Johannesburg - Murder-accused Oscar Pistorius reportedly has been involved in an altercation with a fellow club-goer at the VIP nightclub in Sandton.

The Juice said Oscar’s spokesperson, Annelise Burgess, had confirmed the incident.

She told The Juice that the other man had become aggressive towards Pistorius over the trial in which the Paralympian is accused of killing his girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp. Oscar reportedly asked to be left alone and left the club.

However, the other party, Jared Mortimer, had a different slant on the story.

He told The Juice that Pistorius had been drunk and very aggressive.

According to Mortimer, Pistorius had poked him in the chest and bragged that he’d never get the better of him.

Jared says he pushed Oscar and he fell down. That’s when bouncers intervened and Oscar left the club.

Barry Bateman has tweeted that:

OscarPistorius an individual "started to aggressively engage him on matters relating to the trial. An argument ensued.” BB
