(Photo by Greg Allen/Invision/AP, file) (Newser) – Alec Baldwin was arrested in New York City this morning—not, as you might have guessed, for roughing up a paparazzo, but for illegal biking. TMZ reports that Baldwin was allegedly bicycling the wrong way down Fifth Avenue, and didn't have his ID on him when police stopped him. He was taken to the station. Details are sketchy—In Touch has two sources, one of whom says Baldwin was "calm and quiet," while the other claims the actor "went ballistic" and was "screaming" at the cops.
