Alec Baldwin is suing the man who accused the actor of punching him during a dispute over a Manhattan parking spot last year — and the star wants a jury to decide whether he’s been defamed.
The “Saturday Night Live” actor — who plays a raging President Trump on the TV show and was once tossed off a plane and previously arrested for arguing with cops in real life — says Wojciech Cieszkowski lied when he claimed Baldwin punched him in the face during the Nov. 2, 2018, fight.
“When two New Yorkers get into an argument over a parking space, typically what happens is they exchange a few sharp words and then move on with their lives,” according to Baldwin’s suit, which was filed in Manhattan Supreme Court on Friday.
“But that is not what happened here. Cieszkowski has instead made up a false story about the encounter and refused to move on unless Baldwin succumbs to his extortion demands.”
