The NYPD said Friday afternoon that Baldwin was no longer in custody. He was charged with misdemeanor third-degree assault and harassment.

In addition to playing him on TV, Baldwin is one of Hollywood’s most outspoken critics of Trump.

The president has blasted Baldwin’s “SNL” impression of him before, calling it “terrible.”

Moments after news of Baldwin's arrest emerged, Trump told reporters on the South Lawn of the White House, "I wish him luck."
