Actor Alec Baldwin was reportedly arrested yesterday morning for going the wrong way on New York’s Fifth Avenue. That’s the bad news. The good news is, he was on a bike.
He was actually charged with two counts, say NYPD sources. The first for traveling in the wrong direction. The second for disorderly conduct after going ballistic after the cops asked for ID. He must have left his Capital One card at home.
Afterwards, Alec tweeted three times about it – showing the arresting officer’s name and badge number, complaining about the photographers that showed up at his house, and then screaming on how NYC is “anxious to criminalize behavior once thought benign.”
For the record, Alec’s spokesperson says that Alec was not arrested. Looks like the spokesperson doesn't subscribe to Alec’s Twitter feed.
