Alec Baldwin explains why he hasn’t handed over his phone yet

The Hollywood star says authorities ‘can’t just go through your phone’

Alec Baldwin has denied he’s refusing to comply with a search warrant for his phone amid a probe into the shooting of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins, arguing that the authorities have to tell him what they want from his device.

In a video posted to Instagram on Saturday, Baldwin said “any suggestion that I am not complying with requests or orders or demands or search warrants about my phone” is “bullsh**t” and “a lie.”
“This is a process where one state makes the request of another state. Someone from another state can’t come to you and say, ‘Give me your phone, give me this, give me that.’ They can’t do that,” Baldwin said on Saturday. “They’ve got to go through the state you live in, that’s a process that takes time.”
