Alec Baldwin hits back over slander allegation | Daily Celebrity News | Splash TV

Alec Baldwin’s lawyers have slammed a man
suing the actor for slander following a row over a parking space. The actor was charged with harassment last
November following the argument in New York and last month. Wojciech Cieszkowski filed a lawsuit against
the ‘Saturday Night Live’ star in which he claimed he punched him during the altercation. The slander allegation relates to comments
made by Baldwin when he went on the ‘Ellen DeGeneres Show’, on which he said he thought
Wojciech was going to run over his wife Hilaria. Since then Alec’s legal team have claimed
Wojciech is trying to turn a minor incident into a “multi-million dollar lottery ticket”. According to the New York Post newspaper,
they also insisted Alec was simply stating his opinion and didn’t accuse the man of a
serious crime, so there was no slander. The lawyers also pointed out the whole parking
space argument was caught on video by CCTV. They insisted the footage contradicted Wojciech’s
claim that the actor “lorded over him” while he cowered in front on a meter. Alec pleaded guilty to harassment for the
incident and was sentenced to take an anger management class and pay a $120 fine.
