Who knew you could be arrested for riding your bike?
Alec Baldwin learned this the hard way. He was arrested Tuesday morning for riding his bike the wrong way down the street.
According to the police, two officers noticed the 56-year-old riding the wrong way on 16th Street and Fifth Avenue. They then asked Baldwin to show identification (did they not recognize him already?), and Baldwin responded by acting belligerently toward the officers while he was in custody.
Police said Baldwin was ended up with two tickets: one for riding a bike the wrong way, and another for disorderly conduct.
Of course, the always-outspoken Baldwin has taken to Twitter to comment on his arrest:
Officer Moreno, badge number 23388, arrested me and handcuffed me for going the wrong way on Fifth Ave— ABFoundation (@ABFalecbaldwin) May 13, 2014
Meanwhile, photographers outside my home ONCE AGAIN terrified my daughter and nearly hit her with a camera. The police did nothing.— ABFoundation (@ABFalecbaldwin) May 13, 2014
New York City is a mismanaged carnival of stupidity that is desperate for revenue and anxious to criminalize behavior once thought benign.— ABFoundation (@ABFalecbaldwin) May 13, 2014
A representative for Baldwin didn't immediately return a request for comment.
