Alec Baldwin was arrested on Friday and is being held by the NYPD 6th Precinct "pending charges of assault," a NYPD spokesperson told EW.

According to Spectrum News NY1 and The Hollywood Reporter, Baldwin allegedly got into a confrontation with a man over and punched the individual.

A rep for Baldwin had no comment, but the actor later responded to his arrest on Twitter.

"Normally, I would not comment on something as egregiously misstated as today's story. However, the assertion that I punched anyone over a parking spot is false, "he tweeted. "I wanted to go on the record stating as much. I realize it has become a sport to day people [with] as many negative charges and defaults as possible for the purposes of clickbait entertainment. Fortunately, no matter how reverberating the echoes, it does not make the statements true. "

Baldwin hosts The Alec Baldwin Show on ABC, and a rep for the network told EW, "His show is scheduled to air on Sunday 11/4 at 10 p.m."

The actor had previous run-ins with the law. In 2014, Baldwin was arrested for disorderly conduct after allegedly riding his bike the wrong way up Fifth Avenue. In 1995, he was placed under citizens arrest, according to the Los Angeles Times, for allegedly punching a photographer documenting his homecoming with his wife at the time, Kim Basinger.

This story was updated with Baldwin's statement on Twitter.
