Duck Dynasty stars John Luke & Mary Kate Robertson are firing back at the man suing them after he was arrested for allegedly shooting up their Louisana home.

According to court documents obtained by Radar, the couple — along with Willie Robertson — are demanding the suit brought by a man named Daniel Dean King Jr. be tossed out of court.

Back in April, King Jr. sued John Luke, Mary Kate, Willie, Duck Commander Inc, and Sheriff Jay Russell from The Ouachita Parish Sheriff’s Office. He accuses the Duck Dynasty family members of lying about him doing a drive-by shooting at their home.

King claims to have been “wrongfully arrested” on April 24, 2020. In his suit, he says he was then “wrongfully charged” with committing a felony of aggravated assault by a drive-by shooting.

The man claims John Luke and Mary Kate called the police to falsely report him. He says they told police they were the target of a drive-by shooting while at home with their child. They claimed King was the one who shot into their home.

King calls the statements “calculated, false and ultimately defamatory.” In court, he accuses the Ouachita Parish Sheriff’s Office of failing “to properly investigate the case and arrested and charged Mr. King erroneously.”

Last year, King was arrested by police after being accused of shooting at two homes owned by the Duck Dynasty family.

According to a local report, police believe King fired off a .380 caliber gun multiple times into the Monroe, LA home.

The man claims Willie, John Luke and the Sheriff’s Office then publicized his arrest causing him harm. He says the defendants made “many false and defamatory statements, and did so in a manner that the allegations against Mr. King were heard nationwide. These actions were intentional and designed to damage Mr. King’s reputation.”

The suit is seeking unspecified damages for the alleged harm caused to his reputation.

In newly filed docs, Willie, John Luke and Mary Kate deny all allegations of wrongdoing. They scoff at the suggestion they lied about the drive-by shooting and are demanding the entire suit be thrown out.

The defendants claim King has suffered no damages. They claim if he has suffered any damages it is due to his own intentional reckless, gross negligence and/or negligent conduct.

“The entirety of Plaintiff’s claims are unsupported and a calculated attempt to attack Defendants right of petition and free speech following the undisputed firing of fun shots onto residential property and into a family home in which Mr. Robertson’s children and/or grandchildren were present. Plaintiff cannot prevail in this lawsuit.”

The case is still ongoing.
