Alec Baldwin’s gruff attitude during his first interaction with police after he shot and killed cinematographer Halyna Hutchins on the set of “Rust” can be seen in body cam footage released by cops.
The video, released by the Santa Fe Sheriff’s Office Monday afternoon along with a slew of other investigative files, shows cops responding to the shooting and their initial interview with the actor.
“My understanding is, you were in the room when the lady,” a responding deputy with the sheriff’s office says to Baldwin in the clip before trailing off.
“I was the one holding the gun, yea,” Baldwin replies in a gruff tone. “What do you need?”
The deputy told Baldwin, 64, to sit tight and not speak to anyone else as they worked to secure the scene and take statements from the witnesses.
A few minutes later, the actor is shown sitting with a few crew members and asking one of them for a cigarette.
“What do you got?” Baldwin asks a crew member, who replies that he has “Marlboro Medium.”
“I’ll take it,” Baldwin says.
“My hands are shaking… I’ll take anything.”
The video was shot on Oct. 21 moments after the fatal on-set mishap that left Hutchins, a married mom of one, dead and the film’s director Joel Souza injured.
The investigation into the shooting remains ongoing, and charges against crew members – including Baldwin – are yet to be ruled out, the sheriff’s office said.
