The volatile “30 Rock” star popped lensman Marcus Santos once in the face outside the Worth St. office after apparently obtaining a license to wed fiancee Hilaria Thomas.
Santos was standing innocently with two other photographers when Baldwin, 54, approached with an angry glare.

Alec Baldwin shoves Daily News photographer Marcus Santos after leaving the Marriage Bureau on Tuesday morning.
“He was looking mad,” said Santos. “He said, ‘Step back, step back.’ I said, ‘We’re moving back.’”
Baldwin approached Daily News photog Marcus Santos with an angry glare.
Baldwin then grabbed a second News photographer, Jefferson Siegel, and Santos told the “Rock of Ages” star to back off.
“I said, ‘Don’t touch him,’” the 42-year-old Santos said. “I knew he was going to attack me. I stepped back, and he kept coming.
JEFFERSON SIEGEL FOR NEW YORK DAILY NEWS
Alec Baldwin shoves Daily News photographer Marcus Santos after leaving the Marriage Bureau Tuesday morning.
“He comes after me, starts shoving and punching me — one time, right in the chin. And then he started shoving me, and pushing me. Then he goes the other way.”
Santos, who joined the Daily News staff two years ago, said he filed an assault complaint with the NYPD against Baldwin — whose history of anger mismanagement includes two previous attacks on photographers.
Police were investigating, and it was unclear if Baldwin would be arrested.
Eyewitness Goran Veljic said Baldwin’s face filled with rage as he went after the photographers.
“He was like crazy, you know?” said freelancer Veljic, who takes photos outside the office every day. “There was an eruption of mad. … You’re going to get a marriage license, you should be happy. What happened with this guy?”
Baldwin, whose first marriage to Oscar-winning actress Kim Basinger ended in a contentious divorce, had seemingly found serenity with his younger yoga instructor.
But his notoriously nasty side surfaced on the otherwise happy occasion as Baldwin stormed away without saying a word. Thomas, 28, was walking behind Baldwin when the punch was thrown.
An unrepentant Baldwin presented his version of the clash via Twitter: “A ‘photographer’ almost hit me in the face with his camera this morning. #allpaparazzishouldbewaterboarded”
He also bizarrely compared the incident to the fatal Florida shooting of Trayvon Martin: “I suppose if the offending paparazzi was wearing a hoodie and I shot him, it would all blow over ..”
Baldwin spokesman Matthew Hiltzik claimed the photographer instigated the incident. Santos became upset when a passerby blocked his shot of Baldwin and Thomas, the statement said.
“The photographer was clearly frustrated, pushed past the bystanders and assaulted Alec with his camera,” the statement continued. “There were no punches thrown, and any subsequent physical contact was simply Alec protecting himself.”
Veljic said the photographers were hardly in Baldwin’s face before the enraged actor went nuts.
“They were away from him,” said Veljic. “Then he starts running at them. Pushing, very angry, his hands up.”
It wasn’t Baldwin’s first clash with a cameraman — the combative Long Islander attacked a photographer outside his Central Park West home in 2010 and another in California in 1995.
More recently, the angry actor was booted from an American Airlines flight after ignoring directions to turn off his iPad.
And he famously insulted his then-11-year-old daughter, Ireland, as “a rude, thoughtless little pig.”
