Saturday Night Live's favorite Trump imitator, Alec Baldwin, was arrested today after allegedly punching someone over a parking dispute.

A Baldwin relative was holding a parking spot for the actor, but another driver pulled in first, cops said.

Officers said the men were arguing and pushed each other before Baldwin turned violent. A spokesman for police told WNBC-TV that the "30 Rock" star Baldwin was in custody after the incident in the East Village section of Manhattan.

According to PA, a representative for Baldwin did not immediately respond to a message requesting comment. The NYPD said the actor will be charged with third-degree assault, a misdemeanor, and harassment.

On Friday, a man called 911 to report that Baldwin had punched him in the face.

Back in 2014 the actor was arrested and issued two summonses - one for disorderly conduct - after riding a bicycle the wrong way on a NY street.

Baldwin has also had altercations with photographers from the New York Daily News and the New York Post. The alleged incident took place just months after he was photographed allegedly pushing a man against a auto near NYU's Greenwich Village campus.

Baldwin and Thomas married in 2012 and have four children.

ABC White House Correspondent Tara Palmeri took to Twitter to recall the time Baldwin allegedly told her "hope you choke to death" while she was staking his house out on assignment.

In 2011, Baldwin became unruly on an American Airlines flight when an attendant asked he power off his phone for takeoff.
