A rep for Baldwin did not immediately return PEOPLE’s request for comment.

It was not immediately clear if Baldwin has a lawyer for this arrest who could comment on his behalf.

Baldwin has had at least one physical altercation in public in the past. In 2013, the father-of-five was photographed in an apparent fight with a paparazzo, according to ABC News. Photographs of the incident appeared to show Baldwin pinning the man down on a parked vehicle.

The NYPD told ABC News at the time that no police report was filed.

Recently, Baldwin and his wife Hilaria, 34, celebrated Halloween by dressing their family up in matching astronaut costumes and sharing the photos to Instagram.
