If Alec Baldwin does leave New York City, as he ranted in a recently published magazine piece, at least one segment of city society won’t be upset: the police.

“I say, ‘Don’t let the door hit you on the way out of the city,’ ” one New York Police Department source who knows the Hollywood actor said to the New York Post. “I don’t like the guy. It’s a pain in the [expletive] to deal with him every time he blows his top at the press, and we’re called in to clean up the mess.”

Another who claimed to know the actor described him as “weird” with an “almost-paranoid personality,” the New York Post reported. “Good riddance. He chose a career to be a public figure, and he acts surprised whenever the media wants to take his photo or his wife’s.”

Mr. Baldwin wrote in New York Magazine of his frustration of living in the city because of all the paparazzi and prevalence of iPhone cameras.

He penned: “I just can’t live in New York anymore. Everything I hated about L.A., I’m beginning to crave. L.A. is a place where you live behind a gate, you get in a car, your interaction with the public is minimal. I used to hate that. But New York has changed.”
