Shia LaBeouf Arrested At His Anti-Trump Protest In NYC

Transformers star Shia LaBeouf was arrested in the wee hours of Jan. 26, 2017 at an anti-Donald Trump protest in New York City.

LaBeouf, 30, installed a live-streaming camera on Inauguration Day (Jan. 20, 2017) and joined protesters in chanting, "He will not divide us." LaBeouf vowed to keep the live-stream going for the next four years. Consequently, the camera captured his arrest, as well the assault he allegedly committed that led to him getting cuffed.

According to the New York Daily News, LaBeouf got into a shouting match with another protester around 12:30 a.m. after the protester posed for a selfie with the Fury (2016) actor and then yelled, "Hitler did nothing wrong!" LaBeouf was accused of shoving the protester in the chest and grabbing for his scarf, scratching him in the process, reported TMZ. In one video featuring part of the incident, you can hear the protester yell, "He hit me!" Police swept in and arrested the actor without incident and took him into custody. The alleged victim refused medical attention and remained at the scene.

LaBeouf was released at approximately 3:45 a.m. on his own recognizance, with the New York Post reporting that he left in a cab yelling, "We will not be divided!"

The New York City Police Department has been keeping a watchful eye on the protest since it began. TMZ reported that LaBeouf came close to getting physical with another alleged troll on Jan. 22, 2017—that altercation was also captured on video.

This is not the first time LaBeouf has been accused of a violent outburst, though his behavior seemed to have calmed down since he reportedly quit drinking.

As of the time of this writing, the live-stream is still going strong.
