Maybe actor Alec Baldwin is mad that 30 Rock is no longer on the air? Yeah, that explains why he called a Black New York Post photographer a racial epithet. Details after the jump.
Baldwin allegedly called G.N. Miller a "crackhead" and a "drug dealer" during a confrontation on an East Village street yesterday morning, prompting police to intervene.
The funnyman actor had first been approached by a Post reporter while walking his dogs outside his East 10th Street pad at around 10:50 a.m. He was asked for comment on a lawsuit against his wife, Hilaria, involving her work as a yoga instructor.
The 30 Rock star grabbed the reporter, Tara Palmeri, by her arm and told her, "I want you to choke to death," Palmeri told police, for whom she played an audiotape of the conversation. In addition to being caught in the act via photograph during the verbal spat, Baldwin called a decorated retired detective with the NYPD's Organized Crime Control Bureau and a staff photographer for The Post — a "coon, a drug dealer," Miller's police statement said.
Cops were called, and Miller, 56, and Baldwin, 54, both filed harassment claims against each other.
