Manhattan judge tells Alec Baldwin he has a 'short fuse,' says he'd rather pay a fine than apologize over detainment

Alec Baldwin appeared in court on Thursday in connection to his disorderly conduct detainment in which he was stopped for riding a bike the wrong way down a one-way street back in May.

At the time, he reportedly belligerent with cops, later tweeting, “New York City is a mismanaged carnival of stupidity.”

As the former 30 Rock actor stood in front of Judge John DeLury in Manhattan Criminal Court, he was told "Looks like you have a short fuse.”

The AP reports Judge DeLury asked Baldwin "Can you stay out of trouble, Alexander?" to which he replied, "Sure, sure.”

The case will be dismissed if Baldwin stays out of trouble for six months.

According to Page Six Baldwin offered to pay a fine for the disturbance rather than apologizing for the incident.

“You want to wait this out? Do you want to apologize?” asked the judge but Baldwin answered, “I’d rather pay the fine.”

The judge even complimented him on his film The Hunt for Red October while there.
