Shia LaBeouf is arrested

Chicago Tribune

CHICAGO -- Actor Shia LaBeouf was arrested in downtown Chicago early Sunday after allegedly refusing to leave a Walgreens.

LaBeouf, 21, who came to fame on the Disney Channel’s “Even Stevens” and recently starred in box-office hits “Disturbia” and “Transformers,” was arrested about 2:25 a.m. at the store at 757 N. Michigan Ave., Chicago police spokesman Marcel Bright said.

A security guard summoned police after LaBeouf -- who stars in the upcoming Indiana Jones sequel -- refused several commands to leave the store, Bright said.


The guard signed a complaint against the actor, who was cited on a misdemeanor count of trespassing.

LaBeouf was taken to the Near North police district and posted bail about 7 a.m., Bright said.

His court date is Nov. 28.
