Tom Arnold and Mark Burnett Came to Blows Over Trump Tapes

"I'm waiting for LAPD".

Burnett's wife, Roma Downey, chimed in shortly after, alleging that her hand was bruised in the altercation. "Is your TV show worth it Tom?Please stop", she wrote. "I'm filing a police report & suing you for defamation".

Arnold's new show, The Hunt for the Trump Tapes, premieres on Viceland on Tuesday.

The eight-episode series follows Arnold as he searches for rumored recordings of Trump that are said to be potentially damaging.

Per the Hollywood Reporter, the LAPD was aware of the incident, but said no report had been filed.

Burnett was the head man on The Apprentice for its entire NBC run with Trump, and the reality TV exec reportedly likes The Donald quite a bit. (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.

Monica Lewinsky Thanks Kavanaugh Accuser Christine Blasey Ford for Coming Forward
Even after Feinstein sent the allegation to the FBI, Senate Democrats weren't littering the news with calls to denounce Kavanaugh. Katz said Ford stood by her story, and that now she had come forward , they expected serious opposition ".

Arnold and Burnett were involved in a brief physical altercation on Sunday night as both entered the Evening Before party in Century City, the glitzy annual fundraiser for the Motion Picture Television Fund.

"There's two people that have never called me a liar about the "N-Word Tape" - Donald Trump and Mark Burnett - because they know it's true", he insisted.

But Tom didn't exactly take too kindly to that, opting to (probably accidentally) go for a very Trump-ian tactic in response: the threatened lawsuit (below)!

He says that's when Burnett "went apeshit" and tried to choke him.

ET has reached out to reps for Arnold and Burnett as well as the police. Arnold maintains that Burnett has all the unedited, unaired Apprentice tapes, and Burnett says that he "does not have the ability nor the right to release footage or other material from The Apprentice", and that the footage is MGM's property. "[Burnett] called to say that there are NO TAPES of the Apprentice where I used such a awful and disgusting word as attributed by Wacky and Deranged Omarosa", Trump tweeted last month. Mark Burnett says he's a Christian?
