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.
