Alec Baldwin Arrested After Biking the Wrong Way in NYC
Alec Baldwin was arrested in New York earlier today, reportedly after the NYPD stopped him for biking the wrong way on the street. CBS New York reports Baldwin became belligerent as police tried to issue him a summons and was arrested.
It happened around 10:30 a.m. at Fifth Avenue and 16th Street, police said.
When Baldwin was stopped for riding his bike the wrong way, police said he did not have identification on him. As cops were giving him a summons, police said he became belligerent and he was taken into custody.
It's unclear what charges, if any, Baldwin is facing.
UPDATE 1:51 pm: A freed Baldwin weighs in:
New York City is a mismanaged carnival of stupidity that is desperate for revenue and anxious to criminalize behavior once thought benign.

The New York Daily News has a breakdown of what Baldwin allegedly said before and after his arrest.
He became belligerent, yelling and screaming at the officers, 'I don't have ID. Just give me the f——-g summonses,'" one police source told the Daily News.
But the foul-mouthed Baldwin didn't stop arguing over his arrest once he arrived at the E. 21st St. station house.
"How old are these officers?" he growled. "They don't even know who I am."
