Alec Baldwin Arrested After Riding His Bike The Wrong Way, Being Aggressive

Alec Baldwin was stopped by police in New York City for a cycling violation but things soon turned nasty when he allegedly became aggressive towards police, according to CNN. The TV star was snapped having been handcuffed by two officers with his bicycle leading against their patrol car.

Baldwin was issued two summonses: one for riding his bike against the flow of traffic on busy Fifth Avenue and 16th Street and the other for disorderly conduct when he allegedly became angry and started shouting at the cops when they asked him for ID.

"Police stated that he got belligerent and started arguing with them and using profanity," Deputy Chief Kim Y. Royster said. When it was discovered that Baldwin was not carrying any form of identification, he was apparently taken into custody.

Baldwin reportedly was then taken to a nearby precinct where he was allegedly heard asking the desk supervisor: "How old are these officers that they don't know who I am?"

The actor moved his tirade to Twitter not long after the arrest, posting the badge number of the officer he said arrested him and saying, "photographers outside my home ONCE AGAIN terrified my daughter and nearly hit her with a camera. The police did nothing."

In another tweet that, like the first, has now been deleted, Baldwin wrote "New York City is a mismanaged carnival of stupidity that is desperate for revenue and anxious to criminalize behavior once thought benign."

In a statement, a representative for Baldwin played down the reports, saying "Alec was not arrested and not charged with a crime. He received a summons relating to riding his bicycle the wrong way and not having identification. He is back home with his family."

The incident follows hot on the heels of a spate of bad publicity for the 30 Rock star. Known for his occasionally physical altercations with photographers, Baldwin has been in trouble for chasing one pap and using a homophobic insult, pinning another's arms behind his back, and was accused of assault when a photographer bumped the actor with his camera.
