Actor Shia LaBeouf has made a reputation for himself as having a surprisingly outlandish personality. Now he's running into some legal problems from his antics. LaBeouf has been charged following a Broadway arrest reported The Hollywood Reporter on June 26, 2014.
A New York police spokesman has said after LaBeouf was escorted out of a performance of "Cabaret," he was charged with disorderly conduct and criminal trespass. This incident occurred at Studio 54 during "Cabaret" at around 9 p.m on Thursday night. LaBeouf was said to have been behaving disorderly. He was yelling and being loud.
At the time of this report he was being held at the Midtown North police station where he was to be taken to jail from prior to appearing in court. It was tweeted by Broadway songwriter Benj Pasek that he saw LaBeouf being held in handcuffs and in tears as he was surrounded by 6 police officers outside of "Cabaret" the musical.
Earlier in the year LaBeouf made headlines for a series of strange incidents. He made a skywriting apology, declared his retirement from public life, and showed up at a red carpet event with a paper bag on his head. LaBeouf also took part in an #IAmSorry performance art piece, in which he sat silently in a room and allowed other people to join him.
It has been confirmed that LaBeouf was escorted in handcuffs by police out of Roundabout's production of Cabaret at Studio 54 during the show's intermission reports Broadway World. He was apparently disruptive during the first act of the show. Audience members who were on the scene described LaBeouf as having been extremely disruptive during the entire first act of the show.
LaBeouf had been seen smoking inside the theater and taking part in other disruptive behavior when he was asked to leave. He refused to leave and then threatened the officers and people on the sidewalk outside. It looks as if LaBeouf now needs some help from a good lawyer.
