Alec Baldwin has been arrested by New York City Police according to an ABC News report on Tuesday. The “30 Rock” television star was taken into custody at approximately 10:15 a.m. on Tuesday after he was found to have been riding his bicycle the wrong way on a city street. Additionally, Baldwin was acting belligerently toward the New York City officers who were arresting him.

In the incident, Baldwin was riding his bike midmorning when he was spotted by two police officers. They noted that he was riding his bike the wrong way on 16th Street near Fifth Avenue. The location is close to Union Square Park.

When Baldwin was asked to show identification, he apparently didn’t have any on him. During the incident, witnesses say that the actor – who has a reputation for having a volatile temper – lived up to his reputation over the questioning. That’s when he was taken into custody and taken into the police station in handcuffs. Since the arrest, he has been released. Prior to being released, however, the television star was given a summons for riding a bike the wrong way. Additionally, he was cited for disorderly conduct, according to a Chicago Tribune report..

Alec Baldwin is a 56-year-old American actor, film producer and comedian. He has appeared on television, stage and film. He is one of four Baldwin brothers who are actors. He first came to fame when he was on CBS television’s “Knots Landing” – during the 6th and 7th seasons of the drama program. From 2006 to 2013, he was a star on the “30 Rock” television program – a sitcom on NBC. That is the performance in which he was critically acclaimed and won two Emmy Awards. He also appeared in several well-known movies including “Beetlejuice” and “The Hunt for Red October.” He was nominated for Best Supporting Actor for his 2003 film, “The Cooler.”
