Actor Alec Baldwin, most recently famous for his comic impersonations of U.S. President Donald Trump, was arrested on Friday in NY over a fight for a parking spot, police said.

The Associated Press reported that the actor was taken into custody just before 2 PM ET, and TV station NBC 4 NY reported that that NYPD said Baldwin is now being processed.

One year before that, Baldwin pushed a New York Post reporter into a parked auto.

Baldwin then followed the man to the Muni-meter and punched him, police said. The actor is now in custody at the 6th Precinct in Manhattan.

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 30 Rock star was reportedly arrested after getting into an argument with another man over a parking spot near 10th Street and 5th Avenue.

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

Sure, driving in Manhattan is aggravating, but this is ridiculous, Alec Baldwin.

According to WNBC, the victim was taken to Lenox Hill Hospital after complaining of pain.

Baldwin, who portrays President Donald Trump on "SNL", also yelled a profane comment during the alleged melee. When asked about Baldwin's arrest, the USA president said: "I wish him luck". This unnamed motorist, law enforcement sources tell TMZ, "swooped in" on a spot that Alec was "apparently planning to take for himself".
