    New York’s district attorney must be a 30 Rock fan. The Manhattan D.A.’s office announced on Wednesday that it will not prosecute Alec Baldwin over his scuffle with a photographer earlier this year. The incident took place on June 19, when Daily News photographer Marcus Santos caught Baldwin leaving the City Clerk’s office after getting a marriage license. At the time Santos claimed that the actor punched him on the chin. But prosecutors decided to drop the matter, and a source said “no charges will be brought. The matter has been dropped entirely. His conduct did not rise to the level of a crime.”
