The '30 Rock' star was leaving the New York City Marriage License Bureau with fiancee Hilaria Thomas when he got into an altercation with paparazzo Marcus Santos.
Marcus told the New York Daily News
newspaper: "He was looking mad. He said, 'Step back, step back.' I said, 'We're moving back.' "
According to the publication, Alec grabbed a second photographer, prompting Marcus to tell him to back off.
Marcus added: "I said, 'Don't touch him'. I knew he was going to attack me. I stepped back, and he kept coming.
"He comes after me, starts shoving and punching me - one time, right in the chin. And then he started shoving me, and pushing me. Then he goes the other way."
Fellow photographer Goran Veljic added: "He was like crazy, you know? There was an eruption of mad. ... You're going to get a marriage license, you should be happy. What happened with this guy?"
However, the 'Rock of Ages' actor had a different take on events, insisting he was "almost hit" by a waiting photographer.
He tweeted: "A 'photographer' almost hit me in the face with his camera this morning. #allpaparazzishouldbewaterboarded (sic)"
