Actor Alec Baldwin punched and shoved New York Daily News photographer Marcus Santos for taking his picture outside New York’s Marriage License Bureau.

Baldwin and his fiancee Hilaria Thomas were at the office to obtain a marriage license. Santos was standing outside the building with two other photographers.

Santos told the New York Daily News: “He was looking mad. He said, ‘Step back, step back.’ I said, ‘We’re moving back.’”

After Baldwin reportedly grabbed another photographer, Santos told the actor to back off: “I said, ‘Don’t touch him'. I knew he was going to attack me. I stepped back, and he kept coming.”

"He comes after me, starts shoving and punching me, one time, right in the chin. And then he started shoving me, and pushing me. Then he goes the other way.”

Baldwin said on Twitter that the photographer almost hit him in the face.
