(NEW YORK) — Alec Baldwin was involved in an altercation with a paparazzi in New York City on Tuesday, his latest confrontation with the ubiquitous photo-takers who track the moves of celebrities.
According to TMZ, which first reported the news, the photographer, who has not been named in the account, nor by authorities, claimed the opposite was true. “All I can say is I was doing my job asking him normal questions and he flipped,” he told TMZ. “That’s all.”
“The photographer was the aggressor,” a source told ABC News. “He even chased Alec’s wife [Hilaria] into a store after the incident.”
The website later reported that both parties admitted to pushing each other.
When contacted by ABC News, Lt. Karen Anderson of the New York Police Department said that “nobody got hurt” and that no police report was filed.
A rep for Baldwin had no comment.
Baldwin, 55, and his wife, 29, welcomed a daughter, Carmen Gabriela, in New York City last Friday.
