A post on Baldwin’s foundation’s Twitter account said: “Normally, I would not comment on something as egregiously misstated as today’s story.

“However, the assertion that I punched anyone over a parking spot is false.

“I wanted to go on the record stating as much.”

Baldwin is well known for his impersonation of Donald Trump on the US TV sketch show Saturday Night Live.

Asked about the actor’s arrest, Mr. Trump said: “I wish him luck.”

After watching one of Baldwin’s sketches in 2016, the president wrote on Twitter: “Watched Saturday Night Live hit job on me.

“Alec Baldwin portrayal stinks.

“Media rigging election!”

Baldwin also appeared in the Hollywood films Beetlejuice, The Departed and Glengarry Glen Ross.

The actor has a history of losing his temper.

He denied punching a newspaper photographer in 2012 who was trying to take photos of him with his then-fiancee Hilaria Thomas.

Baldwin and Thomas married in 2012 and have four children.

Alec Baldwin charged with assault over the parking

the dispute in New York

US actor Alec Baldwin has been charged with assault in New York City after allegedly punching a man in a fight over a parking spot.

He left a police station in the city after being ordered to appear in court on 26 November.

This is not 60-year-old Mr. Baldwin’s first run-in with the law – in 2014, he was arrested for disorderly conduct.

The actor starred in the movie Hunt for Red October and more recently in TV shows 30 Rock and Saturday Night Live.

The alleged altercation occurred in the West Village area of Manhattan on Friday.

Police told US media the actor had claimed his family member had been holding a spot for his Cadillac Escalade SUV when a man driving a Saab station wagon swooped in and took it.

Police say the two men were arguing and pushing each other before Mr. Baldwin swung at the 49-year-old man, who was taken to hospital with jaw pain.

Mr. Baldwin

After he was charged with misdemeanor assault and harassment, Mr. Baldwin denied that he had hit anyone.

“The assertion that I punched anyone over a parking spot is false. I wanted to go on the record stating as much,” he tweeted.

US President Donald Trump, whom Mr. Baldwin has portrayed on the comedy show Saturday Night Live, said when asked about the arrest: “I wish him luck.”

Mr. Baldwin has made headlines before for his anger issues.

New York police arrested him in May 2014 after he was caught riding his bicycle the wrong way in traffic and then became belligerent, swearing at the officers.

He was given summonses for the bike violation as well as disorderly conduct.

Mr. Baldwin tweeted angrily about the incident, calling New York City “a mismanaged carnival of stupidity” and naming the officer who arrested him.

In 2013, he was suspended from his MSNBC talk show Up Late for using an anti-gay slur when arguing with a photographer in New York City.

The actor later issued an apology,

saying he “did not intend to hurt or offend anyone” with his word choice.

Following the incident, his daughter Ireland also defended him on Twitter, saying that “for someone who has battled with anger management issues, my dad has grown tremendously”.

Mr. Baldwin and his daughter have had a tense relationship in the past.

He apologized publicly in 2007 for calling his then-11-year-old daughter a “rude, thoughtless little pig” in a voicemail after the message went viral online.

In 2011, Mr. Baldwin has kicked off a flight after refusing to turn off his phone. The actor said he was playing Words with Friends.

In 1995 he was acquitted of misdemeanor battery charges for punching a photographer in self-defense.
