Alec Baldwin pleads guilty after altercation over parking space: report


Alec Baldwin is reportedly pleading guilty to second-degree harassment following a physical dispute over a New York parking spot.

The actor — who has a recurring role playing President Trump on “Saturday Night Live” — was arrested in November and had been charged with misdemeanor assault.

On Wednesday, Baldwin admitted to pushing the man, claiming he stole the parking spot, according to court documents cited by New York’s WABC-TV.

But the 60-year-old Emmy winner’s lawyers said video evidence supported Baldwin’s claim that he never punched the man. As part of his plea, Baldwin reportedly agreed to attend short-term anger management classes.

Baldwin’s attorney noted that the actor pleaded guilty to a violation, not a crime, WABC reported.

Baldwin seemingly referenced the arrest during a December appearance on “SNL.” Appearing as Trump alongside Ben Stiller as the president’s former lawyer, Michael Cohen, Baldwin quipped, “I haven’t been this upset since I flipped out over that parking space.”
