Shia LaBeouf in court over Broadway disruption charge
LaBeouf's lawyer and prosecutors said they were trying to resolve his case
Actor Shia LaBeouf appeared at a Manhattan court on Thursday charged with disrupting a Broadway performance.
The Nymphomaniac star was arrested in June after he disturbed a Broadway production of popular musical Cabaret.
According to Variety, police were called to the scene after the 28-year-old ignored repeat security guard requests for him to exit the venue.
New York Police Department spokesperson George Tsourovakas said: “He was being rather difficult and combative, verbally... To the point where security guards asked him to please leave the premises and he refused. Police were called and he was detained and arrested.”
Benj Pasek, a Broadway songwriter who witnessed the incident, claimed that LaBeouf was crying as he was led out of the musical in handcuffs.
LaBeouf's lawyer and prosecutors said they were trying to resolve his case. He's due back in court on 10 September.
Another well-known actor also had a Manhattan court date on Thursday.
Alec Baldwin refused to apologise over an incident, in which police stopped him for riding a bicycle the wrong way down a one-way street, that resulted in a disorderly conduct arrest in May.
The judge gave him an adjournment in contemplation of dismissal.
