Alec Baldwin leaves court without comment after guilty plea
Actor Alec Baldwin left a New York courthouse without commenting to reporters on Wednesday (January 23) following pleading guilty to second-degree harassment stemming from an argument over a parking spot last year. The 60-year-old actor, most recently known for his impersonations of U.S. President Donald Trump on "Saturday Night Live," was arrested on Nov. 2 and charged with misdemeanor assault and harassment. The more serious charges of misdemeanor assault and harassment were dropped. As part of his plea, Baldwin agreed to take anger management classes. He was released the same day and was met by a swarm of camera crews. "Normally, I would not comment on something as egregiously misstated as today's story," a post on his foundation's Twitter account said after the incident. "However, the assertion that I punched anyone over a parking spot is false. I wanted to go on the record stating as much." Baldwin won an Emmy award in 2017 for his scathing impressions of Trump. He is also known for his role in NBC's "30 Rock" sitcom.
