Wall Street Journal reported:
Actor Alec Baldwin was arrested in Manhattan for riding his bike the wrong way down a street and for disorderly conduct, a law-enforcement official said.
Mr. Baldwin was allegedly riding his bicycle north on Fifth Avenue in the center of the street between 15th and 16th streets, the official said.
Officers approached Mr. Baldwin told him he “was riding his bicycle the wrong way,” an NYPD spokeswoman said.
Mr. Baldwin was not able to produce identification and “then he got belligerent and started to argue with the officers,” the spokeswoman said.
He was placed in handcuffs. Mr. Baldwin was taken to a local police precinct and was later released, the official said.
His court date is July 24, the official said.
In February, Mr. Baldwin told New York Magazine he planned to leave New York City.
In June, a newspaper photographer accused Mr. Baldwin of punching him during an encounter outside of the city marriage-license bureau.
