Alec Baldwin is continuously being haunted by the “ Rust” fiasco. The incident took place in the middle of 2021. It has almost been a year since the actor has been investigated.
Baldwin had to go through a number of investigation procedures over time. He has been interrogated more than once. The actor had to appear in the court of law frequently.
All these have deteriorated his mental health significantly. Alec’s wife, Hilaria Baldwin came to his support. She asked the media not to spread rumors about her husband. Hilaria also informed them that the actor was suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.
The police had even ordered for the seizure of Alec’s personal cell phone. Apart from Baldwin, a number of the production members were also facing harassment. This Monday, they decided to approach the judge and asked him to bunk the case.
The lawyers of Alec Baldwin and other production crews pleaded with the judge for calling off the case. Let us learn more about the story in detail below.
