Tom Arnold Claims ‘Apes**t’ Mark Burnett Attacked Him At Pre-Emmys Party

"I'm waiting for LAPD", the 59-year-old actor tweeted on Sunday night.

Whereas Burnett's wife, Roma Downey, said Arnold "tried to ambush my husband" and posted a picture that she claimed was a bruise on her hand from the confrontation. "Is your TV show worth it Tom?". Arnold claims that the bruise was already on her hand and that he didn't even see Downey until after the incident began. "I'm filing a police report & suing you for defamation".

Tomorrow evening Tom Arnold's new show on Viceland, "The Hunt for the Trump Tapes", will premier, likely to a chagrin of producer Mark Burnett.

Arnold's series deals with the comedian's quest to obtain alleged recordings of President Donald Trump making racist and other disparaging remarks on the set of The Apprentice, which was produced by Burnett.

However, no report has been filed as of Monday morning, LAPD said.

"They're really anxious about me being anywhere near him", Arnold told Salon about Burnett. Actor Patton Oswalt later took a photo with Arnold, writing, "He's okay". (A source within earshot of the tussle said Arnold challenged Burnett on the Apprentice outtakes, specifically.) The source also said it was unclear who made the first move.

Tom Arnold scuffling with Mark Burnett, apparently!

Arnold's lawyer Marty Singer confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter there had been an altercation and maintained the producer had attacked his client. "I'm like, 'What about the country guys?' " Arnold is also quoted as saying: "I'm definitely going to do something at the Emmys". He wrote, "I'm with @TomArnold, everyone".

Arnold was heard effusively describing Sunday's encounter and telling a group of people that tapes of Donald Trump from "The Apprentice" had just been "handed over" to Ronan Farrow. "He's okay. We gotta protect this brutal angel", he wrote. "I don't have that word in my vocabulary, and never have". We asked Arnold if he expect's Fogel to speak out on the incident.
