Alec Baldwin taken to hospital

NEW YORK (WKOW) -- Police say Emmy Award-winner Alec Baldwin was taken to the hospital Thursday morning.

Authorities say his daughter called 911 after he'd threatened to take pills.

A police report says Baldwin told his daughter, "I'm tired of this. I'm going to take some pills. I'm going to end this."

A spokesperson for Baldwin calls the incident a misunderstanding and no pills or alcohol were involved.

Baldwin was released from the hospital soon after.  He returned to work on "30 Rock" the same day.

Baldwin will co-host the Academy Awards this year with Steve Martin.
