Shia LaBeouf Arrested at 'Cabaret' Performance, Allegedly Called Officer a 'Fag'
Actor Shia LaBeouf was arrested during a performance of Cabaret on Broadway last night and escorted from the theater in handcuffs.
Broadway World reports that LaBeouf was disruptive and smoking during the performance.
ABC News adds:
Inside the precinct, LaBeouf was ranting and rambling incoherently, police said, threatening the officers and using offensive language. He remained handcuffed until being fingerprinted. LaBeouf was wearing a blue T-shirt with a rip on the right shoulder. He also exhibited an unpleasant body odor, police told ABC News.
He was charged with two counts of disorderly conduct and one count of criminal trespassing. An additional count of harassment was later added, police said.
The New York Post has more, reporting that LaBeouf "was slapping people on the behind and in the back of the head" and later allegedly used an anti-gay slur against cops:
At the Midtown-North station house, he allegedly became belligerent, demanding the cuffs be removed.
“F–k you. I’ll f–k you up!” the 28-year-old LaBeouf said, according to the sources.
Cops decided to not take the cuffs off the agitated “Transformers” star, and he allegedly started spitting, prompting officers to put a face mask on him.
LaBeouf then unloaded on the arresting officer and used a homophobic slur.
“I have millions and millions of dollars and attorneys,” the unhinged actor said. “I’m going to ruin your career,” he added, then allegedly called the cop a “f-g.”
