Anti-Trump actor Alec Baldwin was in court on Monday to face charges of assault and harassment stemming from an altercation with a man over a parking spot.
According to Fox News:
Alec Baldwin arrived at a New York court Monday morning to answer assault and harassment charges after being accused of punching a man in the face over a parking space.
The hot-headed actor, who arrived solo in a black SUV and ignored reporters’ calls for comment as he was escorted into the courthouse by police officers, entered a plea of not guilty on the misdemeanor and violation-level charges. He has said any assertion that he punched anyone over a parking spot is false.
Baldwin was arrested on Nov. 2. Police were told a driver pulled into a Manhattan parking space that one of Baldwin’s relatives was holding for him, and the two men started quarreling and pushing each other.
The other driver told police Baldwin punched or slapped him. The 49-year-old man was taken to a hospital complaining of jaw pain and redness around his neck.
Baldwin has had run-ins with the law in the past. The actor pled not guilty to the charges against him on Monday.
