Alec Baldwin pleads guilty to harassment charge in parking spot dispute
Hollywood actor Alec Baldwin pleaded guilty to a harassment charge which stemmed from an altercation over a parking spot, where he punched a man, in New York last year.
The ‘BlacKkKlansman’ actor, who appeared in court on Wednesday, was sentenced to a conditional discharge and was ordered to attend a short anger management programme as part of his plea, reported Fox News.
The actor was charged with attempted assault in the third degree and harassment in the second degree and is due in court again on March 27.
In November, Baldwin landed himself in trouble after he punched a man over a parking space. While the individual was taken to a local hospital, the actor was immediately taken into police custody.
Shortly after the media reported the incident, Baldwin denied that he hit anyone. In now deleted tweets, the actor wrote, “The press reported that I punched someone. That is untrue, and that is a serious charge. A man was punched in NY recently and died.”
