Baldwin clashes with photographer

Alec Baldwin clashed with a photographer in New York on Thursday just hours after his hospital scare - prompting police to restrain the star outside his apartment building.

Baldwin was admitted to hospital in the early hours of the morning following a 911 call from his home, believed to have been made by his 14-year-old daughter, Ireland. He was quickly released from the medical facility and a representative for the star called the admission a "misunderstanding".

Baldwin carried on with his work schedule on Thursday morning and upon returning to his apartment at the end of the day he was greeted by a throng of paparazzi and reporters waiting outside.
As Baldwin entered the building he was swarmed by snappers, and the New York Daily News reports one of the crowd tapped him on the arm, while Baldwin yelled, "Don't touch me! I'm calling the cops!"
Shortly afterwards four police cars arrived on the scene, and footage obtained by ETOnline shows the actor rush out of the building and allegedly grab one of the photographers by the jacket, before being pushed away by two cops.

A source tells Radar Online, "The police entered the lobby and Alec pointed out the (photographer). Then, without any warning, Alec ran out of the lobby into the street, chased by police, and grabbed the jacket of the New York Post photographer - and the police had to restrain him and then brought Alec back inside."

ETOnline reports police made no arrests and no charges are set to be filed following the incident.
