ABC News White House correspondent Tara Palmeri claims that comedian Alec Baldwin once told her how he hoped she would “choke to death” while she was working as a tabloid reporter in New York City.
“Alec Baldwin also told me ‘I hope you choke to death’ when I was on assignment, staking out his house,” Palmeri wrote on Twitter, hours after Baldwin was arrested for allegedly punching a person in New York City.
The run-in reportedly took place back in 2013 after Palmeri attempted to glean information about a lawsuit Baldwin had filed against his ex-wife, alleging that Baldwin grabbed her arm and threatened her. She later presented an audio recording of the incident to the New York City Police Department (NYPD).
