GRAND CHUTE, Wis. - The 12-year-old boy who lost a Donald Driver cleat to a woman who ripped it away now has plenty of Green Bay Packers memorabilia.

A video of Driver tossing his cleats into the crowd after a charity softball game in Grand Chute has been popular on the Internet. Driver said he was trying to toss a cleat to Stephen Wagner but a woman wrestled it from the boy.

So Driver turned to Twitter to find Stephen, arranged to meet him and greeted the boy with some autographed Packers gear, including a pair of cleats.

WTMJ-TV (http://bit.ly/LkGRxG ) reports that Stephen's mom, Mary Wagner, says the woman in the video called to apologize. She explained she thought Driver was throwing the cleat to her. The Ripon family says no hard feelings.
