    Alec Baldwin Appears in Court for Bike-Riding Case, Angrily Tweets That NYC Is a "Carnival of Stupidity"

    Shia LaBeouf wasn't the only celeb in a New York court today.

    Alec Baldwin appeared before a Manhattan judge this morning regarding the May 2014 incident in which Baldwin was stopped for riding his bike the wrong way down a street before being taken into police custody for disorderly conduct.

    During his NYC court appearance, the 56-year-old actor told the judge he'd rather pay a fine than apologize for getting a little "belligerent" during the unfortunate bike-riding run-in with cops.

    Judge John Delury told Baldwin during the meeting, "Looks like you have a short fuse," before asking the star, "Can you stay out of trouble, Alexander?"

    Baldwin replied, "Sure, sure." The judge then gave him an adjournment in contemplation of dismissal.

    After court, Baldwin took to Twitter to share a not-so-nice response about his meeting with the judge. "NY City is a mismanaged carnival of stupidity that is desperate for revenue and anxious to criminalize behavior once thought benign," the fiery actor wrote.

    Back on May 13, Baldwin was taken into police custody and issued two summonses: one for riding his bike the wrong way and another for disorderly conduct.
