in a statement the city "welcomes" the FBI's review.
