Former MSNBC host Alec Baldwin was detained this morning and given a summons for disorderly conduct after NYPD officers stopped him for riding his bike against traffic in Manhattan. The Daily News reports:
The hotheaded actor became unruly with officers who asked him for identification after they stopped him at E. 16th St. and Fifth Ave. in the Flatiron District about 10:15 a.m., the sources said.
“The officers approached him and told him that he was riding the wrong way on the street and asked him for ID,” an NYPD spokesman said. “But he didn’t have any ID on him. He then began to act belligerent to police.”
A rep for Baldwin tells InTouch, “He was not arrested or charged with a crime. He has been released.”
