Tom Arnold & Mark Burnett got into a fist fight over Donald Trump

Tom Arnold & Mark Burnett got into a fist fight over Donald Trump

Actor Tom Arnold and "The Apprentice" producer Mark Burnett were apparently involved in some sort of scuffle Sunday night during a pre-Emmys party in Century City.

Arnold's lawyer, Marty Singer, told the Hollywood Reporter that Burnett "attacked" Arnold.

Meanwhile, at a recent promotional appearance for his new show, Arnold said, "Mark Burnett says he's a Christian, and he lets that man do all that bullsh*t, and he let a sexual harasser work on his show". Both Burnett and Arnold were allowed into the party after the situation calmed down.

Arnold has been working on an investigative series about President Trump called "The Hunt for the Trump Tapes".

During the press tour for his Viceland show, Arnold has repeatedly said that Burnett knows the tapes exist.

Arnold responded to Downey accusing her of lying about the incident.

Burnett's wife, Roma Downey says Arnold "tried to ambush" her and Mark.

What beef does Burnett have with Arnold? Arnold has harshly criticized Burnett for what Arnold views as his effort to protect President Donald Trump by not releasing unused footage from Trump's long run as host of "The Apprentice" and "Celebrity Apprentice", which Burnett created and exec produced.

"They're really anxious about me being anywhere near him", Arnold told Salon about Burnett. "Is your TV show worth it Tom?". Patton Oswalt later posted a selfie with Arnold to show fans that the "brutal angel" is okay.

Arnold said he contacted the Los Angeles Police Department about the incident. Arnold claimed the former "Apprentice" producer choked him at a party on Sunday, September 16. I'm filing police report & suing you for defamation'.

Roma knocked Bryan Fogel's phone out of his hand after Mark Burnett chocked me. Arnold alleges that their verbal altercation turned physical at around around 9 p.m. PT, and that other stars in attendance had to break up the fight. He won the Oscar this year for his awesome documentary Icarus.
