US actor alec baldwin (60) has denied punching a man in the face in a dispute over a parking space.
Normally he would not comment on such a story, wrote the hollywood star on the twitter account of the hilaria and alec baldwin foundation. "But the claim that i had hit anyone over a parking space is false." A wide spreading of the story does not make it true, the actor further wrote.
Baldwin was arrested on friday after the alleged incident in new york. A man was injured on the left cheek in a dispute over a parking space, police sources said. The investigation was ongoing, a police spokesman said.
Baldwin is known for films such as "hunt for red october" and the tv series "30 rock. In the satire show "saturday night live," he entertains the audience with a satire on u.S. President donald trump. Asked about the arrest, trump had told journalists on friday: "i wish him good luck."
