“Dicha información, si existiera, puede ser material y relevante para esta investigación. Affiant también se enteró de que se enviaron y recibieron varios correos electrónicos y mensajes de texto con respecto a la producción de la película 'Rust’ en el transcurso de las entrevistas.”

Aaron Dyer, señor. Baldwin’s civil attorney at Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman LLP, told Fox News digital: “We are confident that the evidence will show that Mr. Baldwin is not responsible civilly or criminally for what occurred on October 21, and he continues to cooperate with authorities. We proactively requested that the authorities obtain a warrant so that we could take steps to protect Mr. Baldwin’s family and personal information that is clearly unrelated to the investigation. A phone contains a person’s entire life, and personal information needs to be protected. While they evaluate the phone information, we hope that the authorities continue to focus on how the live rounds got on the set in the first place.
