After several weeks, attorneys for Alec Baldwin say he will hand over his phone to authorities this week as part of the investigation into the Rust shooting.
“We reached an agreement last weekend with the Santa Fe Sheriff’s Office and the Santa Fe District Attorney’s Office, and Mr. Baldwin’s phone is being turned over this week for review,” Baldwin’s civil attorney Aaron Dyer told Fox News Digital.
“Ever since this tragic incident, Mr. Baldwin has continued to cooperate with the authorities, and any suggestion to the contrary is simply untrue,” he added. “We requested that the authorities obtain a warrant so that we could protect his privacy on other matters unrelated to ‘Rust’ and have been working through that process. We are finalizing logistics with the authorities in New York who are assisting in this matter.”
Investigators had accused Baldwin of not cooperating with them. The statement from the attorney comes the same day Santa Fe County Sheriff’s Department shared a press release claiming, “To date, the cellphone has not been turned over to authorities.”
