NEW YORK—A New York City newspaper photographer says Alec Baldwin punched him outside a marriage license bureau.

The Daily News reports that Marcus Santos was snapping images of the “30 Rock” star and his fiancé, Hilaria Thomas, on Tuesday morning in Manhattan.

Santos tells the newspaper that Baldwin grabbed a second news photographer, then started shoving Santos and hit him in the chin. He then walked away.

Photos on the newspaper’s website appear to show Baldwin shoving the photographer.

No police report has been filed. A call to the newspaper’s public relations office wasn’t returned.

A message sent to Baldwin’s publicist wasn’t immediately returned Tuesday.

Baldwin posted on Twitter: “A ‘photographer’ almost hit me in the face with his camera this morning.” He also said paparazzi should be “waterboarded.”
