Baldwin was arrested on November 2.

Police were told a driver pulled into a Manhattan parking space that one of Baldwin’s relatives was holding for him, and the two men started quarrelling and pushing each other.

The other driver told police Baldwin punched or slapped him.

The 49-year-old man was taken to hospital complaining of jaw pain and redness around his neck.
