ALEC BALDWIN CHARGED With HARASSMENT!
Alec Baldwin pleaded guilty Wednesday to a violation of harassment in connection with a dispute last year over a parking spot, according to a Manhattan district attorney’s office spokeswoman.
The actor pleaded guilty to a violation of harassment in the second degree with a conditional discharge and participation in a short-term anger management program, said Emily Tuttle, deputy director of communications for the district attorney’s office. Under New York law, a violation is not a crime.
The actor will not serve time or be on probation, according to Tuttle.
Baldwin will also have to pay a mandatory surcharge of $120 and provide proof of payment and completion of the anger management courses by March 27. Photographs and video of the incident will be destroyed by matter of law.
The actor’s lawyer had no comment as he left the New York City courtroom.
Baldwin previously denied punching anyone in the Nov. 2 clash. Police said at the time that Baldwin and the man started arguing and pushing each other after the man parked in a spot that the actor said a family member was holding for him.
This is not the first arrest for the notoriously tantrum-prone star. Baldwin was cuffed in 2014 after he became “belligerent” with a police officer who stopped him on his bike after he was riding in the wrong direction.
NYPD told Fox News at the time that Baldwin, who had no identification on him, “refused to [identify] himself, became belligerent, cursing and yelling. He was then placed in handcuffs.”
Baldwin went on a Twitter rant after that arrest, posting the arresting officer’s name and badge number. The actor tweeted that he was taken into custody while “photographers outside my home ONCE AGAIN terrified my daughter and nearly hit her with a camera. The police did nothing.”
He then added, “New York City is a mismanaged carnival of stupidity that is desperate for revenue and anxious to criminalize behavior once thought benign.”
Baldwin has also had several other run-ins with the general public that did not involve law enforcement.
The actor was thrown off an American Airlines flight in 2011 after refusing to turn his cell phone off for departure.
The following year Baldwin got into an altercation with a photographer after obtaining a marriage license with his future wife, Hilaria Thomas.
