Actor Alec Baldwin was once let off a speeding fine by a traffic cop because the officer thought he was his brother Billy.

The Cooler star was so upset at being mistaken for his younger sibling, he says he would have preferred to pay the fine.

Billy says: "He was pulled over one time for speeding.

"The cop handed him back his licence and said, 'I should have given you a ticket there Mr Baldwin, but seeing as you were so great in Backdraft, I'm going to let you go.'

"My brother snapped the frigging licence away from the guy and said, 'I'd rather have gotten a ticket.'

"He called me up and said, 'I'd rather have been put away than be confused with you.'" -Wenn
