Actor Alec Baldwin pleaded guilty Wednesday to second-degree harassment and agreed to attend an anger management program following his November arrest in New York City.

Well now, a resolution appears to be on the horizon; Wednesday morning, according to The Blast, a NY court accepted Baldwin's guilty plea on a second-degree harassment charge.

Wearing a dark shirt, a dark purple scarf and glasses, Baldwin, 60, pled guilty to harassment in the 2nd degree which is a violation, not a crime.

He had also faced an attempted assault charge that was dropped.

Prosecutors offered the compromise after reviewing video of the incident, looking at medical records and talking with the victim and witnesses, assistant district attorney Ryan Lipes said.

Baldwin only spoke a few words during the court hearing, mostly answering short questions from the judge.

The Manhattan prosecutor's office declined comment.

He must return to court on 27 March for another hearing in the matter. However, the assertion that I punched anyone over a parking spot is false. "Police said at the time that Baldwin and the man started arguing and pushing each other after the man parked in a spot that the actor said a family member was holding for him", adds the article. The driver of the station wagon told police that Baldwin hit him with his hand - but wasn't sure if it was a punch or a slap.

During the arraignment, Baldwin's lawyer claimed to have "incontrovertible video evidence" that proves the actor's innocence "beyond all doubt". I don't think anybody actually ever expected Baldwin to get in serious trouble. In 2014, he was given a summons for disorderly conduct after an argument with police when he was stopped for riding his bike down a one-way street in NY.

In 2011, he was thrown off an American Airlines flight after refusing to stop playing a game on his phone before takeoff.
