Report: Alec Baldwin Berates Man for Kicking Dog on the Bowery
Good Samaritans tackled and apprehended a man last Thursday who kicked a stranger’s dog in the head.
Josh Kuipers was walking Meeka (a Pomeranian) down the Bowery, near Stanton Street, when a man identified as Jerrod Ford allegedly kicked the seven-pound dog “like a football,” according to The Daily Mail. A crowd subsequently gathered, and gave chase. Ford was tackled outside of 229 Chrystie Street (near Whole Foods), and detained him until the police arrived. But no arrest was made.
The best part about the story, though, is that man-about-town Alec Baldwin, who happened to be driving by at that moment, reportedly stopped the car to berate the assailant.
“He was very concerned with what was going on,” Kuipers told the publication. “He visibly gets angry and upset and he tells him you messed up man, you are going to jail.”
