Gregg Jarrett: Alec Baldwin may face these criminal consequences in the fatal shooting on his film set

  Gregg Jarrett: Alec Baldwin may face these criminal consequences in the fatal shooting on his film set We often think of an accidental death as something happening by chance that was unintentional. This would be a convenient way of explaining the tragic shooting death of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins on the New Mexico film set of the movie 'Rust.'This would be a convenient way of explaining the tragic shooting death of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins on the New Mexico film set of the movie "Rust." However, criminal law is rarely convenient. Nor is it simple.

Stu Brumbaugh, who worked as a key grip on the set of "The Old Way," told The Wrap that Hannah Gutierrez-Reed's behavior caused star Nicolas Cage to scream at her and storm off set.

Brumbaugh said Cage snapped when Gutierrez-Reed fired a gun near the cast and crew for the second time in three days without warning.

"Make an announcement, you just blew my f------ eardrums out!" Cage yelled before walking off the set, Brumbaugh told the publication.

Insider reached out to Brumbaugh and a representative of Cage's for comment on Wednesday, but did not immediately receive responses.

Brumbaugh told The Wrap that he witnessed other examples of Gutierrez-Reed exhibiting poor gun safety.

Brumbaugh said she walked onto set with live rounds of blanks without making a public announcement to cast and crew. She also tucked pistols under her armpits, which ended up being pointed at people when she turned her back to them, he said.

Gutierrez-Reed did not respond to Insider's request for comment on Brumbaugh's allegations.

Brumbaugh said he told the assistant director on the film that Gutierrez-Reed should be fired, and in the process learned that it was her first film.

An unnamed producer who spoke to The Wrap contested Brumbaugh's account of Gutierrez-Reed's work on "The Old Way."

"I have no such recollection of this event on our set. I asked my partners the same," the producer said. "The details on some of these accounts specifically when it pertains to 'The Old Way' have been blown out of proportion."
