Shia LeBeouf acts up during ‘Cabaret’, gets arrested, dissed by Liza Minneli rep

It is not news that occasionally celebrities, like everyone else, make fools of themselves and act badly in public but for Shia LeBeouf this seems to be a continuing downward spiral. On June 29, Web Pro News reported on yet another incident of Mr. LeBeouf making a spectacle of himself. This time he was arrested and Liza Minnelli’s rep was compelled into action over the matter.

Apparently LeBeouf was never properly educated on the correct behavior one uses while in a theater. Not the movie theater where people get up and down to refill popcorn and sodas and leave their trash on the floor when the film is over. This would be that other kind of theater where a theatrical performance is put on. The one Shia chose to attend and disrupt was showing “Cabaret.”

“Cabaret” is the story of a small club located in Berlin during World War II. The songs are about the goings on in the club, the characters and where they hail from and about the Nazis.

Police reports and eye witness accounts indicate LeBeouf was in attendance at the Studio 54 production when he began yelling and cat calling the female actresses. One person, Alan Cumming, who was on stage at the time, received a smack on his behind from LeBeouf. ABC News shared coverage of the arrest on Good Morning America.

It didn’t take very long before the theater’s security guard asked LeBeouf to leave. He refused and police were called to the scene. The actor became more defiant, resisted arrest and began spitting at the police officers. He was placed in handcuffs and a spit mask muzzle was placed on his face.

He continued screaming at the police. He said, “F*ck you! This is f*cking bullshit. Do you know my life? Do you know who the f*ck I am? Do you know who I am?”

The screaming and ranting continued even as he was hauled into the station house where he referred to one officer as a “fag”. LeBeouf was then charged with trespassing, disorderly conduct, harassment and other charges which totaled 5 misdemeanor charges.

The following day, Scott Gorenstein, a rep for Liza Minnelli who starred in the 1972 film version of “Cabaret”, sent LeBeouf a DVD of the film. “I figured he may want to find out how it ends,” quipped Gorenstein. “What can I say? I just had to.”

It is not known if Minnelli herself is aware of the LeBeouf incident or if she was involved in the sending of the DVD. LeBeouf has not issued any comment on the gesture.
