How exactly does one get arrested at a Broadway play? Shia LaBeouf can tell you!
The actor was famously taken away by cops during a showing of Cabaret, starring Michelle Williams and Alan Cummings, over the summer, and finally recounted his tale of the night during an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live.
According to the former Disney star, whiskey and the World Cup are to blame for his disruptive behavior during the show — he was asked to attended after spending several hours in a bar. While reminiscing on the night of his arrest, Shia recalls smoking a cigarette in the middle of the show, grabbing Alan Cummings’ behind, and being led to a group of police cars during intermission.
Things didn’t get much better when he arrive at the station and spit on a cop’s shoe, either! It was that incident that led him to spend 25 hours in a jail cell. Shia has since made it clear that a night behind bars set him straight, and he almost immediately sought treatment for alcohol addiction following the arrest.
Now, as he’s promoting his movie Fury, the 28-year-old seems to be back to normal and on the right track.
