Alec Baldwin is speaking out after being charged with misdemeanor assault and harassment following his arrest on Friday. The Oscar nominee was charged with assault and harassment and given a desk appearance ticket, the NYPD said, reports USWeekly.com.

The Mission: Impossible Fallout actor took to Twitter after being released from custody Friday to deny claims that he punched a man over a parking dispute. “Normally, I would not comment on something as egregiously misstated as today’s story,” he wrote on the Hilaria and Alec Baldwin Foundation account, adding, “However, the assertion that I punched anyone over a parking spot is false. I wanted to go on the record stating as much. I realize that it has become a sport to tag people w as many negative charges and defaming allegations as possible for the purposes of clickbait entertainment. Fortunately, no matter how reverberating the echos, it doesn’t make the statements true (sic).”

 

A New York City police chief also confirmed that “Alec did not punch the guy.”
