Alec Baldwin Thanks Wife and Lawyer as Charges in ‘Rust’ Case are Temporarily Dismissed

Alec Baldwin took to Instagram on Thursday to express his gratitude towards his wife, Hilaria Baldwin, and his attorney Luke Nikas, after prosecutors in the “Rust” case announced their plans to drop charges against him.

Baldwin shared a photo of him and his wife, saying “I owe everything I have to this woman. (and to you, Luke).” This marks the first time the actor has posted on his social media since the announcement of the dismissal of charges against him relating to the 2021 fatal shooting of Halyna Hutchins.

The charges against Baldwin are being dismissed temporarily as prosecutors continue their investigation. Hutchins, a cinematographer, was killed by a live round of ammunition fired from a prop gun held by Baldwin while rehearsing a scene on the set of “Rust” in New Mexico in 2021.

Director Joel Souza was also injured. Baldwin and “Rust” armorer Hannah Gutierrez Reed were both charged with involuntary manslaughter in January, but the firearm enhancement charge was later removed.

Baldwin’s attorneys, Nikas and Alex Spiro, have said that they are pleased with the decision to dismiss the case and encourage a proper investigation into the accident. Baldwin had previously pleaded not guilty to the charges against him.

In October, Baldwin reached a settlement in the wrongful death lawsuit filed by Hutchins’ family in February last year. Baldwin’s return to the “Rust” set this week to complete filming of the movie at the Yellowstone Film Ranch in Montana comes on the heels of the announcement that the charges against him are being dropped.
