Baldwin prefers fine to apology

Alec Baldwin said he did not want to apologise for the incident in May

Alec Baldwin is not apologising over an incident that led to a disorderly conduct arrest in May.

The actor told a Manhattan judge he would rather pay a fine than say sorry over the encounter that started when police stopped him for riding a bicycle the wrong way down a one-way street.

Judge John Delury asked the actor: "Can you stay out of trouble, Alexander?"

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

Earlier the judge told Baldwin: "Looks like you have a short fuse."

If your current home can't support the lifestyle changes in your household, it is time to move. Search for a quiet hideaway where you can all rest and relax after a hard day's work.More
