Alec Baldwin slammed by NYPD Hispanic Society
Alec Baldwin leaves his apartment Tuesday as his wife, Hilaria, looks on. The actor has now upset the leader of the NYPD Hispanic Society for his behavior after cops stopped him for bicycling the wrong way.
Cycling sourpuss Alec Baldwin’s latest tantrum has irritated the head of the NYPD’s Hispanic Society, who berated the actor Wednesday for his boorish behavior toward two female cops.
“Shame on Mr. Baldwin for not having his ID. Does he expect special privilege because he’s an actor?” said Det. Dennis Gonzalez.
Baldwin was nabbed Tuesday for riding his bike the wrong way down a Manhattan street by two female officers.
Asked to produce identification, he grew belligerent, witnesses said.
Mayor de Blasio, who counted Baldwin among his earliest supporters, gave a lukewarm response when asked about the “30 Rock” star Wednesday.
A look at Baldwin’s babble in recent years.
“I think it’s unfortunate. I respect him, I think he has said some important and thoughtful things about this city over the years, but this is an unfortunate situation,” de Blasio said.
“It’s self-evident what happened and now we move on,” the mayor said.
Baldwin, 56, was arrested for disorderly conduct and taken to the 13th Precinct stationhouse.
He later used Twitter to criticize Rosario Montero, one of the police officers who stopped him.
“My only point is that claims by (Montero) of disorderly conduct are either a distortion or outright lie. (Montero) lied in her report,” he tweeted.
That didn’t sit well with Det. Gonzalez, who said Montero, on the force since 2006, did everything by the book.
“Officer Rosario Montero conducted herself in a professional manner. She should not have to tolerate verbal abuse from Mr. Baldwin,” Det. Gonzalez said.
He noted that the Hollywood hothead has a long history of altercations with cops and paparazzi — and also spouting off about his run-ins on Twitter.
He’s in (the) street, screaming at her, spittle coming off his mouth. But the fact is he got treated like anyone else.
“Mr. Baldwin stated the last time he was leaving the city because of the paparazzi. Maybe if he left this never would have happened,” Gonzalez observed.
Baldwin insisted on Twitter that he hadn’t expected special treatment.
“I told both officers I was happy to accept the summons and go. One officer seemed inclined toward that. (Montero) did not,” he wrote.
But two sources said the actor was underplaying his role in his own arrest.
While Alec Baldwin wasn’t able to escape a crush of paparazzi Tuesday, on Wednesday he was calm, cool and even gentle with shutterbugs snapping his every move.
“He’s in street, screaming at her, spittle coming off his mouth. But the fact is he got treated like anyone else,” said one source.
“The guy went completely ballistic. He’s not a nice guy. He was nasty, dropping F-bombs,” said the other source.
Baldwin traded two wheels for four Wednesday morning, leaving his East Village apartment in the back of a black Lincoln town car for a short trip to the Public Theater on Lafayette St.
The normally volatile Baldwin remained cool and silent in a black jacket and grey pants as he was photographed outside his home.
It was a change of pace for Baldwin, who has had a series of high-profile run-ins with tabloid reporters that have resulted in allegations he called one a gay slur and threatened to slug another.
