Alec Baldwin was arrested in New York on Tuesday.
The volatile actor was handcuffed by police officers and taken away in a squad car, with one witness telling In Touch he 'went ballistic on the cops, screaming at them' during the incident which led to his arrest.
The New York Police Department confirmed to MailOnline that Baldwin was stopped at 10.15am Tuesday riding his bike the wrong way on Fifth Avenue, at the corner of 16th Street.
He was asked to provide ID which he didn’t have on him. Officers said that he then started to argue with them and was taken into custody.
