Alec Baldwin was on the phone during firearms training for a movie where he fatally shot a cinematographer on set, prosecutors said, as they charged him with involuntary manslaughter.

Santa Fe’s District Attorney’s Office accused the actor of “many instances of extremely reckless acts”.

Halyna Hutchins died on the set of Rust in New Mexico after Baldwin allegedly fired a prop gun.

The film’s armourer has also been charged with involuntary manslaughter.

The documents released on Tuesday detailing the charges – first announced on January 19- portray a chaotic set with a reckless approach to gun safety.
