Alec Baldwin was handcuffed by police Tuesday after he allegedly rode his bike the wrong way on Fifth Avenue and argued with officers who tried to ticket him, NBC 4 New York has learned.
He later tweeted that "New York City is a mismanaged carnival of stupidity that is desperate for revenue and anxious to criminalize behavior once thought benign."
A law enforcement source said Baldwin was seen riding his bike the wrong way near 16th Street in the Flatiron district Tuesday morning and when police stopped to give him a summons, he grew angry.
Baldwin, who was wearing a black jacket, black shorts and a black visor, 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.
He was issued two summonses, one for riding his bike the wrong way and another for disorderly conduct, an NYPD spokesman said.
Baldwin tweeted that "police did nothing" when photographers nearly hit his daughter with a camera outside his home later in the day.

Herr Baldwin, your pappersssss vere NOT in Ordah.
Liberalism for thee but not for me.
Baldwin belongs in jail just for being arrogant and stupid. Too bad neither is a crime.
Baldwin is a liberal elite jackass who genuinely believes that the laws are for the little people and not him. Kudos to the cops who stopped him.
This is kind of funny
Baldwin has a point in his gripe about police selective enforcement. Leftists can block streets and the police show enormous patience then.
But, riding your bike on the wrong side of the road....without your papers, IS against the law (in lib NYC).
Ooo, did he call any of the cops a “stupid little faggot?”
I’d pay to see them ‘helping’ him into the car.
Going the wrong way on a one-way street is reprehensible. Very dangerous to himself and to pedestrians not used to looking downstream for salmon coming up the wrong way who then run them over.
“New York City is a mismanaged carnival of stupidity...”
Well, at least he lives in the right place. Should feel right at home. Model citizen.
Guy should consider himself lucky. The NYPD would have been well within their rights to baton and taze him into submission. And the only people who would care would be Conservatives laughing their butts off watching and rewatching the footage on YouTube.
I’m on Baldwin’s side on this one.
What’s he doing back here — I thought he left years ago.
Maybe now he’ll take the hint.
Been to Manhattan lately?
Hey, Arec Barwin - you can ride your bicycle on the wrong side of the road in Canada - aren’t you supposed to have moved there anyway?
Bicycles in NYC are very dangerous - riding the wrong way on an avenue or side street or sidewalk is reckless.
I thought Baldwin was leaving NYC.
"The secret to happiness is freedom...
And the secret to freedom is courage."
No, not lately. But we're going to be there in September. Got any good restaurant recommendations?
My advice: keep an eye out for careening bicyclists coming at you from uptown and downtown and against the traffic. Especially messengers - the most dangerous of all the bicyclists.
Tad’s Steak House, lol.
Baldwin should of moved to England, Japan, Australia,India or Barbados.
