Police eye 'hate crime' in Baldwin rant

(NEW YORK POST) The NYPD’s Hate Crime Task Force yesterday launched an investigation into Alec Baldwin’s tirade at a Post photographer.

Detectives brought the lensman and a Post reporter to a downtown station house, where they were interviewed at length about their racially charged run-in with Baldwin outside the actor’s East Village apartment building Sunday.

Photographer G.N. Miller, a retired NYPD detective, told cops that Baldwin called him a “coon,” a “crackhead” and a “drug dealer.”
