The WWE icon was at Logan International Airport in Boston on Wednesday morning (27Apr16), when officials called for medical assistance for a "man with a cut on his hand".

Reports suggested the star may have been intoxicated, but his agent, Melinda Morris Zanoni, has spoken to the 67-year-old and she is adamant alcohol was not a factor in the airport incident.

A statement issued to TMZ.com reads: "Ric has been working every day around the clock, including internationally, for a month straight and has injuries on his hand that were being looked into this morning.

"While it is true Ric Flair and his buddies have been keeping airport bars in business since the '70s, that was not the case at all in Boston. I just hung up with Ric, he is already on the flight and all is good."
