He is expected to be charged with assault in the third degree, a misdemeanor crime carrying a maximum punishment of one year in jail.

Actor and comedian Alec Baldwin, no stranger to flashes of temper, was arrested Friday for allegedly punching a man in the face in a dispute over a parking spot, police sources told PIX11. The actor allegedly punched the other man in response.

Police told the station that Baldwin was trying to hold a parking spot open near his home, when someone else took the spot.

It happened around 1 p.m. on East 10th Street near Union Square West in Greenwich Village.

Baldwin was arrested in May 2014 after allegedly arguing with police about riding his bike the wrong way down Fifth Avenue.

It's not the first time Baldwin has run into trouble with the law.

Baldwin and his wife share four children, Romeo, 5 months, Leonardo, 2, Rafael, 3, and Carmen, 5.

Trump, who has feuded with Baldwin in the past over the actor's "SNL" impression, said "I wish him luck" when asked about the arrest by reporters on Friday afternoon, according to NBC.

Reporters were eager to get a response from President Trump after Alec Baldwin was arrested.

The former 30 Rock star, who is perhaps best known these days for his portrayal of President Donald Trump on Saturday Night Live, also hosts a new talk show that debuted in October.
