After an eventful night at the theater that exploded over social media on June 26, actor Shia LaBeouf has been released from police custody following his disruptive behavior at Cabaret on Broadway. LaBeouf was reportedly charged with one count of criminal trespassing, one count of harassment and two counts of disorderly conduct. According to CBS News, he was released on his own recognizance and faced a judge Friday morning. LaBeouf is due back in court on July 24.
In case you missed it, here's a recap of LaBeouf's reported bizarre behavior that led to and followed his arrest:
1. He lit up a cigarette inside Studio 54 during the first act of the performance.
2. He slapped random patrons on the ass and back of the head.
3. He fed a woman a strawberry from her own plate.
4. Audience members complained about his body odor.
5. He appeared disheveled and incoherent.
6. When confronted by police, he yelled and cursed at the officers, telling them "I'll f*ck you up," among other obscenities.
7. He told the police he was in the army (he is not).
8. While being held at the station, LaBeouf was muzzled for repeatedly spitting.
In January, LaBeouf announced his retirement from “all public life” after facing a plagiarism accusation over his short film HowardCantour.com. This culminated in a one-man-show titled #IAmSorry. The show was an apparent apology for his string of wacky behavior.
Whether or not this is all some elaborate publicity stunt as part of his #IAmSorry "performance art," LaBeouf provided a master class in what you should not do as a Broadway audience member during a night of theatergoing.
