US actor Alec Baldwin has been arrested in New York City, accused of punching a man in a fight over a parking spot.

According to BBC, the actor had been taken into custody and faced a probable charge of assault.

This is not the 60-year-old first run-in with the law – in 2014, he was arrested for disorderly conduct.

The altercation occurred in the West Village area of Manhattan on Friday.

Police told US media the actor had claimed his family member had been holding a spot for his Cadillac Escalade SUV when a man driving a Saab station wagon swooped in and took it.

Police say the two men were arguing and pushing each other before Baldwin swung at the 49-year-old man, who was taken to hospital with jaw pain.

According to NBC New York, he will be charged with third degree assault, which is a misdemeanor, as well as harassment.

The assault charge is punishable by up to one year in jail.
