Alec Baldwin Got Arrested for Punching a Guy Over a Parking Spot

SourceAlec Baldwin was arrested Friday after he allegedly punched a man over a parking spot in lower Manhattan, a New York Police Department spokesman said. He was arrested around 1:45 p.m. on 10th Street in the West Village.

This is just the latest of Baldwin’s many public scuffles. The actor was previously arrested in 1995 for allegedly assaulting a photographer filming the homecoming of him and his then-wife Kim Basinger with their newborn daughter. And he was again arrested in 2014 for cycling the wrong way down a street—an incident that drew international headlines for his “belligerent” behavior towards the arresting officers. In 2013, he was caught on-camera shouting anti-gay slurs at a photographer outside his Manhattan apartment, which resulted in the suspension and eventual cancellation of his MSNBC show Up Late with Alec Baldwin.


Congratulations to Alec Baldwin for officially taking over the No. 1 spot in the Celebrity Rageaholic rankings.

You have to admit that is one impressive resume. Even if you give him a pass for the insane rant he left on his daughter’s voice mail, which I do because Kim Basinger had to be a nightmare to have as an ex and if you make it through your kid’s teen years with the worst thing you call them is a “pig” like he did to her, you deserve the Nobel Prize in Parenting.

So eliminate that and what are we looking at? Three public rageahol episodes in just five years? That’s a hell of a nice streak of meltdowns, I don’t care who you are. I can honestly say I never could’ve saw this coming when he was at his career peak. That 10-year sweet spot that started with Beetlejuice, went to Hunt for Red October, Glengarry Glen Ross, Malice and to the criminally underrated The Edge. Back then everything he swung at was a tape measure moonshot to the upper deck. He was dead handsome and versatile and should’ve been the biggest star in Hollywood. I just assumed by now he’d be shitting Oscar statuettes and getting first dibs on every plum role. Not settling for Boss Baby and hoping the Mission: Impossible franchise doesn’t kill off his two-scene-per-movie Evil Bureaucrat character. Or doing TV, God forbid. Even though his Jack Donaghy is one of the great sitcom roles of all time, that’s not how I pictured his career turning out back in the 90s. And for sure you couldn’t have convinced me he’d crack the top three three craziest Baldwin brothers, much less become one of the biggest lunatic in show business.

By the way, in no way should this be taken as me judging him. I might be a lover, not a fighter. But I understand that a parking spot is one of the few things worth throwing down for. Nothing will make Mr. Hand turn to Mr. Fist like some asswipe trying to take your spot and needed to be taught a lesson. It’s just that superstars don’t park their cars. And they don’t throw punches. They have people do those things for them.

I’ll still always love his movies and how great he was on 30 Rock. But I will long for the days when Alec Baldwin was more than just an actor with a God Complex. He WAS God.

Now we wait for Trumps response to this. It’s going to be amazing.
