Actor Alec Baldwin was reportedly arrested and taken into custody in New York City on Friday, local outlet NBC 4 reported.

Baldwin claimed he had a family member holding a parking spot when a man driving a station wagon pulled up and took it, police told The Associated Press.

Charges are pending against the actor, the NYPD spokeswoman said.

The NYPD's Department of Public Information said that Baldwin was arrested just before 2PM at 28 East 10th street and was taken to the 6th Precinct station house for processing. He is now at the 6th precinct and charges are pending.

Look, it isn't exactly surprising that Alec Baldwin punched somebody.

Baldwin, 60, lives in the downtown Manhattan neighborhood with his wife, Hilaria Baldwin, 34, and their four children.




The two argued and when the victim went to a pay the parking meter, Baldwin ran up and struck him, authorities said.

In the 1990s, Baldwin was acquitted of battery in a case involving a photographer.

Baldwin also appeared in the Hollywood films Beetlejuice, The Departed and Glengarry Glen Ross.

Hopefully Saturday Night Live has a failsafe plan for when their Trump acts like ... well, Alec Baldwin.

Told by White House reporters on Friday of his arrest, Trump replied, "I wish him luck".

This is a breaking story.
