JOHANNESBURG, South Africa - The family of Oscar Pistorius says the double-amputee runner recently visited a nightclub with a cousin and was accosted by a man who aggressively questioned him about his murder trial.

Anneliese Burgess, a spokeswoman for the Pistorius family, says an argument followed and the athlete, who is free on bail, soon left the club. Burgess said Tuesday Pistorius regrets the decision to go to a "public space" where he drew unwelcome attention.

South African media have reported that the altercation happened Saturday night in Sandton, an upscale area in Johannesburg.

Pistorius says he fatally shot girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp in his home last year by mistake, thinking an intruder was about to attack him. Prosecutors say he intentionally killed Steenkamp after an argument.
