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.

Judge refuses to dismiss $10M rape lawsuit against Russell Simmons

Judge refuses to dismiss $10M rape lawsuit against Russell Simmons The music mogul did not supply enough evidence to support his claim that the statute of limitations had run out, the judge said.

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.

Report: Doug Baldwin's career in jeopardy due to multiple injuries

Report: Doug Baldwin's career in jeopardy due to multiple injuries Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Doug Baldwin may be unable to continue his career due to the effects of multiple injuries, sources told ESPN's Adam Schefter. There is a "real chance" Baldwin has played his last NFL down, Schefter adds. The 30-year-old wideout has battled various ailments recently. He played through knee, hip, and shoulder injuries during the 2018 season, missing three games as a result. Baldwin underwent hernia surgery last month, and Seahawks general manager John Schneider recently admitted that the receiver is without a timetable for a return. Seattle traded up to the final pick of the second round to select wide receiver D.K.

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.

Seahawks officially part ways with Doug Baldwin, Kam Chancellor.
The Seattle Seahawks are parting ways with two players who played a huge role in their successes in the past decade. The contracts of both wide receiver Doug Baldwin and safety Kam Chancellor were terminated with failed physical designations on Thursday, signaling the end of their time in Seattle and potentially the NFL altogether. Two Seattle icons.
