Typical straight man and noted plagiarist Shia LaBeouf was escorted by police out of a Broadway theater last night for disrupting a performance of Cabaret by smoking in the theater, shouting “loudly at the actors onstage,” and “slapping” his fellow theatergoers. Upon his removal, he allegedly called one of New York’s finest a “fag.”
TMZ has been following the saga closely, documenting the 28-year-old’s afternoon day-drinking earlier yesterday. They claim he displayed “no weird behavior” on the streets of NYC before deciding to be an asshole at the Studio 54 theater, but was photographed “chasing” a homeless man down Eighth Avenue.
Multiple witnesses tell TMZ … Shia showed up outside another bar, Three Monkeys, at around 5:00 PM. They say Shia seemed really angry and drunk and began yelling at a random woman on the street … who had no idea why Shia was so worked up.
After he was done yelling and pointing at the woman, he went back to chain smoking cigarettes and taking photos with fans.
Page Six reports that police were called to the theater to remove him somewhere between his lighting a cigarette and loud verbal antics. When the police approached him, he was allegedly “incoherent,” “very agitated,” and fell “flat on his face” in an attempt to evade the officers.
“Fuck you! I’ll fuck you up,” he allegedly yelled, adding that he has “millions and millions of dollars and attorneys,” and that he would ruin the careers of the “fags” arresting him. His “body odor” smelled very bad, and he was placed in a muzzle when he started spitting in protest.
He was released on $2,500 bail this morning and will presumably continue being a douchebag.
