Alec Baldwin surrenders his phone to authorities for ‘Rust’ shooting investigation

Just The News:

Actor Alec Baldwin has surrendered his cellphone to New Mexico authorities a month after the search warrant for the device was issued.

On Friday, the Santa Fe District Attorney’s Office told ABC News that it had received Baldwin’s phone, which was a day after the Santa Fe County Sheriff’s Office issued a statement saying that the device still hadn’t been turned over.

The search warrant for the phone had been approved on Dec. 16. Baldwin’s lawyer acknowledged the warrant had been received and the district attorney’s office was negotiating with him to retrieve the device, according to the sheriff’s office.

Authorities want to examine text messages on the phone for their investigation into the fatal on-set shooting of “Rust” in Sante Fe last year, which killed Halyna Hutchins, the film’s cinematographer, and wounded the director, Joel Souza. read more

20 Comments on Alec Baldwin surrenders his phone to authorities for ‘Rust’ shooting investigation

  1. My prediction;

    Baldwin will be charged with involuntary manslaughter and sentenced to 100 hours of community service which involves screaming at children and slapping housewives.

  2. I doubt they will charge him with anything anytime soon. Or if they do it will take 20 years to get into the courts. By then the lawyers will have made millions.

  3. You all saw in the link how everybody was suing everybody. Total clusterfuck. Oh, he sold me live ammunition! Oh, he gave me a loaded gun! I didn’t pull the trigger! Why are these real guns?

    Me, as a regular human being… I suppose I’m a regular human being… the onus is on ME to check my firearm.

  4. My Father has never handed me a firearm without saying… and he has never handed me a firearm without the breech open… “CHECK IT.” He’s doing his due diligence.

    I never handed him a firearm without the same consideration.

  5. 1. All guns are always loaded
    2. Never let the muzzle cover anything you are not prepared to destroy
    3. Keep your finger off the trigger until your sights are on the target
    4. Be sure of your target

    Baldwin broke all four.
    Baldwin killed a person.
    Baldwin injured a person.
    Baldwin lies about what he did.
    Baldwin will get off.

  6. If it were my phone, a squad of guys would have come over that day and stuck guns in my face until I gave it up, and ransacked my house and car immediately if I didn’t, and probably put my wife and elderly mother-in-law in the freezing yard in handcuffs while they did it.

    Prosecutors don’t “negotiate” with peasants.

    Just saying.

  7. Marinating your cellphone over night in a plastic bucket of ferric chloride or ammonium sulfate will erase most of it except the plastic parts.

  8. Celebrity 100 hours of community service = 2 hours of meaningless and unseen activities that are heavily reported on and then never heard about again.

  9. Ten bucks he goes into rehab, comes out a few weeks later, they throw him a ticker tape parade, and all is forgiven.

  10. No one is discussing why they want to see the cell phone. Could it be that the rumors about the person he shot getting ready to do a documentary about Hollywood pedophiles is more than a rumor?

  11. Nco77
    Exactly. There’s more than we are being told. I’m suspicious as well why the “need” to see his phone.
