Shia LaBeouf Got Dragged Out Of ‘Cabaret’ In Handcuffs
There's really nothing more gangsta than being escorted out of a Broadway musical, but Shia LaBeouf is hardcore like that and doesn't give a fuck that the story of his arrest was broken by BroadwayWorld.com
This just in… First reported via both audience, and cast member reports on social media and then confirmed by BroadwayWorld.com, actor Shia LaBeouf was escorted out of Roundabout's production of Cabaret at Studio 54 during the show's intermission in handcuffs. BroadwayWorld.com confirmed shortly thereafter that the actor was reportedly disruptive during the first act of the Tony-nominated revival, and then escorted out by police during intermission. Those on the street tell us that LaBeouf was in tears when taken away by police, and that audience members on the scene described the actor as having been extremely disruptive throughout the entire first act of the show. Further confirmed by Ryan Parker of the LA Times, "Shia LaBeouf is in NYPD custody after being escorted out of CABARET the musical. He is being questioned, police tell me." Updated 11:00 PM: ABC News has reported that "LaBeouf, 28, was smoking inside the theater and engaging in other disruptive behavior, police said. When he was asked to leave, he refused and then threatened the officers and people on the sidewalk outside. He was charged with two counts of disorderly conduct and one count of criminal trespassing." According to cast member Danny Burstein on Facebook, "Ladies and gentlemen, this is your places call for Act II. Also, to let you know, Shia LaBeouf has just been escorted from the building in handcuffs." Yep, that just happened. On Twitter, Tony nominee Benj Pasek noted "Just saw Shia LaBeouf in handcuffs surrounded by 6 police offers outside of Cabaret the musical."
Say what you want about Lindsay Lohan or Justin Bieber or whoever, but when they get arrested, it's usually for kinda cool shit. Shia Labeouf was arrested because he got turned up during a Broadway show about Nazis. Gary Oldman and Mel Gibson slipped out the back without incident.
