Alec Baldwin had a violent confrontation with a photographer for the New York Daily News on Tuesday.

The incident with photog Marcus Santos occurred as Baldwin and his fiancee, Hilaria Thomas, left the city’s marriage license bureau.

According to Santos, Baldwin became enraged when he saw photographers outside the building, demanding that they back up before beginning to shove and push Santos.

A second Daily News photographer captured images of the encounter.

Santos says Baldwin punched him in the chin at one point, a claim Baldwin’s camp denies.

Baldwin himself was less than apologetic on Twitter.

He wrote, “A ‘photographer’ almost hit me in the face with his camera this morning. #allpaparazzishouldbewaterboarded.”
