Manhattan, NY, United States (4E) – Actor Alec Baldwin, 60, has pleaded guilty to an assault charge in the Manhattan Criminal Court last Wednesday over parking a dispute.
The “Saturday Night Live” actor who is know for parodying US President Donald Trump was arrested on November 2 last year after punching a man for taking his parking space. A relative of his was saving the spot for his arrival when Wojciech Cieszkowski, insisted on parking on the same spot outside the actor’s building East 10th Street.
Cieszkowski filed a charge against him to which he pleaded guilty, as reported by The New York Times. The media outlet further reports that the ’30 Rock’ actor and his lawyer initially denied touching Cieszkowski but court records show that he shoved the guy during the scuffle for taking his parking spot.
Baldwin pleaded guilty to Judge Herbert Moses and agreed to take anger management classes to be completed by March 22, his next court appearance. He was originally charged with assault misdemeanor but prosecutors allowed him to plead harassment instead.
The actor is no stranger to controversial behavior. In the past years he had been thrown off a flight after refusing to stop playing a game on his phone before takeoff, he used gay slurs against a photographer taking pictures of him, his wife and child and been charged with disorderly conduct after he screamed at police officers for stopping him as his bicycle in the wrong lane.
Throughout his career, Baldwin has won an Emmy award, the Golden Globes, Screen Actors Guild Awards and earned a nomination for Best Supporting Actor on the film “The Cooler”. He currently hosts a talk show “The Alec Baldwin Show”.
