The actor Alec Baldwin was arrested Tuesday morning for riding his bicycle the wrong way on a Manhattan street, and then arguing with officers who stopped him, the police said.

Mr. Baldwin, whose often volcanic temper has made him a frequent target of tabloid attention, was issued two criminal summonses, one for the traffic offense and one for disorderly conduct, the police said. He was released before noon.

While a spokeswoman did not respond to a request for comment, responses in Mr. Baldwin’s voice soon poured forth on the Twitter account of his foundation.

“New York City is a mismanaged carnival of stupidity that is desperate for revenue and anxious to criminalize behavior once thought benign,” read one message, posted roughly an hour after his release. Shortly before, a message was posted with the name and badge number of one of the officers who “arrested me and handcuffed me going the wrong way on Fifth Ave.”

The encounter began around 10:15 at the intersection of 16th Street and Fifth Avenue, where Mr. Baldwin was approached by police officers after riding the wrong way on Fifth Avenue.

Mr. Baldwin, who did not have proper identification on him, became belligerent and argumentative with the officers, the police said. It was not immediately known what he said to them.

He was placed under arrest and taken to the 13th Precinct station house where he could be properly identified, the police said.

Mr. Baldwin’s arrest came amid a citywide effort on Tuesday, with another push planned on Friday, by the Police Department to crack down on traffic infractions, especially cellphone usage by drivers and failure to yield to pedestrians reported by the New York Times.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
