Shia LaBeouf arrested during livestream protest, charged with assault
Late Wednesday, TMZ reported that actor Shia LaBeouf was arrested at the site of his ongoing “He will not divide us” protest after allegedly grabbing and scratching someone who said something at the protest site.
According to TMZ:
NYPD officers hauled Shia LaBeouf away in handcuffs from his marathon protest site in NYC … after he got into it with another protester.
The arrest happened right in the middle of Shia’s “He will not divide us” live stream … which has been going on since President Trump‘s inauguration. Cops tell us a guy walked in front of the mounted camera and said something — possibly regarding Trump — but whatever it was, Shia got pissed.
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 busted Shia. Some of his fellow protesters said, “Shia took a hit for us. There were all these Nazis here, he came out and tried to protect us.”
Video of the arrest can be seen below, and LaBeouf is seen being led away even as one protester tries to block the scene with her hand. As you can see, LaBeouf’s fellow drones continue to mindlessly chant, “he will not divide us” as though in a cult-like trance:
As we reported earlier, LeBeouf intends to run this protest every day for Trump’s entire administration.
ABC News added:
Police tell ABC News that around 12:35 a.m., LaBeouf, 30, engaged in a verbal dispute with the man, a 25-year-old resident of the Bronx.
LaBeouf proceeded to pull the scarf of the other man, scratching his face while doing so. The actor also pushed the man, police said.
The unidentified man refused medical attention.
After police arrived, LaBeouf was taken into custody. He was charged and received a a desk appearance ticket for court at a later date.
It is unclear if LaBeouf has a lawyer. ABC News has contacted the actor’s representatives for comment.
This isn’t the first time LaBeouf has physically engaged critics and Trump supporters, as we reported earlier.
