The NYPD is fine with Alec Baldwin moving to L.A.

The actor blasted several peers and bemoaned the state of the media before threatening to move out of New York

On Sunday, when Alec Baldwin unleashed a tirade in New York magazine against basically every person or institution he’s ever encountered, he announced that he’s quitting public life (except that he didn’t) and might leave New York City. The NYPD, for one, has no problem with this.

One cop who patrols Baldwin’s neighborhood told the New York Post, “I don’t like the guy. It’s a pain in the ass to deal with him every time he blows his top at the press and we’re called in to clean up the mess.”

Another police source familiar with the actor’s cases said Baldwin “has a weird, almost-paranoid personality.”

“Good riddance!” the source said.

“He chose a career to be a public figure and he acts surprised whenever the media wants to take his photo or his wife’s.”

“I don’t get it,” the source added.

“Nothing will change for him if he moves to L.A. The press will hound him out there, too.”

Somewhat ironically, Baldwin didn’t seem to harbor any resentment against cops (well, traffic cops, at least), who have stepped in many a time during the actor’s public scuffles. “I don’t have these issues with waiters, traffic cops, store clerks. I know there’s an impression that I’m someone who seeks to have violent confrontations with people. I don’t,” wrote Baldwin.
