Alec Baldwin returns his phone to police in a rust investigation a month after a search warrant was issued


Alec Baldwin handed his phone over to cops investigating his movie set Rust. The transfer of his iPhone and password comes a month after police issued a search warrant, much to the frustration of law enforcement and despite Baldwin’s own statements of cooperation. Authorities in Suffolk County, New York, can now review his phone data, including text messages, calls and browser history, and report relevant information to police in New Mexico, where the shooting took place, pursuant to an agreement between Baldwin’s attorney and investigators. Communications between Baldwin and his lawyer and wife will be excluded from the police investigation, which covers messages sent from June 1 to December 5. Baldwin held the gun during the rehearsal, although he claims he never pulled the trigger. Baldwin has denied any wrongdoing and his lawyer said on Friday: ‘Alec voluntarily provided his phone to authorities this morning so they could complete their investigation. But this case is not about his phone, and there is no answer on his phone. Alec didn’t do anything wrong.
