Tom Arnold, Mark Burnett scuffle at pre-Emmys party

Tom Arnold, Mark Burnett scuffle at pre-Emmys party

At this time it is unclear exactly what happened during the altercation, but Arnold seems to be suggesting that he has video of the incident from documentary filmmaker Bryan Fogel, who he says was with him.

Burnett's wife, actress Roma Downey, also took to social media, sharing a photo of a bruised hand.

"Sitting in West LAPD filing charges against your best bud Apprentice Outtakes Mark Burnett who lost his mind, attacted & chocked me last nite at Katzenberg's Night Before The Emmy's Party".

Arnold claimed on Twitter that Burnett tried to choke him, then ran away at the charity event. Downey in her tweet wrote, "Is your TV show worth it Tom?". Arnold replied to her tweet, writing, "Bulls-t".

"Bulls--", Arnold replied. "You lie your insane husband attacked me you psycho". "An attorney for Arnold, however, claims the actor was the victim of an "'unprovoked attack' by Burnett", reports The Hollywood reporter.

Arnold friend and comedian Patton Oswalt posted a photo of them together after the alleged encounter. "We gotta protect this brutal angel".

Arnold is set to host and executive produce a new four-part Viceland series, "The Hunt for the Trump Tapes", airing Tuesday.

Some have speculated the fight was a publicity stunt.

Tom Arnold discusses "The Hunt For The Trump Tapes" onstage during The 2018 Summer Television Critics Association Press Tour on 26 July 2018 in Los Angeles, California. "I'd like him to stand up and say, 'actually, we had to cut out all the lies and sexual harassment and the insanity and the incompetence, we had to cut all that out.' That's the tape I want".

Shortly after the incident witnessed by others in the entertainment business, Arnold tweeted out, "Mark Burnett just went ..." "I don't have that word in my vocabulary, and never have". The president also reportedly uses the N-word and "calls Eric [Trump] the R-word", Arnold told Jimmy Kimmel.

A rep for Burnett did not return Fox News' request for comment.
