Things got physical between Alec Baldwin and a NY Daily News photographer today ... as Alec was leaving a NY courthouse with his fiancee Hilaria Thomas.

According to the NY Daily News, Baldwin had just obtained a marriage license ... when he got into it with one of their staff photographers, Marcus Santos.

Santos told the paper Baldwin was screaming for him and another Daily News photog to back up ... and they obliged. But Baldwin kept coming -- "He comes after me, starts shoving and punching me -- one time, right in the chin."

But sources connected with Alec tell TMZ ... the photographer almost HIT HIM with the camera and while Alec pushed him away ... he did not punch him.

Moments after the altercation, Alec tweeted, "A 'photographer' almost hit me in the face with his camera this morning #allpaparazzishouldbewaterboarded."

During the altercation, the 2nd NY Daily News photog snapped a shot of Alec with his arms extended and Santos falling back.

See what you have to look forward to in this marriage, Hilaria ? Only one day, it will be YOU and not a photographer that he attacks. He has a LONG history of this kind of behavior.

i don't feel bad for photogs they have no respect. do to others what you would have them do to you. i'm sure they wouldn't want a camera constantly shoved in their face either.

celebrities crave and want attention,status and recognition...and when they get it, they go bat crap crazy...if you don't want the celebrity life style...then get out of it...or you could put Chris Brown, Drake and Alec in the same room and let them go at it...

Baldwin is a nutcase. He's losing control, should be arrested for this and ordered into counseling until his mental illness is cured.

As usual you take the side of the photographer and try to make out that Alec Baldwin just suddenly decided to attack him out of the blue. It's MUCH more likely that the photographer started saying the kind of disgusting filth that these animals usually come out with to get a reaction that they can either take a photo of or can get "famous" from when they get attacked for "all I did was ask if I could have a picture". BS
