Alec Baldwin has been arrested.
The volatile actor was handcuffed by police officers in New York on Tuesday and taken away in a cop car, according to In Touch with one witness telling the publication Baldwin 'went ballistic on the cops, screaming at them' during the incident which led to his arrest.
TMZ reports he was stopped by police for cycling his bike the wrong way down Fifth Avenue and one of the reasons he was arrested was because he did not have any identification on him.
By the time he was cuffed he was 'calm and quiet', another onlooker told In Touch.
A source with the New York Police Department told the publication: 'The incident just happened, we are waiting for details at this time.'
He was alone at the time of the incident and is reported to have been cycling for exercise.
In the pictures, obtained by In Touch, he can be seen wearing shorts, a jacket and a visor as he is led into the car by a female police officer.
Another officer stands nearby.
He appears calm and collected in the pictures as he is being led away while his bike can be seen propped up against the car.
Alec has faced controversy in the past few years for repeatedly being accused of using homophobic slurs.

May I suggest using your nightstick, officers?
"The bravest are surely those who have the clearest vision
of what is before them, glory and danger alike,
and yet notwithstanding, go out to meet it."
Couldn’t they just tell him to go to the other side of the street? Sheesh! (If that part is one way, suggest a different route)
“Don’t you know who I am?” does not appear to have worked this time. Couldn’t happen to a more deserving @hole.
And there you go. Fully explained.
"Yeah, you're Arec Barwin....You are worthless Arec Barwin."
He must have thought he had left the country as he promised to do.
Yeah. He thought perhaps in was in England where he would have been going the right way.
NY needs to post signs like they have in factories.
NY has gone ______ days without an Alec Baldwin accident.
“Riding bike the wrong way?” Why does that remind me of this scene?
Boy is he strict!
No fan of Alec Baldwin, but one would think with all the crime going down in NYC, the NYPD would have more important things to do then using two cops to effect an arrest for going the wrong way on a bicycle. Many don’t carry ID while bicycling, and a ticket in lieu of arrest would have served the purpose.
did they shoot his dog?
What?!? Is it illegal now to ride a bike the wrong way?
Can't stand leftists screaming and since dueling is illegal, we need a way to bring civility back to everyday discourse.
What's in your wallet ... Arec Barwin?
Baldwin is a jackass, but seriously, not have any identification on him is cause for arrest?
Is this accurate? Your papers please!
...and when police stopped to give him a summons, he grew angry.
Baldwin was not carrying ID, the source said. When police are handing out a summons to someone who has no ID, they bring the person to the police station.
The cops would taser a guy in a wheelchair. Why didn’t they just taser this scum?
That’s exactly what I was thinking. In this case I wouldn’t mind them tazering the bastard.
That’s one of the people on the planet I’d like to massage with a 2x4.
Wait a minute! I didn’t know Alec was homophobic. Maybe there’s has a saving grace after all. On second thought ... lose the key.
Nothing funnier than a Useful Idiot suddenly becoming useless...
NYC is a sanctuary city, is it not? I thought the police were prohibited from asking for id. You know - so the illegals will feel...American.
Isn’t this racism to ask for id from AB?
Amen to that! Can I help? We could teach that boy some manners real quick.
Looks like Alec Baldwin has maybe spent all of his Liberal Exemption Chits.
I wonder if it is now Alec Baldwin open season in NYC.
I would suggest he move to city that is a little more tolerant. Dallas? Worked for Beck. Palm Beach? Worked for Rush.
Hey, why wouldn’t Blommberg’s Finest cuff him? Baldwin riding the wrong way is far more dangerous to himself than a 32-ounce soft drink.
No kidding. But, don’t ask illegals for ID when they’re working, going to school or voting here. That’s raciss.
This guy NEVER gets it!
“..what do they need ID for?”
Too bad he wasn’t voting.
With no ID how do they know it's the same person they have a summons for?
I agree. But such is the nature of police states.
Somewhere in Baldwin’s head is a Libertarian screaming to be free.
I am disgusted by the number of so-called “constitutional conservatives” who are cheering for unlawful police brutality against ANY U.S. citizen. You are no better than the leftists that cheered on Lois Lerner.
You’re giving BB brain too much credit.
But how can you ticket someone who has no ID, and could thus offer just about any fictitious name and false address?
Not a warrant, but writing a ticket for breaking a law. It is a summons to appear in court at a later date, if you don’t want to pay the fine.
Hmmm, he must be hitting the sedatives
“When police are handing out a summons to someone who has no ID, they bring the person to the police station.”
What do they do if you are an illegal? Or if you are just trying to vote?
Probably made a quick trip to Colorado.
If he can’t slime,insult and degrade his own daughter why should we be surprised when he does the same with the NYPD?
Judging by my own experience(s) with the NYPD and from reports recounted to me by others the only way an incident like this would get one arrested is if you decided to be an @$$h0le with them. If one is polite when questioned by NYPD and co-operates with them you will not have “problems”.
Unfortunately Arec Barwin just doesn’t seem to have that ability too be respectful, polite and co-operative. Plain speaking .... HE’s an IDIOT!
Stephen must be praying for his brother to hit rock bottom.
since when must you have id on you just to live your life? you have a certain period of time to produce id if asked.
he got arrested for going nuts.
Of all the crime to go after in New York city!
Stake out the mayors office and start arresting the city council if you want to do good.
Maybe he thought he was in Paris. We were really surprised how many bikers rode their bikes on the wrong side there. We also saw a couple of accidents from wrong side bikers. Maybe Eric Baldwin should go there.
