Nipper told Oklahoma City police he was knocked to the ground and “piled on” by several people, a detective wrote in the affidavit.

“While on the ground he was hit and kicked and at one point choked,” the detective reported.

Nipper's wife said she was grabbed from behind as she and her husband were leaving the party and saw several people grab her husband and start “hitting and kicking him,” police reported.

Markgraf told Oklahoma City police investigators he “probably did hit and kick the victim,” but said he did not do so deliberately, according to the affidavit. Markgraf also said the victim “gouged” his eyes, and acknowledged telling his supervisor that his dog caused the injury.

A witness told police Robertson was seen hitting Nipper with his fist while Nipper was on the ground, the affidavit states.

Neither Nipper nor his wife could be reached for comment.

Markgraf, who was arrested Nov. 7 and released from jail the same day, declined to comment.
