Alec Baldwin shortly hospitalized

The star was taken by paramedics to a New York hospital where he spent about an hour before being released by a doctor, police said.

The actor follows to co-host the 82nd annual Academy Awards show with Steve Martin on March 7.

According to a New York City police official it seems that just after midnight, Baldwin’s 14-year-old daughter, Ireland, called 911 reporting a dispute.

“She reported he made statements that made her worried that he might harm himself or take pills or something like that,” the police official said.

Matthew Hiltzik, a spokesman for Baldwin, said in a statement the actor was “fine.”

“This was a misunderstanding on one person’s part. Alec was quickly released from the hospital, he’s completely fine and is at work today,” Hiltzik said in a statement.

This isn’t the first incident of this kind because back in 2007, the actor apologized to Ireland on national television after he called her a “thoughtless little pig,” in a ranting voice-mail message that was made public on the Internet.

This followed a bitter, six-year custody dispute over Ireland with his ex-wife, actress Kim Basinger.
