Alec Baldwin released from police custody after parking spot punch
Baldwin, wearing a grim scowl and an untucked, gray button-down shirt, sauntered out of the NYPD’s 6th Precinct station house in Greenwich Village around 4 p.m., walking past dozens of waiting journalists.
“What kind of example are you setting for your kids with your little temper tantrum?” asked a Post reporter. “Can’t you afford a garage at this point with all the money you make?”
Baldwin, for once, kept his mouth shut, not uttering a word as he strode out of the precinct and into a waiting car.
He was still not in a chatty mood when he arrived home a few minutes later, ignoring questions as he walked, hunched over and clutching his cellphone, into the foyer, where he was greeted by his family nanny.
He left about 10 minutes later, again wordlessly climbing into the backseat of a Cadillac that peeled out.
The Bloviator was issued a desk appearance ticket for assaulting a motorist outside his East 10th Street building around 1:30 p.m., police said.
A Baldwin relative was holding a parking spot for the actor, but another driver pulled in first, cops said.
An incensed Baldwin, 60, socked the 49-year-old victim in the head while he was feeding the meter, cops said.
The victim was hospitalized, but escaped serious injury.
The hotheaded actor is due back in court on charges of misdemeanor assault and harassment.
