They are 100% categorically wrong and reckless,” Gatt wrote in a statement posted to Twitter  Wednesday. “I have confirmed errors and misleading information in today’s press release. I am fully cooperating with police and LAPD to get to the bottom of this. I look forward to clearing my good name.

“Thank you to all of my friends and supporters who know that this is untrue and understand for legal reasons I cannot comment further on social media.”
