A serious bicycling offence, that is.... Still, he went typically balubas all the same.

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 the usual disgruntled expression on his face as he made his way inside his home. His wife Hilaria followed him inside, carrying their eight-month-old daughter Carmen, and shouted at the press.

Baldwin then took to Twitter  to share his version of the event. These are only some of the tweets regarding the incident, there are looooaads...
