ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — A video released by lawyers for U.S. Rep. Alan Grayson shows his estranged wife shoving him in front of their house but doesn't reveal the congressman slamming his wife against a door as she claims.

The video released Wednesday by Grayson's attorneys shows his wife, Lolita, walking from a red minivan, pointing her finger and shouting. The video then cuts to the Democratic congressman and his wife arguing at the front door to the house. The video then shows Lolita Grayson pushing her hand at her estranged husband's face.

The video was shot by a Grayson staffer.

Grayson's wife filed for divorce in January.

Lolita Grayson this week was granted a restraining order against the congressman. She alleges he pushed her against the front door of the home.
