Shia LaBeouf was escorted from a Broadway show in tears and in handcuffs last night after disrupting a cabaret show at Studio 54 in New York. This time he didn’t say he wasn’t famous, but he DID have some rather choice words for the police.
ABC News reports, “LaBeouf, 28, was smoking inside the theater, appeared intoxicated and was engaged in other disruptive behavior, police said. When he was asked to leave, he refused. So police took him out of the theater in handcuffs and brought him to the Midtown North precinct.”
The New York Post also reported that LaBeouf told police, “‘I’ll f-–k you up,’ called an officer a ‘f-g,’ and was muzzled with a face mask for spitting.” They also say that he “was slapping people on the behind and in the back of the head” at the performance.” Followed up with, “I have millions and millions of dollars and attorneys. I’m going to ruin your career.”
Oh Shia, you scamp…
Of course this comes JUST as his latest movie Fury is starting to ramp up publicity, leading some people (me) to speculate that this is yet another in the long line of publicity/”art” stunts that he’s has been known for in the past.
LaBeouf was charged with criminal trespass, harassment and disorderly conduct. We’re still waiting for the mugshot to see if he managed to work a paper bag into this latest performance as well.
