Alec Baldwin agrees to anger management after parking space row in New York | Ents & Arts News
Alec Baldwin has pleaded guilty to harassment and agreed to take an anger management class following a dispute over a parking space.
The Hollywood actor was accused of trying to punch another driver during a row outside his apartment building in Manhattan’s Greenwich Village in November.
His lawyer had previously said the star would be vindicated by video evidence.
However, he pleaded guilty at his court appearance in New York earlier.
Baldwin, 60, who starred in sitcom 30 Rock and is also known for his impersonations of Donald Trump on US sketch show Saturday Night Live, only spoke a few words during the hearing.
He agreed to complete the one-day anger management class to resolve the criminal case, the court was told.
The charge is a violation, the lowest level of offence in the US.
If Baldwin completes the class, the case record will be sealed – which means that while the record still exists, evidence can be destroyed or returned.
Baldwin did not comment to reporters after the hearing.
