Alec Baldwin arrested for allegedly assaulting a man in New York
Actor Alec Baldwin was arrested for allegedly punching a man in a parking space dispute in New York on Friday.
According to E! Online, the alleged altercation took place at W 10th Street between University and Broadway, after which the 49-year-old victim, who complained of pain, was taken to Lenox Hill Hospital.
The 60-year-old actor was charged with assault and harassment and was given a desk appearance ticket.
"Normally, I would not comment on something as egregiously misstated as today's story. However, the assertion that I punched anyone over a parking spot is false," Baldwin tweeted.
"I wanted to go on the record stating as much. I realize that it has become a sport to tag people was many negative charges and defaming allegations as possible for the purposes of clickbait entertainment," he said in a follow-up tweet.
Baldwin is scheduled to appear in court later this month.
