Actor Alec Baldwin, who won an Emmy for his unfavorable impersonation of President Donald Trump, was reportedly arrested in New York City Friday after punching someone out over a parking space. A heated argument followed and Baldwin punched the man in the face.

Baldwin punched a 49-year-old man, injuring the left side of his jaw around 10th Street in Manhattan's West Village, police said.

President Trump, who Baldwin famously portrays on Saturday Night Live, was asked about the arrest and said, "I wish him luck".

According to a preliminary investigation, Baldwin had someone holding a parking spot for him and while he was moving his vehicle to the spot, someone else took the space, a senior law enforcement official told The Daily Beast.

Alec Baldwin is in custody after getting arrested for assault, according to police. He was ordered to appear in court November 26.

The most recent episode, with less than 1.5 million viewers, had the smallest audience of any prime-time program on the top four broadcast networks over the past week, the Nielsen company said. And in 2014, police arrested Baldwin after he was riding his bike the wrong way on the street and acting belligerent toward officers.

Baldwin didn't comment as he walked past reporters and photographers to a waiting SUV. I'm beginning to crave. As he gets into the auto, someone shouts, "Hey, Alec, can't you afford a garage at this point with the money you make?"
