A video released by Florida Democratic Rep. Alan Grayson's legal team appears to show his wife pushing or lunging at him – and not the other way around, according to  WESH TV.

The couple are involved in divorce proceedings.

Grayson's wife, Lolita, had accused him of shoving her.

A staff member, Juan Lopez, recorded the couple's back-and-forth on Saturday outside the front door of their house. According to Lopez, Lolita Grayson had "been acting erratically since the filing of the divorce," so the congressman "specifically told me he doesn't want to be alone" with her.

Grayson had gone to the house to visit his children when the incident occurred, according to Lopez.

Grayson's Attorney Mark NeJame described the video as showing the congressman "backing away" from the altercation. "Congressman Grayson was in fact, battered himself, and did nothing illegal, did not strike her, did not strike her at all."

The couple's 18-year-old daughter supported her father's description of the event in a statement released by NeJame. "When my father arrived, my mother became very angry and started yelling profanities at my father. She was being very aggressive and confrontational," she stated.

No one has been charged in the incident.
