Official: Alec Baldwin examined at NYC hospital

A law enforcement official says "30 Rock" star Alec Baldwin was examined at a hospital after his daughter called 911 from their Manhattan apartment. The official spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the person wasn't authorized to speak publicly. The official said Baldwin and his young daughter had argued and she told 911 he had threatened to take pills.

Baldwin's publicist issued a statement calling it "a misunderstanding on one person's part." The statement said Baldwin was "quickly released," is "completely fine and will be at work" on Thursday.

In 2008, Baldwin blamed a bitter custody battle with ex-wife Kim Basinger in part for the stress he was feeling when he berated their daughter, Ireland, in a phone message.
