Fiery actor and ‘SNL’ star Alec Baldwin has reportedly been arrested in New York City for allegedly punching someone in the face.
Alec Baldwin was five minutes late for his hosting duties on Wednesday RFK Human Rights Ripple of Hope Gala, when a staff member quipped, “man Was that place?”
(He pled not guilty in his case of alleged crime attack on Manhattan motorists.)
On stage, Baldwin broke in his Donald Trump impression, and joked that if bids went high enough for the charity event ” You, too, can be the host of the Oscars if you price. They have an opening!”
But he later flew from the gala fans and photographers snapped pictures of him.

“I have this lot of kick for a while,” Obama told the Ripple of Hope crowd. “Even ran a few campaigns. Thank you for officially validate my lot of credentials.”
We hear Obama talking about President Trump of the stage, but a source caged, “It was an intellectual conversation.”
The gala raised more than $6 million, including a record $200,000 of the live auction, which had art by Paul Gerben.
