The last we heard from Shia Labeouf, he’d pulled himself out of his self-induced exile and re-joined Twitter, where he was sharing the “poetic” musings of a madman. Well, he’s now taken his insanity one step further and gotten himself arrested at a Broadway performance of Cabaret for disorderly conduct.
On Thursday night, the 28 year-old actor was arrested at the Broadway musical “Cabaret” in New York for raucous behavior.
He was later booked and charged with two counts of disorderly conduct and one count of criminal trespassing.
Police said the “Transformers” actor was smoking inside the Studio 54 theater and acting “loud and disruptive” during the first act of the Tony-nominated musical starring Michelle Williams and Alan Cumming. Law enforcement officials handcuffed the thesp during intermission and escorted him out of the venue.
Tony-nominee Benj Pasek tweeted that he saw the actor crying outside after as he spoke to officials.
Whether the “Cabaret” incident was part of LaBeouf’s “#IAmSorry” campaign is unclear but according to CBS2 in New York, two witnesses saw LaBeouf before the show looking distraught in a ripped shirt a block away from the theater. They said LaBeouf was chasing after a man who appeared to be homeless.
“Honestly, I wasn’t thinking of drunk or drugs,” one of the witnesses said. “I was thinking he was working on a role, because it was that extreme.”
LOL, why am I not surprised? I doubt this was “performance art”; I legit think this guy has some serious mental issues and really needs some counseling/possibly medication (if he’s not already on some). Word on the street is that he actually went up on stage and slapped Alan Cumming‘s ass, as well. HA!
