Alec BaldwinAlec Baldwin was arrested this morning.

The 56-year-old actor was handcuffed and taken away in a police car after he was caught riding his push bike the wrong way down Fifth Avenue in New York City, before going "ballistic" at the two arresting female officers.

The 30 Rock star was asked to provide identification following his arrest but after he failed to do so, he was taken into custody at 13th Precinct and given two summons, one for traffic violation and a second for disorderly conduct, according to the MailOnline. Alec was released from custody shortly afterwards and returned to his apartment in New York to be greeted by a flock of photographers and reporters.

The star had a disgruntled expression on his face as he made his way inside his home, before taking to his Twitter account to share his version of the event: "Officer Moreno arrested me and handcuffed me for going the wrong way on Fifth Ave."

Alec Baldwin Retires From Public Life

Alec BaldwinDespite quarreling with him on Orphans, Alec Baldwin is apparently taking a cue from Shia LaBeouf.

The 30 Rock actor penned an open letter online claiming that he's retiring from public life. Fed up with what he claims is the media's false, twisted perception of his character, Baldwin uses most of his letter to tell his side of recent news stories that have shed a poor light on him: "But - I’m sorry, I can’t let go of this - do people really, really believe that, when I shouted at that guy, I called him a 'f****t' on-camera? Do you honestly believe I would give someone like TMZ’s Harvey Levin, of all people, another club to beat me with?"

Baldwin additionally points out that all of the bad publicity surrounding him have cost him projects, including his lucrative Capital One deal, which he says he donated all of his fees to charity. Moreover, even though he's known for being a quintessential New Yorker, the 55-year-old contemplates in his letter whether or not he should raise his daughter in L.A. instead, considering the increased paparazzi craze.

"It’s good-bye to public life in the way that you try to communicate with an audience playfully like we’re friends, beyond the work you are actually paid for. Letterman. Saturday Night Live. That kind of thing," the 16-time Saturday Night Live host concludes.

It takes a lot of strength and SUPPORT for someone to grow and become a better person. We all say things we don't mean. We all say things we can't take back... For someone who has battled with anger management issues, my dad has grown tremendously. My dad is not a homophobe or a racist."

In a statement, the 55-year-old star apologized for his choice of words, after reportedly calling the paparazzi photographer a "f**" hours after winning a court case against his stalker.

Genevieve Sabourin with Alec Baldwin insetAlec Baldwin's accused stalker has been sentenced to 30 days in jail.

Genevieve Sabourin, who is on trial for stalking and harassing the former 30 Rock star, was charged with being in contempt of court in Manhattan, New York yesterday morning after she repeatedly heckled a doorman from Alec's building and her own lawyer. The judge ordered that the French-Canadian actress, 41, be jailed for constantly shouting at witnesses during their testimonies after issuing her a warning on Wednesday, after she shouted at Alec and accused him of having a "lying disease" when he denied her claims that they had sex after a dinner date in 2010 and also met in 2002, according to gossip website TMZ.com.

Sabourin argued she had a right to speak out in court because she sometimes has trouble understanding English.

During yesterday's proceeding, Sabourin was also accused of threatening to wage a "massive destructive war" against Alec, worse than his bitter custody battle with his ex-wife Kim Basinger, if he didn't pay for her to move to New York to live with him.

Genevieve SabourinAlec Baldwin's stalker allegedly dreamed of giving birth to his baby.

Canadian actress Genevieve Sabourin, 40, who is accused of harassing the actor and was arrested outside his home in New York City in April, wrote him more than 100 emails in a bid to convince him to get her pregnant, and even told him when she would be ovulating, according to prosecutors in her Manhattan-based trial.

Prosecutor Zachary Stendig read a few of her letters in open court on Thursday,including a passage written by Sabourin that read, "I will be in prime of my ovulation this St. Patrick's Day and the best gift from you of all would be to conceive a mini Baldwin on this Ireland National Day ... accept my proposal and I'll take you straight to heaven. There is many things I will do to you now in order to give you all kinds of delightful pleasure. French are the best lovers in the world and I master my art."

The actress's lawyer Todd Spodek argued that her actions were the result of her desire to seek closure after her brief "sexual relationship" with the former 30 Rock star "crumbled" in 2010: "No contact and no decency. A complete disregard for Miss Sabourin and her emotions. Miss Sabourin was just looking for closure from a difficult relationship."
