Alec Baldwin attacked a New York Post photographer, yelling “This guy! This guy!,” as a crowd of reporters and police watched, the New York Daily News reports.
Furthermore, a source who the Daily News says is a pal of Baldwin’s told the paper (referring to Baldwin’s ex-wife, Oscar-winning actress Kim Basinger): "This is another example of Kim’s sickness. Alec came back from the hospital and there were cameras outside his house at 2 a.m. Gee, I wonder how they found out?"
Baldwin was apparently upset with the media attention on Thursday, Feb. 11th, the same day that he was released from the hospital after being rushed there because his daughter called 911. His daughter reportedly told 911 that her dad said "I’m going to take some pills. I’m going to end this." Baldwin told police when they arrived that he had only taken a sleeping pill but they took him to the hospital anyway. He later put in a day of work at “30 Rock.”
When he got home and found the press waiting for him, the Daily News says, Baldwin grabbed photographer Tim Wiencis by the neck. Police pulled him off and no charges were filed.
