"I will be there for Chris if he needs help," Trump told a news conference Tuesday at New York's Trump Tower. "He's a good guy, (but) he's got an anger-management problem. We talk about it in the show -- he truly is an angry guy."
Shelton was arrested Sunday at a Tampa casino after an alleged shouting match over the $20 cover charge, the New York Post reported. He was released on $250 bail.
Shelton is known to fans of "The Apprentice" for his angry outbursts and six-week losing streak, the Post said.
Trump also announced the finale of "The Apprentice 3" will be one hour long, live from New York University's Skirball Center for the Performing Arts in Washington Square Park, the Post reported.
