Alec Baldwin was arrested Friday in New York City after a dispute over a parking spot allegedly became physical, a New York Police Department spokeswoman confirmed to HuffPost.

It happened around 1 p.m. on East 10th Street near Union Square West in Greenwich Village.

The Associated Press reported that the actor was taken into custody just before 2 PM ET, and TV station NBC 4 NY reported that that NYPD said Baldwin is now being processed.

Police sources told ABC News that Baldwin could be charged with assault after he allegedly punched a man in a fight over a parking space near the actor's home.

"New York City is a mismanaged carnival of stupidity that is desperate for revenue and anxious to criminalize behavior once thought benign", Baldwin tweeted after the incident.

A rep for the star, who has been getting a lot of attention for playing Trump on Saturday Night Live the last two years, has not yet responded to Yahoo's request for comment.

Baldwin has revived his career by doing impersonations of Donald Trump on Saturday Night Live. According to the NYPD spokesperson, the fight was allegedly between Baldwin and an unidentified man-"someone in another auto who got to a spot they were both going for".

The driver of the station wagon, 49, was taken to a hospital with jaw pain, police said. When asked about Baldwin's arrest, the U.S. president said: "I wish him luck".

Also that year, his cable talk show was canceled after he allegedly yelled an anti-gay slur at a reporter.
