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."

Getting paid to exercise your imagination will lift your spirits. By the time you finish this assignment, you may be in better condition to pursue your primary goal. A brilliant idea for operating on a shoestring budget will come. At that point, nothing will stand between you and success. Stay calm and take things one step at a time.More
