Prosecutors Claim That Alec Baldwin Had “No Control of His Own Emotions’ on Rust Set

This story is constantly changing!

The prosecutors in the ‘Rust’ movie case are taking a new approach with new legal filings claiming that Alec Baldwin’s behaviour on the movie set contributed to “safety compromises” that led to the fatal shooting of the film’s cinematographer Halyna Hutchins in 2021.

Prosecutors argue Baldwin has repeatedly “changed his story” about the events of the shooting and he had “absolutely no control of his own emotions.”

During his first days on set, the filing says Baldwin demanded the crew and the armourer, Hannah Gutierrez Reed, “work faster” and his “relentless rushing of the crew on the movie set routinely compromised safety.”

According to the filing, Baldwin frequently screamed and cursed at crew members, himself or at no one in particular on set and had “absolutely no concern for how his conduct” affected those around him. “Witnesses have testified that this exact conduct contributed to safety compromises on set,” the filing alleged.

Gutierrez Reed – who was responsible for firearm safety and storage on the movie’s set – was found guilty of involuntary manslaughter in March. She faces up to 18 months in prison and a $5,000 fine.
