In the photographs published by the New York Daily News, the famously short-tempered actor appears to pin a 60-year-old freelance photographer against the hood of a parked car.
According to a witness Baldwin, 55, got angry to see at least two photographers following him and wife Hilaria, 29, in one of her first public outings since giving birth to their daughter, Carmen Gabriela recently.
"Alec didn't want them taking any more pictures, so he went over and confronted him," said Erick Nguyen, who witnessed the face-off. "They were jawing. Baldwin grabbed him and threw him against the car." The photographer, Paul Adao and Baldwin called the 911 but they did not file a complaint. It is not the first time that Baldwin's temper has got the better off him.
The actor ranted against a British journalist on Twitter who claimed that Hilaria was tweeting during James Gandolfini's funeral. In February, a photographer claimed that the actor made racial slurs against him, something that Baldwin has denied. Another photographer has blamed the actor for striking him in the face.
