NEW YORK -- New York City police are investigating harassment complaints made by actor Alec Baldwin and a New York Post newspaper photographer after an altercation.
According to police, photographer G.N. Miller says the former "30 Rock" star yelled racial epithets and other insults when he was trying to take pictures of the actor outside his Manhattan apartment. Baldwin maintains he yelled at the photographer but never said anything racist. He called the allegations "outrageous."
Baldwin called police and filed a harassment complaint Monday. The photographer later filed a cross-complaint.
The police department's Hate Crimes Task force was looking into the allegations.
A Post spokeswoman had no immediate comment Tuesday.
