Uribe's agent, Martin Arburua, denies that Uribe was involved in Friday night's shooting incident in the Dominican Republic:
"I spoke to a very reliable guy I have in the Dominican, and then I talked to Juan directly. [Juan] said there was an altercation between an Italian guy at the beach adjacent from his property and said that he had nothing to do with it. Juan had spoken to police. I know that he is not hiding from anyone, and he and his family are fine. He didn't seem upset or anything like that. He said he had nothing to do with it and everything was fine."
