Stephen Baldwin arrested in New York City

2014-05-03 16:00

New York - Stephen Baldwin was arrested in New York City on Friday.

The Usual Suspects star, the youngest of the Baldwin brothers, was stopped by a police officer just before 07:00 in Sugar Hill, a district in Manhattan's Harlem neighbourhood, when he noticed an expired temporary registration sticker from Texas on the windshield of the actor's gold 2013 Ford Explorer.

He was taken into custody after the policeman discovered he was also driving with a suspended licence.

A source told the New York Daily News that the 47-year-old actor was taken to the 33rd Precinct station house and released with a desk appearance ticket on the licence charge.

Stephen previously pleaded guilty to driving without a licence in 2012 after he was spotted making an illegal U-turn in the city.

He was not prosecuted but was forced to pay a $155 fine, and said at the time: "I have nothing but respect for the men and women in uniform."

Last year, he also pleaded guilty to failing to pay three years' of state income tax and was ordered to pay $400 000 in back taxes, interest and fees.

Speaking outside a court in March 2013, he said: "Unfortunately, I got some really bad suggestions and advice ... from lawyers and accountants. I'm just grateful for the opportunity to rectify this situation."
