Short-fused actor Alec Baldwin flipped out on a pair of cops who busted him for riding his bicycle against traffic Tuesday — and wound up in handcuffs again.
“How old are these officers,” Baldwin groused when he was hauled inside Manhattan’s 13th Precinct to face the music. “They don’t even know who I am.”
Deputy Inspector David Ehrenberg, the commanding officer, had no trouble identifying Baldwin, although it wasn’t from his “30 Rock” TV show or his movies.
It was from Baldwin’s “previous run-ins with the law,” an NYPD spokesman said.
Slapped with a disorderly conduct charge and given a court date, an unrepentant and still-seething Baldwin ranted on Twitter.
“New York City is a mismanaged carnival of stupidity that is desperate for revenue and anxious to criminalize behavior once thought benign,” he wrote. …
Baldwin’s latest blow-up came after he was stopped at 10:15 a.m. by officers asking for identification on Fifth Ave. near 16th St. in the Flatiron District.
