Richard Belzer has denied that he choked a staff member at an Apple store.

According to TMZ, the Law & Order star insisted that reports of the incident have been entirely sensationalised.

It is thought that the actor was waiting in line at the Apple store in Manhattan when a female employee approached him and asked if he needed help. Belzer recalled that he placed his hands on her shoulders and said that he would love some.

However, the assistant is said to have immediately become upset by Belzer's actions and contacted the police.

"Perhaps I shouldn't have invaded her space, but it was clearly non-threatening," he added.

Upon review of the store's surveillence tape, police found the clerk's claims to have no basis.
