Alec Baldwin was arrested on November 2 and charged with misdemeanor assault and harassment.

Alec Baldwin has pleaded guilty to harassing a man during a dispute over a parking spot last year.

The 60-year-old actor appeared in a New York City courtroom on Wednesday.

He agreed to complete a one-day anger management class to resolve the criminal case.

The charge is a violation, the lowest level of offence.

If he completes the class, the case record will be sealed.

Baldwin was accused of trying to punch another driver during a November 2 argument over a parking spot in front of his Manhattan apartment building.

The former 30 Rock star's lawyer had said Baldwin would be vindicated by video evidence.

Baldwin only spoke a few words during the court hearing, mostly answering short questions from the judge.

He would not comment afterward.
