Actor Robert Blake accused CNN's Piers Morgan of calling him a liar and much more in a combative, profanity-laced interview Wednesday night.
Blake, 78, said he agreed to appear on Morgan's program to promote his self-published memoir Tales Of A Rascal, but a different topic came up.
Blake was acquitted in 2005 in connection with the murder of his wife Bonnie Lee Bakley, though he was found liable in a wrongful death lawsuit.
Ordered to pay $30 million, Blake subsequently filed for bankruptcy. When Morgan asked if he was being truthful last night, it got ugly fast.
When Morgan asked about the case, including the civil suit, Blake demanded: "Do you know why I was arrested?" "Tell me," Morgan said.
"Well, before you start asking questions, you should do some goddamn research," Blake said, later adding that "no one calls me a liar."
At one point during Blake's tirades, Morgan asked: "Are you sane?"
