On Wednesday (Jan. 26), actor Shia LaBeouf was arrested by New York police following an altercation with a man during his "He Will Not Divide Us" art protest against President Donald Trump. An NYPD rep confirmed LaBeouf's arrest and release to Billboard. The actor was issued a desk appearance ticket.
The altercation took place when LeBeouf got involved in a verbal skirmish with an unknown man outside of the Museum of Moving Art in New York City. The Transformers star was said to have grabbed the man by his scarf and scratched him in the face. Video footage captures the unidentified man initially greeting LaBeouf and later telling him, "Hitler did nothing wrong." Another clip shows the actor being taken away by police in handcuffs.
