Another day, another story about Alec Baldwin in some sort of confrontation.

The New York Post is reporting that Baldwin verbally assaulted one of his photographers over the weekend. The Post says that Baldwin used racial slurs against the black photographer, calling him a "coon," "crackhead," and a "drug dealer" on an East Village street. Police did jump in to intervene.

It all started when the "30 Rock" actor was approached by a Post reporter and asked about a lawsuit against his wife. The reporter, Tara Palmeri, was grabbed by the arm by Baldwin, who told her he wanted to choke her, according to Police. Then he addressed the photographer.r with angry words and language

It is reported that the photographer who was assaulted is "decorated retired detective with the NYPD’s Organized Crime Control Bureau and a staff photographer for The Post." His name is G.N. Miller.

One New York State Senator, Malcolm Smith, is calling for Hollywood to respond to Baldwin's behavior.

"If these allegations are true, then no television network or film studio should hire the veteran actor until he seeks help," Smith said.

However, Baldwin took to Twitter to explain his side of the story.

"My publicist has just informed me that the 'photographer' from the Post is claiming I called him a racial epithet, prior to calling the cops. ... That's kind of magical thinking, isn't it? The Post accusing me of racism," he tweeted.

He later removed many of the posts.

Both the photographer, Miller, 56, and Baldwin, 54, filed harassment claims against each other, according to the Post.
