The famed actor was busted by the cops earlier today when he was found riding his bike the wrong way on 16th Street and Fifth Avenue, and apparently Alec not having his State ID handy was a big factor leading up to his arrest. We’re not sure why someone as famous as Alec needs identification, but hey, we guess no one is above the law in NYC.
TMZ reports that he also got really belligerent with the police:
We’re told Alec was taken to the police station so he could be properly identified … standard ops.
Law enforcement sources tell us Alec was belligerent with officers while in custody … which resulted in his getting a ticket for disorderly conduct — on top of the ticket for riding the wrong way.
Sources tell us he was riding alone … it was just for exercise. Alec’s wife was not there.
Alec has since spoken out via Twitter. Really, we should say he was blacking out on Twitter. The site continues:
Alec is going off on Twitter, writing, “Officer Moreno, badge number 23388, arrested me and handcuffed me for going the wrong way on Fifth Ave … Meanwhile, photographers outside my home ONCE AGAIN terrified my daughter and nearly hit her with a camera. The police did nothing.”
“New York City is a mismanaged carnival of stupidity that is desperate for revenue and anxious to criminalize behavior once thought benign.”
Obviously Alec didn’t have a great Tuesday morning. Check out a photo of the actor returning home after his ordeal with the 5-0, above.
