Police say the actor was taken into custody just before 2pm local time on Friday in Manhattan's Greenwich Village neighbourhood.

The actor and talk show host allegedly punched a man who had parked in a space Baldwin wanted, the NYPD told the paper.

Baldwin, 60, was reportedly upset the man took a parking spot he had been waiting on.

The star's fame has been reaching new highs in recent years ever since he started impersonating the current president on Saturday Night Live. When asked about Baldwin's arrest, the U.S. president said: "I wish him luck". The man was taken to a hospital nearby, where he is being treated in stable condition. A representative for Baldwin declined to comment.

Micron officials allege the company, based in Fujian Province, has violated the United States firm's intellectual property rights. The move is likely futile as "such license applications will be reviewed with a presumption of denial", Commerce says.

Since it's Friday, here's a flashback to when President Trump appeared on Saturday Night Live as himself.

The outspoken critic of Trump, whose career the Republican president once said was only "saved by his bad impersonation of me on SNL", was briefly arrested on Friday afternoon.

Back in 2013, meanwhile, he was caught on camera shouting anti-gay slurs at a photographer outside his apartment in NY - this incident ended in the star's MSNBC show, Up Late With Alec Baldwin, being suspended and eventually cancelled.

Baldwin was booted off an American Airlines flight in 2011 after allegedly getting belligerent with a flight attendant who asked him to stop playing "Words with Friends" and put his cellphone away.
