Actor Alec Baldwin allegedly punched a New York Daily News photographer in the face outside Manhattan’s Marriage License Bureau, according to ABC News.

Photographer Marcus Santos told the New York Daily News: “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.”

The volatile “30 Rock” star was obtaining a license to wed fiancee and yoga teacher Hilaria Thomas.

“He was looking mad,” said Santos. “He said, ‘Step back, step back.’ I said, ‘We’re moving back.’”

Baldwin later took to Twitter to defend himself, even coining a new hashtag:
