Alec Baldwin Arrested for Allegedly Punching Man Over Parking Spot in New York
The incident happened outside Baldwin's New York City apartment in the West Village.
Actor Alec Baldwin was arrested Friday after allegedly punching a man in a dispute over a parking spot.
The incident happened outside Baldwin's New York City apartment in the West Village. Sources told NBC New York that Baldwin punched the man in the side of the face after he took a spot that the actor was waiting for.
The 49-year-old man was taken to a local hospital for treatment, while Baldwin was taken into custody and is expected to be charged with assault, according to ABC News.
Asked about Baldwin's arrest shortly afterward, President Trump told reporters, "I wish him luck."
Baldwin, who portrays Trump on "Saturday Night Live," is a frequent target of the president's. Trump despises Baldwin's impersonation of him, and has called for the series to be canceled for mocking him.
It's not Baldwin's first brush with the law: In 2014, he was arrested for biking the wrong way and then not showing identification.
