Alec Baldwin has filed a motion to dismiss a lawsuit brought by the man he had a dispute with over a parking spot, claiming he didn't hit the alleged victim and has video to prove it.

In a motion filed Tuesday and obtained by CNN, attorneys for Baldwin deny the claims of serious injury by the alleged victim, Wojciech Cieszkowski, and state "the encounter was caught on video."

"The video shows that Baldwin never raises his arm above his shoulder; he doesn't swivel his shoulders to throw a punch; he doesn't cock his arm back," the motion states.

Baldwin "lightly" tapped Cieszkowski on the chest, for which he was prescribed "nothing more than one dose of Tylenol," the motion states.

Baldwin's attorneys argue Cieszkowski is "trying to turn a minor altercation over a parking spot into a multi-billion dollar lottery ticket."

In his complaint filed in March, Cieszkowski said he suffered physical pain and psychological trauma as a result of the dispute. He claims Baldwin "shoved him hard in the chest with both hands" and later "struck" his left jaw.

Cieszkowski, who describes himself as a "hardworking immigrant who runs a small business, lives a quiet life with his family, and enjoys running marathons," also argues that Baldwin defamed him during an appearance on "The Ellen Show" in February 2019.

Baldwin disputes the claims of "slander per se," stating in Tuesday's motion that his comments on "Ellen" were opinion protected under New York law.

Cieszkowski is seeking compensatory and punitive damages.

Baldwin pleaded guilty in January to a violation of harassment in connection with the dispute. He received a conditional discharge and was required to participate in a short-term anger management program. Under New York law, a violation is not classified as a crime.

CNN has reached out to attorneys for Baldwin and Cieszkowski for additional comment.

Alec Baldwin Leaving ‘SNL’? Not So Fast….
So maybe Alec Baldwin isn’t slamming the fake Oval Office door entirely on his Saturday Night Live Trump impression. After telling USA Today last week that he was “so done” playing the president in SNL‘s cold opens, the actor is now tweeting, “Who knows what the future holds?” And that Sarah Huckabee Sanders is “a mouthpiece for fascism.” Doesn’t sound like he’s quite ready to withdraw into a quieter life just yet.
