Alec Baldwin ‘shoves snapper’

Alec Baldwin

Alec Baldwin has reportedly got into a scuffle with a paparazzo, leading to the police being called.

The 30 Rock actor was apparently involved in an altercation with a professional photographer outside his apartment in New York City at around midday on Tuesday.

“All I can say is I was doing my job asking him normal questions and he flipped. That’s all,” the snapper told TMZ, a publication which he was not working for.

The men confessed to shoving each other when the incident broke out in the street and the NYPD investigated after both dialed 911.

The pair walked away from the kerfuffle without pressing charges and the professional photographer insists he did nothing to provoke Alec.

A friend of the 55-year-old actor claims he was with his wife Hilaria at the time and she hid in a tea store while the fight went on.

Big Apple yoga instructor Hilaria gave birth to the couple’s first daughter, Carmen Gabriela, on August 23.

“What kind of sick twisted psychopath chases a woman who just got out of the hospital from having a baby into a tea store?” the pal asked.

Alec already has a 17-year-old daughter named Ireland with his ex-wife Kim Basinger.

The star is known for being very protective of his privacy and his family.

“Alec and Hilaria were alone, they weren’t with the baby,” a source told Radar Online.

“They walked outside and the guys were taking their picture and Alec just went after a random photographer. He attacked him and so the guy ended up calling the police.”

Last summer Alec was involved in a brawl with a photographer who questioned him about a lawsuit regarding Hilaria.
