After deadly shots: Alec Baldwin hands over his smartphone to the authorities

Alec Baldwin cooperates with authorities after the fatal shooting on the set of Rust. The police are now evaluating cell phone data from the 63-year-old.

Update from Saturday, January 15th, 2022, 9:00 a.m.: In the investigation into the fatal accident on the set of the western film “Rust”, actor and producer Alec Baldwin handed over his mobile phone. This was announced by the Santa Fe Sheriff’s Office, which is investigating the case of the slain camerawoman Halyna Hutchins. Almost a month ago, Baldwin was asked to pass on the smartphone as evidence.

Since Baldwin was involved in the film not only as an actor but also as a director, investigators were interested in text messages and emails Baldwin sent and received during the preparation and shooting of Rust. According to investigators, he had discussed via email with the film’s armorer about the type of weapon to be used in filming the scene.

Baldwin and prosecutors have reached an agreement whereby investigators will not have access to the actor’s communications with his wife and his attorneys. Last week, the movie star released a video in which he dismissed allegations that he was not cooperating with investigators as a “lie”.

Fatal tragedy at Rust film shoot – more lawsuits

First report from Thursday, January 13th, 2022: Santa Fe – Almost three months after the fatal incident on the set of the Hollywood film “Rust”, the weapons master sued a prop master. The civil lawsuit was filed on Wednesday (January 12, 2022), the competent court in the US state of New Mexico announced. The complaint is available to the German Press Agency. Actor Alec Baldwin had been rehearsing for a scene with a gun that investigations found was loaded with live ammunition rather than blanks.

That’s exactly what the lawsuit is about: The armorer accuses a man who supplied props and also the ammunition for “Rust” with also providing live ammunition in a box designated for dummy cartridges. The props company denied supplying live ammunition to the Los Angeles Times in November.

Alec Baldwin: Props deliverer in the focus of the fatal shot

In the incident during the shooting of the low-budget western “Rust” on a film ranch in Santa Fe (New Mexico), chief camerawoman Halyna Hutchins (42) was fatally injured on October 21 and director Joel Souza was hit in the shoulder . Alec Baldwin, who serves as a lead actor and producer on the film, fired the gun in rehearsal for one scene. Investigations revealed that the Colt had a real bullet in it. In an emotional interview shortly thereafter, Baldwin said he “didn’t pull the trigger.”

Police investigations are continuing. The lawyers of the weapon master in focus brought “sabotage” into play in November. Someone could have put a live ammunition bullet in a box of harmless dummy cartridges to sabotage the shoot, attorney Jason Bowles said in a TV interview at the time. The armorer had denied allegations of negligence on set. (ial/dpa)
