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 GN 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.
Alec maintains he yelled at the photographer but never said anything racist. He called the allegations "outrageous".
Baldwin called police and filed a harassment complaint on 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.
