Alec Baldwin Pleads Guilty To Harassment After Parking Spot Dispute

The actor has appeared before a court in New York City following a parking dispute last November.

Baldwin was accused of punching a man over a parking spot late last year near his home in the city's lower east side.

The 30 Rock actor has avoided the more serious charge of attempted assault, pleading guilty to second-degree harassment, ABC 7 reports.

Court documents show that while Baldwin admitted he pushed a 49-year-old for taking his parking spot, he denied that he punched him.

Baldwin agreed to take short-term anger management classes and pay a $120 USD surcharge.

The Manhattan District Attorney's Office gave the actor the offer of pleading guilty to a violation -- and not a crime --  after reviewing video footage and interviewing witnesses who were present during the incident.

Following the court's decision, Baldwin hit out at Fox News for reporting that he had "allegedly" punched someone.

Baldwin spoke out after the dispute last year, asserting on Twitter that reports of the disagreement had been embellished by the media.

"Normally, I would not comment on something as egregiously misstated as today's story," Baldwin wrote after the November 2nd dispute. "However, the assertion that I punched anyone over a parking spot is false. I wanted to go on the record stating as much," he added.
