Diggs told police he shot the person because the victim was on top of him and wouldn't stop punching him, charging documents say.

However, he wasn't fearful for his life and should have made a better decision, Diggs allegedly told police.

Surveillance video shows Diggs shoving a woman before getting jumped by several men inside the bar, police said.
