Baldwin Stalking Case: Actress Re-Arrested

Baldwin Stalking Case: Actress Re-Arrested

Police have surprised a Canadian actress accused of stalking Alec Baldwin by locking her up again at the close of an otherwise routine court appearance.

Authorities wouldn't discuss why Genevieve Sabourin was re-arrested in Manhattan.

There had been recent reports that she had posted angry tweets about Baldwin's new wife, after a judge had ordered her to stay away from the 30 Rock star.

"Why am I being arrested?" she is reported to have said as she was led away in handcuffs.

Defence lawyer Rick Pasacreta confirmed his client was back in custody, but he said he had not been informed of any new charges.

Following Sabourin's arrest on stalking and harassment charges in April, a judge released her and issued a temporary order of protection for Baldwin.

Sabourin lives in Quebec and has acted in television and film.

She and Baldwin met a decade ago on the set of The Adventures Of Pluto Nash, a sci-fi comedy in which he had a cameo and she was a publicist.

Police originally arrested Sabourin after authorities said she had implored Baldwin to see and to marry her in emails sent only days after he became engaged to yoga instructor Hilaria Thomas.

One of the messages envisioned Baldwin as her future "husband," while another described "creating Genevieve Baldwin," a complaint said.

Authorities said she also showed up at a screening he was hosting and at his apartment building.

"I just came over to see Alec because I need to speak with him," she told police, according to court documents.

Baldwin and Thomas married in June. Baldwin was previously married to actress Kim Basinger, with whom he has a daughter, Ireland.

Another lawyer for Sabourin had previously said his client and Baldwin had a two-year relationship and that she had a "legitimate purpose" for contacting him.
