Alec Baldwin allegedly slugs photog outside marriage bureau
Alec Baldwin's temper is at it again.
The "30 Rock" star wasn't too happy when he was greeted by two Daily News photographers Tuesday morning after he and his fiancée Hilaria Thomas, 28, walked out of the Marriage License Bureau on Worth Street.
Baldwin, 54, allegedly grabbed photographer Jefferson Siegel as he was snapping pictures of the couple and then allegedly assaulted photographer Marcos Santos, who tried to intervene, the Daily News reported.
"He comes after me, starts shoving and punching me - one time, right in the chin," Santos told the News.
The entire incident was photographed and posted on the Daily News' homepage. A spokeswoman for the News declined to comment.
An NYPD spokeswoman said Santos filed a police report, but no charges were filed as of press time last night. The Manhattan district attorney's office declined to comment.
Baldwin's spokesman said the actor did not throw punches and was simply defending himself and a pedestrian who was between the couple and the photographers.
"The photographer was clearly frustrated, pushed past the bystander and assaulted Alec with his camera," spokesman Matthew Hiltzik said in a statement.
Baldwin, who had a similar run-in with a New York Post photographer two years ago, took to Twitter to lash out against the News photographer.
After tweeting that he was assaulted with the hashtag, #allpaparazzishouldbewaterboarded, Baldwin later quipped about the situation by referencing the shooting of unarmed Florida teen Trevon Martin.
