Alec Baldwin Arrested, Charged With Assault in NY

On Friday night, Alec Baldwin took to Twitter to claim that reports that he punched a guy over a parking spot in New York City are decidedly false.

The "30 Rock" sitcom actor, 60, "assaulted someone for a parking spot that they were both going for", New York Police Department detective Sophia Mason said.

Baldwin, an outspoken liberal, has portrayed U.S. President Donald Trump on Saturday Night Live, and the two men have often sparred on social media.

"I wish him luck", Trump said Friday after a reporter asked him a question about Baldwin's arrest while Trump was on his way to a campaign event.

Representatives for Baldwin said the actor had no comment.

The actor allegedly punched a man in the face after he reportedly pulled in and took Baldwin's parking spot in the West Village.

Baldwin, who started hosting a talk show on ABC last month, was arrested and charged with misdemeanor assault and harassment after the incident. The unidentified victim complained of pain and was taken to Lenox Hill Hospital, the sources said.

It happened on East 10th Street near University Place, according to the NYPD. In 2014, he was arrested in NY and issued a summons for disorderly conduct after riding his bike in the wrong direction.

Baldwin was booted off an American Airlines flight in 2011 after allegedly getting belligerent with a flight attendant who asked him to stop playing "Words with Friends" and put his cellphone away. I'm beginning to crave.
