Alec Baldwin pleads guilty to harassment over parking spot blow-up

January 23, 2019

Alec Baldwin pleaded guilty on Wednesday to harassment and agreed to take anger management classes over his parking spot blow-up with a Manhattan motorist.

The hot-headed “30 Rock” actor — dressed in an all-black ensemble and matching glasses — made a brief appearance in Manhattan criminal court to resolve the November scuffle with victim Wojciech Cieszkowski.

Baldwin, 60, pleaded guilty to second-degree harassment, a violation, and will pay a $120 fine.

“We have had an opportunity to review video surveillance in this case, speak with the witnesses, review the medical records and speak with the victim,” said prosecutor Ryan Lipes. “Given that Mr. Baldwin does not have a criminal record, we are prepared to offer a harassment violation in the second degree with the the condition that he completes the short anger management program.”

Baldwin initially faced misdemeanor attempted assault and harassment charges after Cieszkowski told police Baldwin slugged him during a Nov. 2 argument over a parking spot on East 10th Street near Fifth Avenue.

The “Saturday Night Live” star denied throwing a punch — but admitted getting handsy with the driver.

“He’s an a–—-e. He stole my spot,” Baldwin told officers at the scene, according to court papers. “I did push him.”

Neither Baldwin nor his attorneys commented.

In court, one of his lawyers, Alan Abramson, said his case would be sealed.

Baldwin has to complete the anger management classes by his next court date on March 22.
