Alec Baldwin Arrested In N.Y

Alec Baldwin arrested for traffic violation, disorderly conduct in New York City

NEW YORK – Alec Baldwin has run into trouble with the law once again. The notoriously hotheaded actor was arrested in New York City on Tuesday morning after he became belligerent with a police officer who stopped him on his bike, a spokesperson for the NYPD revealed to FOX411.

“Basically around 10:15, he was riding his bicycle the wrong way in vicinity of 16th and Fifth [Avenue] he was approached by the officers and was asked for [identification],” the spokesperson said.

Another spokesperson for the NYPD described the scene saying, "He had no ID, refused to [identify] himself, became belligerent, cursing and yelling. He was then placed in handcuffs…"

In Touch Weekly first reported news of Baldwin's bust and published photos of the former “30 Rock” star in handcuffs.

A witness told the publication that the star “went ballistic on the cops, screaming at them" as they took him into custody.

Baldwin was issued two summons once at the police station, one for disorderly conduct and one for the traffic violation.

The actor took to Twitter shortly after his arrest to rant about the day's events.

He posted a tweet with the arresting officer's name and badge number, writing 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."

A rep for the actor declined to comment.

The bicycle citation sounds like bullshit though.

The NYPD's job is to enforce traffic laws for all street users. Lately, we've seen an increase in ticketing for cyclists, due in large part to complaints from the public about bad bicycle behavior paired with the enormous increase in bicycling on our streets.

Enforcement will be successful when it targets the most dangerous behaviors at the most dangerous locations for all street users. As bike ridership grows in New York, enforcement is one way for the city to educate bicyclists about the rules of the road, which is why T.A. has piloted a Give/Get Respect campaign over the years. Bicyclists are no different than other road users when it comes to the rules of the road. Bicyclists in New York have the same responsibilities and rights as motor vehicle drivers. T.A.'s Biking Rules campaign is a great place to read up on the laws, and to hear our take on the courteous bike riding culture we believe needs to be fostered by bicyclists on NYC streets. Bottom line: Always yield to pedestrians.

At the same time, T.A. is vigilant about overzealous enforcement. Amidst the increase in valid bicycle tickets, we have also witnessed an increase in tickets written for behavior that isn't illegal, or that does not address dangerous behaviors, but rather uniformly targets bike riders in one location. We keep track of such tickets via our online ticket form -- these are often dismissed in court. In this area, T.A. continues to work with the NYPD to encourage data-driven enforcement that focuses on the most dangerous traffic violations -- the ones that risk the lives and limbs of thousands of New Yorkers every year.

Sounds as though the folks take bad bicycle behavior seriously. Enough so, that actions have been put in place to ticket such riders, and dismiss those ones written by overzealous law enforcement officials.

The Right Candidate for New York Mayor
Alec Baldwin

Bill de Blasio is the one candidate who understands what New York's current priorities must be. Please visit www.billdeblasio.com and find out how Bill De Blasio's plans for affordable housing and investing in early education in New York's public schools may well be the rising tide that lifts middle class New Yorkers back to a place the City needs them to be. To benefit all New Yorkers.
