An eyewitness revealed the incident went down when Baldwin, 60, had his two Cadillacs on standby, waiting to take a parking spot, when a civilian, Wojciech Cieszkowski, pulled in and parked in the spot instead — and that's when the heated actor went "crazy."
"He started fighting him. Baldwin was like ‘I got my kids in the car, I want this parking spot. I want you to get out of this parking spot right now. I got my kids with me!'"
Baldwin then allegedly proceeded to "get in the man's face," yelled at him and "pushed him two times."
"The guy was scared," the witness told Radar exclusively. "He was terrified. He was nervous, didn’t know what to do. After Baldwin pushed him, he slapped the s**t out of him. He slapped him like three times."
Cieszkowski looked "shook up" said the source. "He was nervous, his face was red. Alec was really aggressive and all in his face. Baldwin just lost it. I got mad. I'm like why is this guy hitting the other guy and he didn't do anything? He was bullying him."
After the alleged assault, Cieszkowski "just froze, had his hands up."
Cieszkowski then proceeded to call police, when Baldwin yelled for his son to get into the car in an attempt to flee the scene.
"But in a blink of an eye, police were already there," the eyewitness said. "They got here so fast."
As readers know, Baldwin was taken into custody after the incident. “He is in custody for assault,” the NYPD told Radar, but has since been released and is at home now.
A video exclusively obtained by Radar shows the heated star leaving the police station after the shocking arrest.
The police added that the alleged victim was taken to a local hospital for observation.
