Alec Baldwin allegedly 'yelled' at a female server at Thursday night's PEN America Literary Gala in NYC - leaving her 'shocked and upset', reports Page Six.

The actor, 65, who made his return to the red carpet after all charges were dropped against for accidentally shooting and killing cinematographer Halyna Hutchins on the set of Rust - is said to have become frustrated when the server began delivering meals to a table while he was on his feet chatting to a fellow attendee.

A source told the publication the incident unfolded when Baldwin stood to chat with someone a 'couple of minutes before the line of servers come all at once to deliver the meals.

The server, said to be in her late 20s or early 30s, was allegedly stuck behind the actor as he was chatting, with the source saying: 'Then, when she could pass, she started putting plates on the table. I guess he didn’t like that she did that with him standing there.'

The actor is then said to have started 'scolding her' with the 'visibly upset' server overheard telling someone: 'I don't know why he yelled at me.'
