Shia LaBeouf Arrested at 'Cabaret' Performance, Allegedly Called Officer a 'Fag'

Labeouf

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.”

  1. Another spoiled, entitled Hollywood kid acting out because he can't handle whatever drug he's on.

    It will be interesting to see if he's treated like a normal citizen (meaning: gets jail time) or if he's going to get a slap on the wrist because he's infamous.

  2. He's not famous anymore.

  3. The definition of sad. He's heading nowhere good.

  4. Johnny he's not a Hollywood kid - he's not even a kid - but his childhood was pretty well documented. At best he's having the usual young man crises we all go through, only with lots of money and no one to tell him no. I feel like somebody should be intervening and working with him rather than just arresting him over and over. After all, that works so well for our urban members.

  8. Tigerenan did you just use "urban" to mean black? Wow. Anyway Shia LaDouche is the actual worst. Spoiled assholes get no pity.

  9. Three options lie ahead for him:

    1: Short jail time, into rehab, tearful 60 Minutes interview, confessional People story, rehabilitation of career, people love his comeback, and he resumes his previous career track. (See also, Robert Downey, Jr.)

    2: Long jail time, troubled prison life, exhausts finances on legal bills, leaves prison, spirals down on drugs, uninsurable for film work, infrequently pops up on TMZ and Enquirer, drifts off to oblivion. (See also, Macauley Culkin.)

    3: Release on bail, overdose of drugs, dies.

  10. Maybe he'll finally get whatever mental illness he has diagnosed and treated, boy hasn't been "right" for a long time

  11. He's having "the usual young man crises we all go through?" BS, I was no saint, but I never went around getting arrested in theaters, ruining other peoples paid for enjoyment of a show that is not inexpensive, one they probably had to actually work a job to be able to see, or threatening to f-up cops' careers. Furthermore, he is an adult, he's not some drunk college kid. I hope he gets the help he needs, starting with serving a real-life sentence. Yeah, that doesn't necessarily work for actual troubled youth, but this is a grown ass man, living a privilidged life. In his case, it just might.

  13. What is a summer without a meltdown?

    Posted by: Rad | Jun 27, 2014 9:14:41 AM


  14. If he had good seats (which most likely he did) he's at a cocktail table where drinks are available. It's very casual, no excuse though. Just saying.

    Posted by: Rob | Jun 27, 2014 9:34:40 AM


  15. His career is dying. Check his IMDb, his last film was Fury (2014) shot before his crazy meltdown. After that nada, nill, nothing...

  16. Gee, and I used to think all the ignorant, redneck punks were in the south where I live.

  17. Another train wreck happening before our eyes. He's been in the spotlight quite often with his attitude and actions. He's the male Lindsey Lohan.

  18. In meth veritas.

  20. I liked Even Stevens but his friend was hotter.

  21. I had been thinking that his very bizarre behaviour in recent times was due to substance abuse. But now I'm wondering if he actually has some sort of serious undiagnosed mental illness.

    Pity---because if you remember when he was younger (one of the "Disney kids") he really seemed to have his head screwed on straight; he seemed to have it all together, not like several of his contemporaries. But now he's completely falling apart---the people in his life should at be trying to figure out what the problem is, whether mental illness is a factor...

  22. This was a smart career move for him to get some media attention.

  23. Cue Gary Oldman to whine about how everybody's being so mean to Shia. "Why can't celebrities just be allowed to disrupt performances and not wear deodorant and call cops 'f*gs'," Oldman can say. "Everybody does it, don't we?"

  24. He is about the right age for onset of schizophrenia.

    Poor kid!

  25. This is a bit bizarre even for Shia. I don't get it. Something very off about all of this. I mean... Cabaret? Really?? He couldn't stay home and watch the film instead? I just don't get it.
