Actor Alec Baldwin pleaded guilty to harassing a man in a parking spot spat and agreed to complete a one-day anger management class to resolve the criminal case. The 60-year-old actor appeared in a New York City courtroom Wednesday.
He pleaded guilty to harassment in the second degree with a conditional discharge and a short-term anger management program, CBS New York reported.
The charge is a violation, the lowest level of offense. If he completes the anger management class, the case record will be sealed.
Baldwin had been accused of trying to punch another driver during a Nov. 2 argument over a parking spot in front of his Manhattan apartment building. The former 30 Rock star's lawyer had said Baldwin would be vindicated by video evidence.
Baldwin only spoke a few words during the court hearing, mostly answering short questions from the judge. He wouldn't comment afterward.
