The weird, twisting tale of Shia LaBeouf has taken another bizarre turn, as the actor was arrested at the Studio 54 production of Cabaret last night. According to an NBC New York report, he was smoking and yelling during the performance, and generally just being that nightmare audience member that everyone who has been to a live show has encountered at least once.
The theater issued a very terse statement, saying only that “"[LaBeouf] was disruptive during Act 1 and escorted out of Studio 54 at intermission.”
The actor was arrested and charged with a misdemeanor for criminal trespass and violation for disorderly conduct. His bail will be set by a judge this morning.
It seems like the only way LaBeouf and his reps can spin this is as some sort of elaborate piece of performance art. It would totally align with everything else he’s done, and if he really was just being rude because he can’t help himself, that’s a pretty bad look.
