Oh, Alec. Everything you needed to know about life you should have learned in kindergarten; i.e. keep your hands to yourself even when the paparazzi are snapping hella pics outside of the courthouse where you and your fiancé are getting married. The not-so-unbelievable deets from yesterday’s incident (and today’s That-Ish-Cray Of The Day!) are inside guys.
Alec Baldwin and fiance Hilaria Thomas were on their way into a lower Manhattan office to make it official. After getting their marriage license (uh, CONGRATS!), Alec spotted a photographer from the NY Daily News. The photographer, Marcos Santos, claims that Alec lost it when he saw him and the other photographers taking pictures of the couple on their big day and started coming at Marcos. And then Alec punched him (allegedly) in the face. Which is kind of exactly what looks like happened in that pic. And this one looks pretty bad for Alec too.
Funny then, that Alec would tweet these later that day:
I suppose if the offending paparazzi was wearing a hoodie and I shot him, it would all blow over…

So who do ya’ll believe? A picture’s worth a thousand words and tweets, only 140 characters… lol. NYPD is investigating and the photographer is clearly pressing charges– does he have the right to?
I love me some Alec Baldwin (ahhhh 30 Rock… ahhh State and Main!), but he has been known to uh lose him some temper. There was the cell phone on the plane incident last year (American Airlines kicked him off of the flight for refusing to turn off his cell phone… he was playing a really important game), and remember the awful v-mail he left on his daughter Ireland‘s phone? Nothing like being called a “rude, thoughtless little pig” by Papa Baldwin.
Still, it was his wedding day-ish. Do you guys think he had ample reason to get Cray? And how ’bout that Trayvon Martin reference? Too soon? I think so. Kind of, very much un-related as well.
And poor Hilaria! Probably, not quite the wedding day she’d been dreaming of. Shouts-out to her.
Fun fact: Hilaria and Alec met at a vegan restaurant.
