Alec Baldwin didn't give the media a chance to jump all over a story about an incident that happened Sunday night between himself and a 'New York Post' reporter.
During the incident Baldwin allegedly threatened to choke the New York Post reporter to death and hurled a racial slur at a photographer.
The reporter claims to have audio of the assault, but that has not yet been released.
He tweeted: Thank u 2 NYPD officers who came 2 my home 2day so that I could file a formal complaint against NY Post 'photographer' who assaulted me
He went on to post three additional tweets:
According to the Post, the reporter Tara Palmeri, approached Baldwin while he was walking his dogs to ask him about a recent lawsuit against his wife Hilaria. The reporter says Baldwin responded by grabbing her by the arm and saying, "I want to choke you to death."
Baldwin was involved in two confrontations with photographers last year just days apart -- on June 19 and June 29.
He was also the center of controversy a few years back when he left a threatening message to his then 11-year-ld daughter Ireland.After Ireland failed to answer her father's scheduled morning phone call from New York on April 11, Alec went berserk on her voice mail, saying "Once again, I have made an ass of myself trying to get to a phone," adding, "you have insulted me for the last time."
