Alec Baldwin arrested after fight over parking spot

Actor Alec Baldwin, best known today for his portrayal of US President Donald Trump on Saturday Night Live, was arrested and charged for assault and harassment on 2 November, the NY police has informed.

The younger man had already parked his vehicle and was attempting to purchase a parking ticket, when he got into a dispute with Baldwin, "who then punched him in the face", the officer said.

Baldwin, the star of former television sitcom "30 Rock" and current host of "Match Game", portrays President Donald Trump on "Saturday Night Live" and recently started a talk show on ABC.

As a result, NBC 4 NY reports that Trump already commented on the actor's arrest, telling some reporters gathered at the White House: 'I wish him luck.' Well, it is not unlike the president to lie!

Back in 2013, meanwhile, he was caught on camera shouting anti-gay slurs at a photographer outside his apartment in NY - this incident ended in the star's MSNBC show, Up Late With Alec Baldwin, being suspended and eventually cancelled. He was take to Lenox Hill Hospital and was listed in stable condition.
