So it turns out Alec Baldwin has a hot temper.

This is not 60-year-old Mr Baldwin's first run-in with the law - in 2014, he was arrested for disorderly conduct. The NYPD said Baldwin will be facing one harassment charge and one misdemeanor third-degree assault charge, with the latter carrying a maximum punishment of one year in jail. The actor allegedly punched the other man in response.

Of course, the internet has some thoughts on Baldwin's offense, given the high profile of his recent bad opinions and Saturday Night Live Trump impression. In 2014, he was arrested in NY after he was stopped for biking the wrong way down a one-way street.
