    Personally I think Alec Baldwin should be arrested just for being Alex Baldwin. He is a buffoon.

    This is a guy who seriously seems to hate living in NYC and I'm unclear why he does.

    I can commiserate when the paparazzi are being annoying, but he's clearly wrong in this case, had no cause to "go off" on the cops and makes me now wonder if he has some mental problems.

    He doesn't currently have a TV show to give him publicity so he's got to get it somehow.

    Most if not all U.S. cities are coming down and people for the dumbest lost laws ever 'cause they need/want cash. That's it, there isn't any more.
    You see, their morals, their code...it's a bad joke, dropped at the first sign of trouble. They're only as good as the world allows them to be. I'll show you. When the chips are down, these...These "civilized" people...they'll eat each other. See, I'm not a monster. I'm just ahead of the curve

    His sense of entitlement seems a bit larger than most folks. I've never been a fan, and don't want to take too much pleasure in his situation. After all, bad publicity is better than none at all, and he does find a way to get his face in the news.

    Puzzled by this post. Not sure if you are stating that riding a bike the wrong way in traffic, on a one-way street is a "dumbest lost law" ? as in a stupid thing to enforce ?.

    It's not a lost law, it's a good law and I only wish the NYPD would do more ticketing of wrong-way cyclists.

    No one can tell me what/where the safest place for me is at any moment in time but me, if that means breaking a "one way" law while riding my bicycle so be it. Does that mean I intentionally break the law on a daily basis? No, it means Ill do what I must to stay alive and unbroken. BTW I feel its not a good law. Heres a question: If you knew your life would be on the line would you be willing to die to obey that one way only law? If so go for it! If not? well my friend if not that makes it a dumb lost law. (Please don't base your answer on the Alec Baldwin B.S. we know he was going the wrong way for no apparent reason)

    so, you can play that game, but we can't? Your argument is not good. One way streets are there for a reason, as are laws. Break them at your own risk. Asking if we would follow a law or lose our lives is more than a bit silly. Not really worthy of an answer.

    Arresting someone because they don't have ID??
    You folks think that is RIGHT?
    His violation was minor- a summons-ticket-offense.
    But no ID so cop arrested him??
    That is BS even if you think he is an AH?
    He is a funny -and a good actor
    His doper brother-worlds dumbest etc-is pretty funny also.

    In any case- arrested for BS like that??
    If I screw up-run a light-but not drinking not texting-and I T- bone one of you-mangle or croak you
    I WON'T be arrested.
