NEW YORK — Police in New York City say actor Alec Baldwin has been arrested for riding a bike the wrong way on the street and acting belligerently toward the arresting officers.
Police say the "30 Rock" star was taken into custody at about 10:15 a.m. Tuesday. They say two officers noticed him riding his bicycle the wrong way at 16th Street and Fifth Avenue near Union Square Park.
They say he acted belligerently toward the officers when asked for identification and was arrested. He's since been released. He was issued a summons for riding a bike the wrong way and for disorderly conduct.
After his release, the 56-year-old actor posted on Twitter that he was handcuffed for riding the wrong way down Fifth Avenue. He also tweeted that photographers outside his home terrified his daughter.
