Alec Baldwin charged with assault, harassment

Authorities have charged Alec Baldwin with assault and harassment after he was arrested for allegedly striking a man in the face during a dispute over a parking spot outside the actor's New York City home.

Baldwin was taken into custody just before 2 p.m. Friday in Manhattan's West Village neighborhood. He was released two hours later. A court appearance has been scheduled for Nov. 26.

Baldwin didn't comment as he walked past reporters and photographers to a waiting SUV.

Police say Baldwin claimed he had a family member holding the spot when a man driving a station wagon pulled up and took it.

Officials say the men were arguing and pushing each other before the 60-year-old Baldwin hit the other man.

The 49-year-old station wagon driver was taken to a hospital with jaw pain.
