If you didn’t check your news feed at all on Thursday (June 25), there’s a good chance you haven’t yet heard about Shia LaBeouf‘s arrest at the Broadway show Cabaret… so let us fill you in.
The 28-year-old actor was arrested and escorted out of the theater Studio 54 during the musical’s intermission after he become disorderly during the first act of the show. There was a picture posted on Instagram of him getting led out of the theater. See it here:
News later surfaced that Shia had been smoking cigarettes during the performance and became disorderly among the other patrons. He allegedly was talking loudly throughout the show and even hitting other audience members on the behind. Other audience reports said that he wouldn’t sit down during the performance.
After being escorted out of the theater, Shia was taken to the Midtown North precinct to be questioned by cops. When the NYPD was about to take the handcuffs off the actor, he reportedly told them, “F–k you. I’ll f–k you up.” The cops then decided to not take the handcuffs off so Shia started spitting at them, which led the police to place him in a face mask.
Shia was officially charged with two counts of disorderly conduct and one count of criminal trespassing. It seems he is still being held under arrest.
Just hours before his arrest, Shia was seen hanging out with fans around the Big Apple! He was wearing the same blue t-shirt that he was seen getting arrested in. It seems that he was in good spirits and joked around with the fans. Check out the photos and video:
