TMZ reported Monday that Arnold charged at Burnett and Downey as soon as the actor saw them at the party.

Burnett's wife, Roma Downey, chimed in shortly after, alleging that her hand was bruised in the altercation. "Mark Burnett just went apes-t and choked me at this huge Emmy party [and] then he ran away", Arnold wrote, saying that he was going to call the LAPD.

After the altercation, Downey tweeted out a photo of her bruised hand, writing, "Got this bruise tonight when Tom Arnold tried to ambush my husband Mark and me at a charity event. Is your TV show worth it Tom?". Her tweet came more than an hour after Arnold's.
