Alec Baldwin's disorderly conduct case for riding a bicycle the wrong way down a one-way street in Manhattan and subsequently yelling at a cop was dismissed by a judge on Thursday, provided he doesn't have any more run-ins with the law for the next six months.

The actor, who has weathered a storm of criticism after losing his temper on several occasions in recent years, appeared before the judge without a lawyer, The Wall Street Journal reported.

"Mr. Baldwin, you don't have a lawyer?" asked Judge John DeLury. "You can’t afford a lawyer? You don’t want one? I saw you in a movie — you're in 'Search for Red October,' right?"

"No, 'Hunt for Red October,'" Baldwin replied.

"That’s a good movie," DeLury said, gazing down at papers detailing the charges. "Looks like you have a short fuse."

Baldwin, 56, was charged on May 13 with disorderly conduct after he was pulled over by a cop near Union Square, the New York Daily News reported. The officer and several witnesses reported that Baldwin became "belligerent" toward the cop, and began berating her — shouting things like "How old are these officers?" and "They don’t even know who I am" when he failed to provide identification. 

"Can you stay out of trouble, Alexander?" the judge asked, using Baldwin's full given name.

"Sure, sure," he said.

Baldwin then asked about a fine, and the judge offered an alternative, and said, "I’m asking for an apology."

"I’d rather pay a fine," Baldwin retorted.

The judge then dismissed the actor, giving him a six month probationary period.

"Be a good boy from now on," DeLury said. "Have a good day."
