NEW YORK - Actor Alec Baldwin was arrested in New York City Friday after a fight over a parking spot, according to TMZ.

TMZ said that the actor, known for his work in movies like the "Mission: Impossible" series and a recurring role as President Donald Trump on sketch series "Saturday Night Live," reportedly got into an argument with another man after he stole a parking spot Baldwin meant to take.

An argument ensued, and TMZ reports Baldwin then punched the other man.

The incident occurred near 10th Street and 5th Avenue in Manhattan, which is the area Baldwin lives in.

According to CNN, as he was heading to a campaign event on Friday, President Trump was asked about Baldwin's arrest. In response, Trump shrugged his shoulders and said, "I wish him luck."

Baldwin will appear in court at a later date, according to the NYPD.

This is a developing story.
