Alec Baldwin Attack on Photographer: Caught on Camera!

by at .

Alec Baldwin may be engaged to a yoga instructor, but the Emmy-winning actor has clearly not reached a state of perpetual zen.

The 30 Rock star flipped out on a Daily News camerman in New York City this morning, as the incident was actually caught on film by another Daily News photographer and reportedly immediately by the newspaper.

Here's what went down:

After picking up the necessary paperwork to go through with their impending nuptials, Baldwin - who was accompanied by fiancee Hilaria Thomas - got into an altercation with Marcus Santos outside the city's Marriage License Bureau.

According to the reporter, Baldwin ordered him to "step back," a request Santos claims he abided by. But the actor supposedly did not listen.

"He comes after me, starts shoving and punching me - one time, right in the chin. And then he started shoving me, and pushing me. Then he goes the other way," Santos says.

Baldwin did not deny an encounter took place, Tweeting not long afterward: A 'photographer' almost hit me in the face with his camera this morning.#allpaparazzishouldbewaterboarded.

The legendary Saturday Night Live host is known as much for his anger as his sense of humor, of course.

He attacked a photographer outside his Central Park West apartment in 2010; was booted off a plane in December for playing Words with Friends; and will never fully live down an incident in 2007 when he blasted his 11-year old daughter as a "thoughtless little pig."
