Reporter Alec Baldwin Accused of Assault Fires Back on The Kelly File

Alec Baldwin has gotten in a few fights with the paparazzi this week (especially the incident that got him suspended for two weeks from MSNBC), and he even confronted a reporter about assaulting his wife. Linda Schmidt, the reporter in question, joined Megyn Kelly on Friday night to fire back.

Schmidt explained the circumstances that led her to the confrontation with Baldwin. Baldwin marched up to her while the camera was rolling after his wife informed him that she was the reporter who “assaulted” her the previous day. Baldwin told her off and declared he’s going to press charges.

Kelly played the incident in question, and all Schmidt did was hold up a microphone to Baldwin’s wife’s mouth and ask her for comment, which she declined. CLEARLY ASSAULT. Schmidt explained to Kelly that Baldwin’s wife claimed “I nearly knocked her teeth out with my microphone.”
