Tom Arnold Claims Mark Burnett Attacked Him At Emmys Party

How I Met Your Mother's Alyson Hannigan confirmed that the fight really happened, tweeting "Walked n2 party behind Tom Arnold and saw him & Mark Burnett get into a fight!"

Tom Arnold is under Mark Burnett's skin. Both entered the party after "settling down".

In an interview with Jimmy Kimmel, Arnold said of the tapes, "He says the N-word, he calls Eric [Trump] the r-word, there's two people who have never called me a liar about the N-word tape: Donald Trump and Mark Burnett, because they know it's true".

Arnold replied to Downey's tweet, calling her account of the incident false. It is believed that Fogel sought to take cellphone video of Arnold's encounter with Burnett. Arnold has been pressing Burnett to release recordings he allegedly has of then-Apprentice host Donald Trump saying the N-word and other awful things on the set of the reality show. Time will tell whether Arnold found anything substantive on any tapes, and furthermore, whether said tapes will make a difference on anyone's opinion of Trump. Is your TV show worth it Tom?'

Florence's 'violent grind' leaves at least four dead in Carolinas
A buoy off the North Carolina coast recorded waves almost 30 feet (9 meters) high as Florence churned toward shore. At least 12,000 people had taken refuge in 126 emergency shelters, Cooper said, with more facilities being opened.

Arnold wasn't tagged in the tweet, but he fired back nearly immediately. Per Us Weekly, an early morning tweet from actor and comedian Tom Arnold was the first hint that the Motion Picture & Television Fund's fundraiser didn't go smoothly. He's been on a quest to convince Burnett to release supposedly incriminating backstage footage of Donald Trump from his years hosting Burnett's The Apprentice and railing against the producer in the press. "I'm filing police report & suing you for defamation", he wrote. "I'm like, 'What about the country guys?' " Arnold is also quoted as saying: "I'm definitely going to do something at the Emmys".

Arnold is also heard asking Burnett if he could use that phone conversation in the show.

Update 12:45 p.m. PT: Tom Arnold has filed an an assault charge against Burnett, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Bryan came with me.

I'm with @TomArnold, everyone.
