'Swamp People' Stars

Beer Bottle Allegations Are BS

That Guy Attacked Us

The father/son gator huntin' duo from "Swamp People" are no bottle-smashing bad guys ... in fact, they were the REAL victims in a mini-mart attack in Louisiana last week, so says a rep for the reality stars.

As we previously reported, R.J. and Jay Paul Molinere were arrested this weekend after an altercation with a 24-year-old man that began on a nearby highway. The guy claimed the Molineres followed him into a nearby market and broke a beer bottle over his head.

But the Molineres claim they did NOTHING wrong ... and their rep says they were merely the victims in an aggravated assault carried out by "someone who is now seeking fame and notoriety."

The rep adds, "It's important for their fans to know that the Molineres are the same good-natured, faith-based family they've always been."

It's unclear if the Molineres plan to pursue any legal action of their own.

Roland's Mini Mart has video of the altercation, and Jay Paul has a history of violence. I'm sure Sheriff Jerry Larpenter has seen the video and that is why these two were arrested days after the incident. This is just spin control because these two know there are plenty of hunters that can replace them in a heartbeat. Must be a really slow news day for these minor personalities to be newsworthy. What's the matter Harvey, did momager Chris sleep in and not feed you your daily "scoop" trashing Lamar?

I will have to hear more because I can't imagine these 2 "jumping" I guy from behind with a beer bottle....I'm pretty sure 1 by themselves could have beat the crap out of the guy face to face. What would the point be to get into trouble by doing it this way....Maybe that other guy wants his 20 seconds of fame.....

Never like these two. They wouldn't be arrested if they were just attacked. They were arrested because they broke the law - again.

Seems I'm in the minority but I believe these two guys to be straight shooters and I will believe them until proven wrong.
