Alec Baldwin arrested in New York parking-spot punchout; Trump says ‘I wish him luck’
Hot-headed actor Alec Baldwin was arrested Friday after punching a man in New York City, police said, CNBC reported.
A spokesman for the New York Police Department told CNBC that the “30 Rock” star Baldwin was in custody after the incident in the East Village section of Manhattan.
Charges are pending, but Baldwin is expected to be charged with third-degree assault and harassment.
Sources told WNBC-TV in New York that the dispute involving the 60-year-old Baldwin was over a parking spot.
Police told CNBC that officers responded to East 10th Street at about 2 p.m. after someone called 911 to report an assault.
“Upon arrival, officers observed a 49-years-old male conscious and alert with injury to his left jaw,” police said. “EMS responded and transported the aided to Lenox Hill Hospital in stable condition.”
Baldwin, who has appeared in such films as “Working Girl,” “The Departed,” and “Glengarry Glen Ross,” more recently has made news for his frequent scathing impersonations of President Donald Trump on NBC’s “Saturday Night Live.”
When Trump was asked by reporters Friday afternoon about the arrest of his nemesis, the president said, “I wish him luck.”
