This week's "Saturday Night Live" episode was an odd one, mostly because it didn't feature Alec Baldwin as Donald Trump in the opening sketch.


The actor was arrested on Friday, November 2, 2018, after allegedly punching a man over a parking spot and the show didn't let the opportunity side.

Kate McKinnon, impersonating Fox News host Laura Ingraham, covered the migrant caravan events but also made fun of Baldwin's arrest toward the end.

"When we come back, an update from disgraced former actor Alec Baldwin – seen here molesting a young Boy Scout."

After the announcement, the audience was shown a picture of Baldwin's Scoutmaster and Adam Sandler's Canteen Boy, both SNL characters from a classic sketch.


Although the show decided to make a joke at Baldwin's expense, he wasn't very happy about the situation and claimed that he didn't assault anyone.



The truth is that, according to the New York Police Department, the famous actor got into an argument with a 49-year-old man, whose identity is yet to be revealed, and attacked him.

It seems that one of Baldwin's friends was saving a parking spot for him, but the man parked his car anyway, which caused the actor to become enraged.

The actor was placed under arrest but was released hours later, leaving the station and passing through the reporters and camera crews outside without saying a word.


Still, he had plenty to say on social media; Baldwin took to Twitter to say that the whole situation had been 'egregiously misstated' and the 'negative charges' were 'clickbait entertainment.'


Entertainment or not, the victim ended up in the hospital with a sore jaw and Baldwin was charged with a misdemeanor assault and harassment, as confirmed by Det. Sophia Mason from the NYPD's 10th Precinct.
