(Newser) – Have you been pining for the good old days when Alec Baldwin was in the news for his off-screen antics? If so, your time has come. The Donald Trump impersonator was arrested Friday in New York City after he allegedly punched a man in the jaw over a parking space, TMZ reports, adding that a witness says the actor also advised the alleged victim, a 49-year-old man who was reportedly taken to the hospital, to "f--k off" during the affray. Apparently, Baldwin's buddy was holding the parking spot near 10th Street and 5th Avenue when the other man took it.

As Variety notes, this is far from Baldwin's first episode of acting out in public. In the '90s, he was charged with battery in a case involving a photographer (he was later acquitted). More recently, he starred in: Alec Baldwin arrested for riding a bike the wrong direction on 5th Avenue without ID; Alec Baldwin pins a photographer to the hood of a car; and Alec Baldwin kicked off of a flight for refusing to shut off his cell phone while playing Words with Friends.
