30 Rock star Alec Baldwin was arrested Tuesday and issued two summonses, one for disorderly conduct, after riding a bicycle the wrong way on a New York street, police said. Baldwin’s response was reportedly yelling profanity and insults at the officers.

“Police stated that he got belligerent and started arguing with them and using profanity,” Deputy Chief Kim Y. Royster said. “‘I don’t have ID. Just give me the f–king summonses…”

In a statement, a representative for Baldwin said, “He is back home with his family.”

Aruging with police never ends well, so Baldwin followed with comments on Twitter. Baldwin posted a message with the name and badge number of one of the officers who “arrested me and handcuffed me for going the wrong way on Fifth Ave.”

“Meanwhile, photographers outside my home ONCE AGAIN terrified my daughter and nearly hit her with a camera. The police did nothing” Baldwin tweeted. He added, “New York City is a mismanaged carnival of stupidity that is desperate for revenue and anxious to criminalize behavior once thought benign.”

Sadly, Baldwin rants in his past seems to discredit him somewhat: calls reporter “Coon” and “Crackhead in early 2013 and then made headlnes last summer with a homophobic rant. In November, Baldwin chased a photographer outside his Manhattan apartment and using an anti-gay slur toward the man, according to TMZ.
