The “Saturday Night Live” actor — who plays a raging President Trump on the TV show and was once tossed off a plane and previously arrested for arguing with cops in real life — says defendant Wojciech Cieszkowski lied when he claimed Baldwin punched him in the face during the Nov. 2, 2018, argument.
“When two New Yorkers get into an argument over a parking space, typically what happens is they exchange a few sharp words and then move on with their lives,” according to Baldwin’s suit, which was filed in Manhattan Supreme Court on Friday.
“But that is not what happened here. Cieszkowski has instead made up a false story about the encounter and refused to move on unless Baldwin succumbs to his extortion demands.”
The actor claims he “lightly pushed” Cieszkowski during the encounter, although the defendant turned around and lied to cops that he was badly assaulted, the papers say.
Baldwin ended up pleading guilty to harassment in the case earlier this year — and was sentenced to anger-management classes.
Cieszkowski could not immediately be reached for comment. He has already sued Baldwin over the incident.
