TMZ is reporting that bizarre actor, so-called artist, and part-time petty criminal Shia LaBeouf was arrested last night in Manhattan at his own anti-Trump “art” protest. He was hauled away after fighting with another protester of like-mind.
The arrest happened in the middle of Shia’s “He will not divide us” live stream … which has been going on since President Trump’s inauguration and will continue for four years.
A guy walked in front of the mounted camera and said something, and whatever it was, Shia became angry.
The 30-year-old actor got into a verbal dispute with the 25-year-old Bronx man at around 12:35 a.m., authorities said.
The other man refused medical attention for the scratches to his face but police responded and took LaBeouf, who was wearing an NYPD sweatshirt, into custody.
The two were both chanting “He will not divide us,” referring to President Trump, when they got into the dispute.
Shia grabbed for the guy’s scarf, and allegedly scratched him in the process. As TMZ first reported … NYPD has been posted up at the protest site since Monday — so officers quickly moved in and took him away Shia.
Shia has had at least two other highly-publicized run-ins with people at his nonsensical art exhibit.
LaBeouf has since been released.
He was charged with misdemeanor assault charges.
At the lifestream project, drone-like humans repeat the phrase, “he will not divide us” as many times as they want before a camera set up outside the Museum of Moving Images in Astoria, Queens.
Shia needs serious rehab or mental help. The family should plan an intervention before he really hurts someone badly.
