Shia LaBeouf charged with battery and theft after allegedly stealing man’s hat in fight

Actor has had multiple run-ins with the law throughout his career

Shia LaBeouf s Silent Interview: Provocative or Pointless?

Shia LaBeouf has been charged with misdemeanour battery and petty theft.

The 34-year-old is currently facing two charges after reportedly verbally and then physically fighting with a man named Tyler Murphy on 12 June.

According to a copy of the misdemeanour complaint, obtained by The Associated Press, the altercation allegedly resulted in the Honey Boy star stealing Murphy’s hat.

The complaint, which appears to have been filed in September, requests that a warrant be issued for LaBeouf’s arrest. 

The filing reveals that an arraignment hearing has been scheduled for 19 November.

The alleged incident took place over the summer on 12 June

LaBeouf has had multiple run-ins with the law throughout his career.

 In 2014, the actor was arrested outside New York City’s Studio 54 after he drunkenly disrupted a performance of Cabaret. He pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct and was sentenced to court-mandated rehabilitation.

In 2017, the former Disney star was again booked for public drunkenness, disorderly conduct and obstruction in Savannah, Georgia. The incident ultimately led to the actor’s now-notorious racist and misogynistic rant at a police station.

The following year, LaBeouf apologised for the incident and told Esquire: “White privilege and desperation and disaster...It came from a place of self-centred delusion...It was me trying to absolve myself of guilt for getting arrested.”
