New York 1’s Myles Miller claims the exact area was at East 10th Street.

“JUST IN: Alec Baldwin was arrested by @NYPD6Pct after he punched a man over a parking dispute on East 10th Street, per police sources,” he tweeted just after 2:00 p.m. ET.

A spokesman for NYPD told CNBC that Baldwin was taken into custody. Additional information is not immediately available at this time.

Baldwin has a record of having a hot temper. In October of 1995, the actor was arrested for allegedly assaulting a photographer for taking footage of his wife, Kim Basinger, and their new child.
