Alec Baldwin Detained By Police for Illegally Biking in New York City

Alec Baldwin was reportedly arrested early Tuesday morning (May 13) for riding his bike the wrong way down Fifth Avenue in New York City.

The 56-year-old actor also did not have any identification on him while he was biking. He was taken to the police station, according to People.

“He was riding his bicycle the wrong way on Fifth Avenue and didn’t have ID on him, so he was arrested,” a source said of the incident.

Alec was riding just for exercise and was riding solo- his wife Hilaria was not with him.

Earlier this past month, Alec‘s younger brother Stephen was also arrested in New York City for driving with a suspended license, TMZ reported.

No additional information is available.

    First I just want to say that I loved 30 Rock and how he portrayed a Jack Donaghy but……………how does Alec Baldwin always seem to get into so much trouble! I wouldn’t give his troubles to a monkey on a rock.

  • Shhh

    Illegal biking? So the police really had nothing better to do? What a waste of time and money, really!

  • Haters Suck!

    They seriously arrested him for this? Couldn’t have just given him a ticket and called it a day.

  • Lame

    Seriously you can get arrested for bking at the wrong way in NYC? That is so laughable but at the same time so dumb!! What if he did not know he was biking the wrong way I doubt he did it on purpose.
    Some laws or policies in the US are way too ridiculous and stupid!!

    I’m not a fan of Alec but that’s stupid, they shouldn’t have arrested him. They should have let him off with a warning.

    I get that if you are riding on the road you are supposed to follow the rules of the road and not go the wrong way on a one way street. But since when is it a crime to go outside or ride a bike without ID, you are not required to carry your papers. Besides it’s Alec Baldwin did the cops really have no idea who he was. The cops in this country are completely out of control, there needs to be complete civilian over site and review of all police actions and proper punishments for those officers abusing their power.

    Way too many laws. Most shouldn’t exist.

    It’s pretty obvious when you are biking the wrong way in NYC. It’s called biking against traffic instead of with traffic. That’s because a bicycle is considered a vehicle and you have to adhere to traffic laws such as stopping for lights, yielding to pedestrians, and moving along with traffic. A lot of bikers don’t do this in NYC and they think they can get away with it. Most bikers get written up and given a ticket but because he didn’t have a form of ID on him and he’s probably a big loudmouth, cops detained him. People who bike against traffic knowingly do it because it’s faster to get around so yeah, he did know he was doing something wrong.

    You would be pissed if you were a driver on a dumb-ass biker coming at you.
