It's sad w the tabloid press. They attempt 2 provoke an incident + when it doesn't pan out, they say u did it anyway... #no1punchedany1
So Tweeted Alec Baldwin yesterday, hours after he got into it with a photographer in New York City, allegedly confronting the reporter for taking pictures of him and fiance Hilaria Thomas after they picked up a marriage license.
But while a witness at the scene agrees Baldwin didn't throw any punches, he does say the 30 Rock star was the instigator in the encounter.
Says Goran Veljic, another photographer standing nearby at the time, to E! News of the two Daily News journalists involved in the dust-up:
"They were surprised when Alec came here. He started to push up his hands to talk nonverbal and pushed one of the photographers."
Was the Emmy winner at least provoked? No, according to Veljic.
"They are professional photographers, they moved back... I've never seen something like this."
Others have, of course. Just ask flight American Airlines flight attendants on Baldwin's flight last December. No charges have been filed against the star at this time.
