Falsely Accused Of Choking An Employee

Question to Ask the Workplace Doctors about physical abuse: I have been accused of grabbing a member of my staff around the throat.

I have been accused of grabbing a member of my staff around the throat. I have two other members of staff who witnessed that I did not grab him in any way, but he has a outside witness who is his close friend who is stating that I did. I am now facing a disciplinary action over this. What advice can you give?
