Alec Baldwin allegedly shoved a freelance photographer against a car in the West Village after the man filmed video of the "30 Rock" star and his wife outside a cafe, according to published reports.

The photographer called 911 to report, "I was just attacked by Alec Baldwin," after the notoriously hot-tempered actor pinned him against the vehicle near The Grey Dog on University Place around noon Tuesday, reports The New York Post. 

Baldwin also called 911, according to the Daily News. Neither he nor the photographer filed an official police report, and no arrests were made, the paper said. 

The Post reports Baldwin's wife, Hilaria Thomas, tried to stop him from getting involved in an altercation with the photographer but ended up watching helplessly as it unfolded.

The couple welcomed their first child, Carmen Gabriela, into the world last week. The reports said the baby was not spotted at the scene of the dispute. 

The alleged dust-up with the photog marks Baldwin's third such confrontation in a little more than a year.

In February, he was involved in a verbal argument with a New York Post photographer in which he allegedly used racial slurs. Both he and the photographer filed harassment complaints against each other in that case.

Last June, Baldwin was involved in a fracas with reporters after he walked out of the city's marriage license bureau with his new wife. He allegedly punched a photographer.
