AceShowbiz - Alec Baldwin is officially facing two charges over his recent arrest following his arraignment on Monday, November 26.
The "30 Rock" star was arrested and charged with assault and harassment following an alleged altercation over a parking space in New York earlier this month.
On Monday, the actor was arraigned and charged with misdemeanour attempted assault in the third degree and harassment in the second degree, a violation. Baldwin did not enter a plea and was released without bail. He is due back in court on 23 January (19).
According to The Blast, the alleged victim stated in court documents, "I observed the defendant push me and then strike me across the left side of my face with his closed right hand, resulting in pain to my face."
Baldwin allegedly admitted he pushed the man after he "stole" his parking spot. However, he has previously denied that he "punched anyone..."
"Normally, I would not comment on something as egregiously misstated as today's story. However, the assertion that I punched anyone over a parking spot is false," he wrote on Twitter after the arrest. "I wanted to go on the record stating as much. I realise that it has become a sport to tag people (with as) many negative charges and defaming allegations as possible for the purposes of clickbait entertainment."
He added, "Fortunately, no matter how reverberating the echos (sic), it doesn't make the statements true."
And Baldwin's lawyer, Alan Abramson, insists his client will be found not guilty of the allegations.
"Mr. Baldwin did not commit any crime, and we are confident that once this matter is fully investigated, it will be resolved swiftly and appropriately in court," he says.
