Alec Baldwin spoke in public for the first time amid a police investigation for alleged vandalism to a set of his upcoming “Restoration Blues” movie in Pittsburgh, Pa.
Baldwin was spotted at a New York Yankees game Thursday, sitting in the front row of the sports bar facing the player’s bullpen.
The actor’s publicist did not return requests for comment, however. Pittsburgh police confirmed on Friday that they were conducting an investigation into the alleged vandalism, including the destruction of at least eight expensive wooden doors that reportedly dated back to 1906.
According to TMZ, which obtained a copy of the police report, two of the doors were damaged so badly they had to be replaced. A third door had to be removed as it weighed over 10,000 pounds.
Police previously released surveillance footage of the alleged vandalism, showing Baldwin’s wife, Hilaria, picking up a glass and throwing it at a side door, which was broken by the glass and then filled with broken glass.
“Rust” was being filmed at the Braddock neighborhood in Pittsburgh’s Westmoreland County and was scheduled to be finished by Dec. 1. According to TMZ, Baldwin refused to sign any reoccurring cast agreements earlier this week after officials told him he had to leave the set by 2 p.m. every day.
Baldwin told TMZ that he did not actually throw the glass but it landed on the exterior doors. He also said he did not return to the set until police arrived after the filming was completed. The statute of limitations for criminal charges does not expire for two years.
