Shia LaBeouf arrested for DUI
Shia LaBeouf, the Transformers’ star has been arrested for driving under influence after he rolled his truck, seriously injuring his hand. The actor was taken to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center for treatment of injuries to his left hand, as well as a knee injury and a minor head injury.
LaBeouf was injured when he tried to make a left turn at a West Hollywood intersection around 3 a.m. on Sunday and his pickup truck collided with another vehicle. The unidentified female passenger in LaBeouf’s truck and the driver of the other vehicle were not seriously injured in the accident. Police said LaBeouf was clearly intoxicated at the scene.
Is not the first time LaBeouf had problems with the law: last fall he was arrested at a Chicago Walgreens drugstore for criminal trespassing after refusing the leave the premises. He later joked about the incident with David Letterman, saying, "Drinking and driving is one thing, but drinking and shopping ... it’s just as bad."
In February he received a ticket for illegal smoking, and a bench warrant was briefly issued for his arrest after he and his lawyer failed to show up for a court appearance regarding the ticket.
