Shia Labeouf Loses License

Shia Labeouf Loses License

Transformers hottie Shia Labeouf has had his license suspended for a minimum of a year due to his “refusal of chemical tests” (breathalyzer test) after his accident last July.

The 22-year-old actor was arrested for suspicion of a DUI misdemeanor based on “physical signs” but the charges were eventually dropped as there was no sufficient evidence.Shia underwent surgery for his badly injured left hand and continues to wear a brace to prevent further injury.

That sucks for Shia. I guess he really was drinking that night and it could have been his fault or equally his fault as the other driver.

guess that’s why he’s on his skateboard all the time =]

Hey Shia I’ll give you a ride, anytime, any place.

how can you lose a license for something that court has dropped??? Its like going to prison for murder 1 when the judge or jury ruled that there is not enough evidence to convict that person. Weird.

Amy – He got suspended cuz he refused the test. You can’t do that without losing your license. It’s a separate thing from the accident – the other driver was responsible for that.

meeeeee – License suspension is from the DMV, not from the court. When Shia refused the test, it went onto his DMV record, and it’s an automatic suspension.

He refused the breath analyzer on the scene which is an automatic misdemeanor suspicion of DUI and loss of your license.

Then he was cleared of any wrong doing in the accident. He was making a legal left hand turn on a protected arrow when a BMW at high speed blew through solid red light to t bone his F150 hard enough to make it flip twice.

Since he was seriously injured.. the cops should not have even asked for a breath analyzer esp since he had hit his head, an airbag had deplyed, he was bleeding and obviously going to be transferred to the hospital where they would run a more accurate BAC..but they were fishing assuming he caused the accident and was drunk.

The BAC which is mandatory at the emergency room with auto accidents.. came back showing him well under the legal limit for blood alcohol levels. Therefore they did not have ANY evidence to show that he was illegally drinking and driving.. all charges regarding the DUI were dropped.

All that leaves is a failure to comply to an officer request for a breath analyzer which carries an automatic loss of license for a year.

He will more than likely though get a work provision to drive to and from work. Or on set as part of work.

cougar4shia – Thanks for your detailed explanation – it puts the whole thing into a logical order. One question – why do you think Shia refused the test? If he had only been drinking lightly (several hours before the accident), the test would have vindicated him, correct? Or did he just panic?

But don’t you have the right to refuse a breathalyzer and have a blood test instead? so confusing. Also where did they want to give him the test? at the scene? cuz his hand got smashed so he obviously was in pain maybe he just wanted to have his hand fixed and didnt feel like blowing into anything. (Im not trying to defend him, Im not like Shia lover or anything Im just trying to make sense of how this all works)

1st – everyone knows he wasn’t drunk.
2nd – rich people don’t need licenses, so who cares.

#21. i agree with ur second :) lol

Well, there’s always his skateboard, though he is a dufus to risk damaging his hand again. Ah, youth.

I think a new pair of shoes will support him, folks!!

He was legally smart to refuse the test—b/c even though you lose the license, you’re more likely to win in the criminal court for lack of evidence, as is what happened here. He could have done jail time, classes, probation, etc. on the court side; but because there was no evidence, he bypassed all that “fun”. Good for Shia, he learned a valuable lesson and no one was killed. Hope he heals up.
