#1 Alec Baldwin arrested over allegedly punching a man during a parking spot dispute. Swipe up in Stories & Alec Baldwin Highlights for more info.

According to reports Wojciech Cieszowski -- the man who swooped in and took a parking space that Baldwin believed was his -- told cops Baldwin struck him with his hand. That is more consistent with a slap than a punch. Alec Baldwin may have a good defense in his assault case, because there is some evidence he did not punch his alleged victim as cops first said ... and what went down might not be a crime at all. True enough, a slap can still be assault, but it's generally less serious. What's more ... we're told there is surveillance video, but it's super grainy. You see what appears to be a shoving match between the two men but it's hard to make out if Baldwin actually struck him. Here's the key -- if the 2 men were shoving each other, Baldwin could make the case it was mutual combat and not assault, and therefore not a crime. Cieszowski told cops he suffered face and neck injuries as a result of the alleged attack and was taken to the hospital. As we reported, Baldwin had someone on the street in front of his apartment building blocking an empty space so he could park there. and Cieszowski swooped in and took it. They both got out of the car and started arguing, and that's when the alleged attack went down. Baldwin was arrested, taken to the police station, given a desk appearance ticket for assault and harassment, and he was released. #alecbaldwin

Alec Baldwin says he didn't punch man in parking dispute

NEW YORK — Alec Baldwin is denying that he punched anyone over a parking spot and says an assault allegation is being reported "for the purposes of clickbait entertainment."

The actor was arrested Friday and charged with assault and harassment after allegedly hitting another man in the face during a dispute over a parking spot in New York City.

Baldwin's publicist declined to comment after the arrest. But the actor later tweeted from the account of the Hilaria and Alec Baldwin Foundation that "the assertion that I punched anyone over a parking spot is false. I wanted to go on the record stating as much."

Baldwin complained that it's become "a sport" to tag people with as many "negative charges and defaming allegations as possible for the purposes of clickbait entertainment."

Baldwin, 60, told police a family member was holding the spot in front of his Manhattan home when a man driving a Saab station wagon pulled up and took it.

The driver of the station wagon told police Baldwin hit him with his hand, but he wasn't sure if it was a punch or a slap.

Police said the 49-year-old driver complained of jaw pain and redness in the neck area and was taken to a hospital.

Baldwin was released from the local police precinct in Manhattan's Greenwich Village neighborhood after about two hours. He was ordered to appear in court Nov. 26.

Baldwin, the star of former television sitcom "30 Rock" and current host of "Match Game," plays President Donald Trump on "Saturday Night Live" and recently started a talk show on ABC.
