Alec Baldwin arrested for 'punching man in row over parking space'

Alec Baldwin Arrested After Fight in New York

Alec Baldwin Arrested for Assault Following Parking Spot Dispute

Actor Alec Baldwin was arrested Friday after allegedly punching a man in the West Village. The Saturday Night Live actor reportedly got out of his vehicle and ended up punching the guy, which led to cops and an arrest.

Baldwin, 60, has had problems with the law in the past.

Multiple news sources have reported that Baldwin punched a man - whose name has not been released - after a fight over a parking space on 10th street.

Cops reportedly arrested Baldwin and are keeping him at the nearby 6th Precinct. Reps for the show did not comment on the incident when contacted by Deadline, and it is unclear whether Baldwin was scheduled to appear. Baldwin was arrested in 2014 after he became "belligerent" with a police officer who stopped him on his bike after he was riding in the wrong direction. The victim is approximately 40-years-old and was taken to Lenox Hill hospital.

This is also not the first case of Mr Baldwin allegedly punching a man: in the 1990s, he was acquitted of misdemeanour battery charges for punching a photographer in self-defence.

After the bicycle-related arrest, Baldwin told NY magazine he was ready to quit his public life and leave the city, an hour train ride from where he grew up on Long Island.

The 60-year-old NY born actor has had a history of public blow ups. In response, Trump shrugged his shoulders and said, "I wish him luck".
