Sure, driving in Manhattan is aggravating, but this is ridiculous, Alec Baldwin. If so, your time has come.

Baldwin, 60, was arrested Friday afternoon in NY after allegedly punching a 49-year-old man during an argument over a parking spot outside Baldwin's home.

Mr. Baldwin was still at NYPD's 6th Precinct being processed as of mid-afternoon. Said Trump: "I wish him luck".

Baldwin allegedly became very angry and started yelling at police officers after they asked him for identification in order to give him a summons, police said at the time.

Turkish prosecutor says Saudi writer strangled, body dismembered
After initially saying Khashoggi had left the consulate alive, the Saudi administration admitted weeks later he had died there. The Saudis say they have arrested 18 suspects, 15 of which were members of a death squad sent to kill Khashoggi.

Representatives for Baldwin did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Witnesses tell us the actor got into an argument with another man over a parking spot near 10th Street and 5th Avenue.

Baldwin is expected to be released after being processed by the NYPD, with a court date estimated for sometime in December.

The actor provides regular, incendiary portrayals of Trump on "Saturday Night Live" and hosts a talk show every Sunday on ABC called "The Alec Baldwin Show".

Bill Gates cancels $5m aid to Saudi following Jamal Khashoggi’s murder
A source close to the Saudi Royal Palace told CNN last week that the location of Khashoggi's body was not known to the Saudis. Turkey pressed Saudi authorities on Thursday to tell them the whereabouts of Khashoggi's body, which has not been recovered.

In 2012, he was accused by a photographer of getting aggressive with him on a New York City street, and in 2013 another photographer filed a harassment claim against Baldwin.

Baldwin, who did not speak to reporters, was given a ticket for the altercation, according to the news source.

The actor's oldest daughter, 23-year-old Ireland, once defended her dad's temper on Twitter, where she said he's "grown tremendously" in his struggle with "anger management issues".

There was also the 2011 incident in which Baldwin was kicked off an American Airlines flight because he refused to put away his phone for takeoff. TMZ also notes that Alec lives in the area.
