NEW … I ran into Alec Baldwin on the Upper East Side pic.twitter.com/8pG5Vpshw2— Jon Levine (@LevineJonathan) December 7, 2021
The 63-year-old had to be restrained by Hilaria Baldwin after NY Post reporter Jon Levine followed him, asking him questions.
Levine asked: "Wait, Mr. Baldwin, I have to ask you, what brings you to New York City?
Hilaria, whilst recording the reporter on her iPhone, responded: "I asked you to leave."
But the reporter continued to persist by asking: "Mr. Baldwin, why, who’s here?" to which Hilaria then fired back at him: "I asked you to go away. Please go away."
The actor then appeared to completely snap and began to storm up to the reporter whilst pointing his umbrella at him.
Baldwin shouted: "You are not allowed to photograph onto somebody’s private home. You can’t photograph onto somebody’s private home."
Levine hit back: "This is not [inaudible]– this is public property."
Hilaria then said: "Go away. Stop it."
As the door shut and the couple walked into the home, he attempted to ask some final questions about the Halyna Hutchins incident: "Who’s here?
"Did you really not pull the trigger?
"Do you believe it went off without you pulling the trigger? Was it a malfunction?"
In a recent exclusive interview with ABC's George Stephanopoulos, Baldwin claimed he 'didn't pull the trigger' that killed Hutchins on the set of Rust.
He told the host that the gun inexplicably went off after he picked it up.
Baldwin said: "I think back, I think, 'What could I have done?'.
Asked by @GStephanopoulos how a real bullet got on the "Rust" set, Alec Baldwin says: “I have no idea. Someone put a live bullet in a gun. A bullet that wasn’t even supposed to be on the property.”— ABC News (@ABC) December 1, 2021

"The trigger wasn't pulled, I didn't pull the trigger. I would never point a gun at anyone at point a trigger at them, never."
Adding: "Someone put a live bullet in the gun - a bullet that wasn't even supposed to be on the property."
Baldwin went on to talk about Ms Hutchins, who he said was an amazing person who everyone loved working with.
He said: "She was someone who was loved by everyone who worked with and liked by everyone who worked with - and admired.
"Even now I find it hard to believe, it just doesn't seem real to me."
As a result of the discharge, Hutchins, 42, was killed and the film's director Joel Souza was injured.
