Dog's wife is currently battling a serious form of throat cancer and the incident occurred while they were bringing her home following surgery in Los Angeles.
Duane Lee "Dog" Chapman's attorney vehemently denied that the "Dog the Bounty Hunter" star assaulted a man at Denver International Airport last week.
"There was no assault. A young man approached Dog at the Denver Airport in a very hostile and aggressive manner, clearly looking to start trouble," the Chapmans' family attorney, Andrew Brettler, told People on Thursday. "He insulted Dog and Beth, hurled racial slurs at Dog, and threatened to 'cut' Beth if she could 'get out of her wheelchair.' The Chapmans attempted to distance themselves from this individual, but he followed them to the elevator where he continued to shout profanities at them."
"The Chapmans called for airport security," Brettler continued. "Eventually they were able to get in their vehicle without further incident. According to the Denver P.D., airport surveillance footage show this individual was the aggressor and that Dog did not assault him, as alleged. The Chapmans intend to press charges against this individual and his father for harassment and for disturbing the peace."
A video of the incident, alleged to have occurred on Nov. 30, was obtained by The Blast. The video shows Chapman and his wife, Beth, in an elevator with a baggage handler as a group of men jeer at them from outside the lift.
