Leonard Green reports at the NYPost:
Actor Alec Baldwin allegedly calls a black Post photographer a racial epithet, a "crackhead" and a "drug dealer" during a confrontation on an East Village street yesterday morning, prompting police to intervene.
Baldwin had first been approached by a Post reporter while walking his dogs outside his East 10th Street pad at around 10:50 a.m. He was asked for comment on a lawsuit against his wife, Hilaria, involving her work as a yoga instructor.
The “30 Rock’’ star grabbed the reporter, Tara Palmeri, by her arm and told her, “I want you to choke to death,” Palmeri told police, for whom she played an audiotape of the conversation.
"He then called G.N. Miller -- a decorated retired detective with the NYPD’s Organized Crime Control Bureau and a staff photographer for the Post -- a 'coon, a drug dealer,' Miller’s police statement said," according to the Post.
