Alec Baldwin arrested after allegedly punching someone during argument over parking spot

According toTMZ, Alec was arrested in NY this morning when a man swooped into a spot he was planning to park at near 10th Street and 5th Avenue.

Police are reporting that Baldwin claimed he had a family member holding the spot when a man driving a station wagon pulled up and took it for himself. He was apparently involved in a verbal dispute over a parking spot in Greenwich Village around 2 p.m. outside of 28 E. 10th St.

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

Baldwin, who now hosts the weekly television talk show "The Alec Baldwin Show", in 2012 denied punching a photographer who was trying to take photos of him with his then-fiancee, yoga teacher Hilaria Thomas.




Police told the station that Baldwin was trying to hold a parking spot open near his home, when someone else took the spot.

Cops reportedly arrested Baldwin and are keeping him at the nearby 6th Precinct.

A rep for the actor did not immediately return Fox News' request for comment. The man's identity has not been released, but the spokeswoman said that he was a white man and was 49 years old. Last month, Baldwin called on the public to "overthrow" Trump's administration.

Baldwin also received backlash in 2013 for lobbing a gay slur against a photographer attempting to capture his wife and infant son on camera.
