I think it’s safe to say that Shia LaBeouf has gone full Amanda Bynes. The actor was allegedly escorted from the Broadway musical production “Cabaret” in handcuffs last night, and arrested for disorderly conduct. According to various sources, LaBeouf was supposedly smoking inside the theater and hitting audience members in the back of the head. When police were called, according to Page Six, Shia tried to walk away but fell down — that’s when they put him in handcuffs and removed him from the theater for questioning. At the police precinct in Midtown Manhattan, LaBeouf allegedly kept spitting at officers and at one point yelled, “Fuck you, I’ll fuck you!” so they put dudebro in a FACE MASK (like, Hannibal Lecter style?!). Then while being fingerprinted, LaBeouf reportedly told one cop, “I have millions and millions of dollars and attorneys and I’m going to ruin your career.” He then supposedly called him a fag.
Meanwhile, CBS New York quotes two sources who saw the actor just before the show, who said he was acting strangely:
Two theatergoers told CBS 2′s Grymes they saw LaBeouf in a ripped shirt a block away from the theater while they were walking to the show. They said LaBeouf was chasing after a man who appeared to be homeless.
The witnesses said they also saw LaBeouf stumbling inside the theater in the bar, and feeding a woman a strawberry from her own plate.
“Honestly, I wasn’t thinking of drunk or drugs. I was thinking he was working on a role, because it was that extreme,” said witness Tina Marie Miller. “If we didn’t know who he was, we’d assume he was a bum, literally, from how he looked and how he was acting.”
