Alec Baldwin Involved In Paparazzo Fight - But Will Not Face Charges

Parenthood has certainly not mellowed Alec Baldwin. The 55-year-old actor was involved in a scrap with a paparazzo in New York this morning (27th August). It seems the 30 Rock star lost his temper - to make a change- with a photographer whilst he was out in New York with his wife, Hilaria.

Hilaria gave birth to their daughter Carmen on 23rd August and, it appears, wanted to avoid the paparazzi by hiding in a tea shop. Baldwin has been photographed by TMZ guarding the entrance of the store and glowering at a small group of photographers. Police were present at the scene and stepped in when Baldwin attacked the photographer. It seems the photographer did retaliate so neither party will be pressing charges, according to a NYPD spokesperson. 

According to the paparazzo, speaking to TMZ, he was not doing anything out of the ordinary and was unsure why he was singled out by Baldwin. He said: "all I can say is I was doing my job asking him normal questions and he flipped. That's all." However, sources close to the couple said "what kind of sick twisted psychopath chases a woman who just got out of the hospital from having a baby into a tea store?"

Baldwin is not the only celebrity to snap under the pressure of paparazzi pursuit. Other famous incidents, compiled by OK magazine and Time, include Orlando Bloom allegedly hitting a photographer who crept up on him whilst on a hiking trip with his wife Miranda Kerr. Paris Hilton and her friends were taking no prisoners whilst at a movie premiere when a paparazzo claimed they attacked him; Britney Spears hit a paparazzi's car with an umbrella; Chris Martin wrestled a photographer to the ground; and Kanye West's numerous LAX encounters.
