Alec Baldwin Arrested for Assault Following Parking Spot Dispute

Alec Baldwin arrested for punching man over parking spot in Greenwich Village

Alec Baldwin was arrested in NY on Friday for alleged assault.

The actor was taken into custody just before 2pm on Friday in Manhattan's West Village neighbourhood, police said.

Sources told the Daily Beast that "Baldwin had someone holding a parking spot for him and while he was moving his vehicle to the spot, someone else took the space".

Baldwin also appeared in the Hollywood films Beetlejuice, The Departed and Glengarry Glen Ross. He is now at the 6th precinct and charges are pending.

"New York City is a mismanaged carnival of stupidity that is desperate for revenue and anxious to criminalize behavior once thought benign", Baldwin tweeted after the incident.

Representatives for Baldwin did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

This isn't Baldwin's first brush with the law. Baldwin is believed to have struck the other man, and was subsequently placed under arrest, while the victim was taken to a local hospital. He was arrested for disorderly conduct in 2014 and was acquitted following an alleged scuffle with a photographer in the 1990s.

After the news of Baldwin's arrest broke out, President Trump said: "I wish him luck" when reporters asked, NBC reported.

The actor starred in the movie Hunt for Red October and more recently in TV shows 30 Rock and Saturday Night Live.
