Alec Baldwin Tweets After Arrest, Calls New York A ‘Carnival Of Stupidity’

As we reported earlier today, actor Alec Baldwin was arrested after riding his bike the wrong way on Fifth Avenue in New York City. Now Baldwin, who is not known for being silent, has come forward on Twitter to berate the management of New York City.

After being taken into custody and subsequently released, the 56-year-old took to Twitter to share his feelings on his arrest this morning. Baldwin didn’t mince words and even addressed the officer that arrested him.

He continued his message by writing:

“Meanwhile, photographers outside my home ONCE AGAIN terrified my daughter and nearly hit her with a camera. The police did nothing.”

While we may admit to Alec Baldwin’s highlighting of the hypocrisy, his next tweet might be downright strange.

Early in the day, we reported on the original incident involving Alec Baldwin. Around 10:15 a.m., the 30 Rock actor was issued a summons by the police officer for biking the wrong way on Fifth Avenue. When the actor was asked to identify himself, that’s when things went a little askew. According to numerous reports, Baldwin became “belligerent” and was issued another summons for disorderly conduct. Then the actor was taken into custody, and he was brought to the 13th precinct station.

A source told the New York Post:

“Alec was riding his bicycle the wrong way on Fifth Avenue this morning and, when he was stopped by police, he didn’t have ID so he was handcuffed and arrested… It is not known where he is now, or if he is still in police custody.”

Another source came forward to In Touch Weekly to describe the scene with Alec Baldwin:

“He was stopped by officers for riding the wrong way on a street. When the officers asked for ID, he got belligerent because he had none on him… The officers placed him under arrest for disorderly conduct.”

A photo of Alec Baldwin getting into the patrol car has surfaced since the story broke hours ago:

This isn’t the only time Alec Baldwin has been described as “belligerent.” Earlier in the year, his show on MSNBC Up Late was canceled when the actor decided to throw around a gay slur during a run in with a photographer. The actor later apologized.
