Shia LaBeouf was escorted from the Broadway show “Cabaret” and arrested, after smoking, acting crazy, and slapping people’s butts during the show.
The “Transformers” star told police officers, “I’ll f**k you up” and was forced to wear a mask because he was spitting. What the hell?
The troubled actor was led away from the Studio 54 theater on West 54th Street at around 9:30 p.m. after causing trouble during the first act of “Cabaret”.
Shia, 28, was being disruptive throughout the first act of the show and was kicked out during the intermission.
One eyewitness said LaBeouf was yelling and being loud, while another claims he was even smoking inside the theater.
The “Nymphomaniac” was also slapping random people on the back of the head and on their butts.
The actor was taken into custody, reportedly telling one officer while he was being fingerprinted, “I have millions and millions of dollars and attorneys and I’m going to ruin your career.”
He also called that same officer a “fag”.
LaBeouf has been charged with criminal trespass, harassment and disorderly conduct.
An NYPD spokesman confirmed Shia’s arrest, stating, “He was arrested at a Broadway show and escorted out of the theater. He was causing a disturbance inside the theater. He was escorted out of the theater where officers met him and he was taken into custody.”
“Cabaret” cast member Danny Burstein, who plays Herr Schultz in the musical, wrote on Facebook, “Ladies and gentlemen, this is your places call for Act II. Also, to let you know, Shia LaBeouf has just been escorted from the building in handcuffs. Yep, that just happened.”
Tony nominated composer Benj Pasek tweeted, “Just saw Shia LaBeouf in handcuffs in tears surrounded by 6 police offers outside of Cabaret the musical.”
Just last year, Shia LaBeouf quit the production of Broadway’s ORPHANS, later sharing emails between himself and actors Tom Sturridge and Alec Baldwin.
Is this guy on drugs? drunk? Or just plain nuts?
