ALEC Baldwin was arrested in New York.

The 56-year-old actor was handcuffed and taken away in a police car after he was caught riding his push bike the wrong way down Fifth Avenue in New York City, before going "ballistic" at the two arresting female officers.

The '30 Rock' star was asked to provide identification following his arrest but after he failed to do so, he was taken into custody at 13th Precinct and given two summons, one for traffic violation and a second for disorderly conduct, according to the MailOnline.

Alec was released from custody shortly afterwards and returned to his apartment in New York to be greeted by a flock of photographers and reporters.

The star had a disgruntled expression on his face as he made his way inside his home, before taking to his Twitter account to share his version of the event.

He tweeted: "Officer Moreno arrested me and handcuffed me for going the wrong way on Fifth Ave."

Alec's wife Hilaria followed him inside, carrying their eight-month-old daughter Carmen, and shouted at the press.

The actor added: "Meanwhile, photographers outside my home ONCE AGAIN terrified my daughter and nearly hit her with a camera. The police did nothing. (sic)".

Alec also has 18-year-old daughter Ireland from his previous relationship with Kim Basinger.
