Fiery actor Alec Baldwin was arrested Friday after allegedly punching someone in New York City's West Village neighborhood, Fox News has confirmed.

Police sources tell us Baldwin is currently in custody after getting into an argument over a parking spot. Charges against the actor are pending.

A rep for the actor did not immediately return Fox News' request for comment.

Baldwin lives in the downtown Manhattan neighborhood with his wife, Hilaria Baldwin, and their four children.

This is not the first arrest for the notoriously hot-headed actor. Baldwin was arrested in 2014 after he became belligerent with a police officer who stopped him on his bike after he was riding in the wrong direction.

NYPD told Fox News at the time that Baldwin, who had no ID, "refused to [identify] himself, became belligerent, cursing and yelling. He was then placed in handcuffs."

Baldwin went on a Twitter rant after his arrest, posting the arresting officer's name and badge number. The actor tweeted that he was taken into custody while "photographers outside my home ONCE AGAIN terrified my daughter and nearly hit her with a camera. The police did nothing."

He then added, "New York City is a mismanaged carnival of stupidity that is desperate for revenue and anxious to criminalize behavior once thought benign."

In 2011, the former "30 Rock" star was removed from a flight after refusing to stop playing the game "Words With Friends" on his phone. In 2012, he was accused by a photographer of getting aggressive with him on a New York City street, and in 2013 another photographer filed a harassment claim against Baldwin.
