NEW YORK, May 13 (UPI) -- Alec Baldwin, who was arrested Tuesday morning for riding his bike the wrong way down a one-way street in Manhattan, has declared New York City "a mismanaged carnival of stupidity."

The former 30 Rock star, 56, was handcuffed and brought to Manhattan's 13th Precinct station house after he allegedly berated two female police officers who stopped him, then failed to present them with his identification. A warrant check was conducted and a summons issued before he was released.

"New York City is a mismanaged carnival of stupidity that is desperate for revenue and anxious to criminalize behavior once thought benign," he later fumed on Twitter.
