(Newser) – Alec Baldwin was in court Monday to plead not guilty to assault and harassment charges stemming from a New York City parking dispute. Baldwin is alleged to have pushed and hit a man during the argument about a parking spot near Baldwin's Greenwich Village apartment building on Nov. 2; the man allegedly pulled into a spot someone was holding for Baldwin. The actor allegedly told police officers after the incident, "He's an a------. He stole my spot. I did push him." But in court, his lawyer said "incontrovertible video evidence" will show Baldwin did not commit a crime, NBC News reports. He was released on his own recognizance and is due back in court Jan. 23, ABC News reports. (Baldwin previously called stories about the allegations "clickbait entertainment.")
