Baldwin's rep did not confirm the "disorderly conduct" but did tell ET that he was riding his bicycle on the wrong side and did not have his ID on him. A source for ET insists the actor was not arrested nor charged with a crime, but rather received a summons relating to the bicycle incident and had to be transported to the precinct in handcuffs because he didn't have his ID.
