    A reported scuffle between actor Tom Arnold and a producer of "The Apprentice" has led to an exchange between celebrities on social media.

    Arnold tweeted that producer Mark Burnett choked him at a pre-Emmys party Sunday in Los Angeles. Burnett's wife, actress Roma Downey, tweeted that Arnold "tried to ambush" the couple, and she posted a photo of what she says is her bruised hand.

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

    Actress Alyson Hannigan tweeted that she witnessed the confrontation and thought it was a joke until security jumped in. She tweeted that "Survivor" host Jeff Probst tried to break up the fight.

    The Los Angeles Police Department confirmed Monday that it has taken a police report from Arnold, alleging that he was the victim of a battery by Burnett, according to NBC Investigations. 

    Emails to the celebrities' representatives were not immediately returned.

    Arnold's new show, "The Hunt for the Trump Tapes," is set to debut Tuesday. The show follows Arnold's attempts to find tapes that show Donald Trump expressing bigoted views on the set of "The Apprentice," which Burnett produces.
