Baldwin denies punching man
Alec Baldwin denied he punched anyone over a parking spot and said an assault allegation is being reported “for the purposes of click-bait entertainment.”
The actor was arrested Friday and charged with assault and harassment on suspicion of hitting a man in the face during a dispute over a parking spot in New York.
Baldwin tweeted from the account of the Hilaria and Alec Baldwin Founda- tion that “the assertion that I punched anyone over a parking spot is false.”
Baldwin, 60, told police a family member was holding the spot in front of his Manhattan home when a man driving a Saab station wagon pulled up and took it.
The driver of the station wagon told police Baldwin hit him with his hand, but he wasn’t sure if it was a punch or a slap.
Baldwin was released from the Greenwich Village police precinct in after about two hours. He was ordered to appear in court Nov. 26.
