Alec Baldwin was not in a picture taking mood this morning after getting his marriage license and so he punched the photographer who was taking his photo.
Baldwin punches paparazzi
Marcos Santos told the NY Daily News that the 30 Rock star punched him because he was taking pictures of Baldwin and his fiancee, Hilaria Thomas as they left the New York City Marriage License Bureau Tuesday morning.
There were other photographers there that caught the incident between Santos and Baldwin on film.
Alec went after another photographer when Santos told him not to touch him, and that is when Baldwin turned on Santos.
“I said, ‘Don’t touch him…’ I knew he was going to attack me. I stepped back, and he kept coming. He comes after me, starts shoving and punching me — one time, right in the chin. And then he started shoving me, and pushing me. Then he goes the other way.” Santos said.
Baldwin had a different version of what happened and he posted that on his Twitter
A ‘photographer’ almost hit me in the face with his camera this morning. #allpaparazzishouldbewaterboarded”
Another photograper had this to say regarding Baldwin;
“He was like crazy, you know? There was an eruption of mad. … You’re going to get a marriage license, you should be happy. What happened with this guy?”
Santos said that Alec approached them outside;
“He was looking mad, He said, ‘Step back, step back.’ I said, ‘We’re moving back.'”
Baldwin reportedly hit Santos on the chin and was shoving and pushing him the whole time.
Baldwin obviously has an issue with the NY Daily News as he called them trash earlier this year because they posted pictures of his fiancee at her yoga class. He posted on his twitter after the incident with his fiancee;
“Shame on the no-talent trash from the Daily News for invading the privacy of 75 people in a yoga class to take a picture of someone. Rest in peace, the New York Daily News, which was once a good newspaper,”
After hitting Santos this morning, Baldwin just walked away.
No word on if Santos will be pressing charges.
Alec had some issues late last year when he was thrown off of a flight for not wanting to end his “Words with Friends” game and was rude to the airline staff.
He also had issues with the Grey hound bus company because he called them filthy and put down their services.
He was called the bully of the transportation industry after both of those incidents occured.
I feel for his fiancee, what should have been a happy experience turned into a rather upsetting situation for all involved.
People magazine reports that Alec also added this statement on his twitter referring to the Trayvon Martin case;
“I suppose if the offending paparazzi was wearing a hoodie and I shot him, it would all blow over.”
Ouch, that statement can not be seen on his twitter account as of now, so apparently it was removed.
Maybe some anger management classes are needed for the actor, maybe?
