Donald Smart told News 12 Connecticut a different story Sunday and said his client did not attack the dog walker, nor did she leave the scene, he said, because the incident occurred at her home and she stayed there.
He said after police investigated, they decided "to drop the case altogether because the allegations had no merit."
"After they interviewed, they did not feel the need to contact my client and no charges were filed. My client has lived in the neighborhood with her family peacefully for many years. She regrets what happened but at the end of the day she was not the aggressor or the bad actor that she was portrayed to be," Smart said.
Both the client and the dog walker asked not to be identified.
