Alec Baldwin’s Disturbing Behavior on 'Rust' Set Exposed in Court Filing

Alec Baldwin’s Disturbing Behavior on 'Rust' Set Exposed in Court Filing

In the tragedy-stricken Western movie "Rust," Alec Baldwin exhibited unmanageable emotional outbursts prior to the accident that resulted in shooting two individuals, causing one fatality, as per the allegations made by prosecutors in the New Mexico desert event of 2021.

CBS News has pointed out that Baldwin's psychological state throughout the movie's production is expected to be a focal point in his upcoming manslaughter trial.

The incident occurred in October 2021 on the "Rust" set, where Baldwin was manipulating a firearm that unexpectedly went off.

Hannah Gutierrez-Reed, the film's armorer, was found guilty of involuntary manslaughter last month, with a potential sentence of up to 18 months in prison awaiting her at a sentencing hearing set for April 15.

She was responsible for loading the .45 caliber pistol that resulted in the death of 42-year-old cinematographer Halyna Hutchins.

Joel Souza, the director of "Rust," was also injured during the incident but survived.

Baldwin has stated that his responsibilities as an actor did not extend to the firearm's status, whether it was loaded with real bullets, and claimed that the gun discharged without him pulling the trigger.

However, ABC News reported that FBI firearm specialists have contested Baldwin's account, saying the evidence does not support his claim.

The final judgment on this case will be made by a jury later in the year, but the chief prosecutor has recently indicated her strategy against the 66-year-old actor.

CBS News revealed that prosecutor Kari Morrissey submitted a court document that includes testimonies from set witnesses describing Baldwin as emotionally volatile.

Morrissey's document notes, "Mr. Baldwin was often observed yelling and swearing either at himself, crew members, or into the void without any clear reason."

She added, "Observing Mr. Baldwin's behavior on the 'Rust' set is to see a person utterly overwhelmed by his emotions, showing complete disregard for the impact of his actions on those around him. It's this behavior that witnesses claim led to the compromised safety on set."

As of Tuesday morning, Baldwin's attorneys had not responded to Morrissey's accusations.

Since the tragic death of Hutchins, Baldwin has asserted his innocence. Initially charged with the shooting, these charges were eventually dismissed.

This January, Baldwin faced new charges of involuntary manslaughter and is set to stand trial in Santa Fe this July.
