Shia LaBeouf Pleads Guilty to Disorderly Conduct
He will continue treatment for alcoholism
Shia LaBeouf has pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct, more than two months after he was charged for causing a disturbance at a Broadway performance of Cabaret.
Under the deal, LaBeouf is required to complete three additional months of treatment for alcoholism, CBSNY reports. He has been seeking treatment since his arrest on June 26. The judge also said if LaBeouf has no further legal troubles for six months, the case will be dismissed. However, the actor could face 15 days in jail if he runs into trouble in that time.
Police arrested LaBeouf at the Studio 54 theater, saying he was acting disorderly and yelling during the Cabaret performance. He allegedly shouted at the actors onstage, and then yelled at the officer who arrested him, saying "F— you. This is f—ing bullshit. Do you know my life? Do you know who the f— I am? Do you know who I am?"
After checking into rehab, LaBeouf's rep said in a statement to The Hollywood Reporter that the actor "understands that these recent actions are a symptom of a larger health problem" and that he was taking the "the first of many necessary steps towards recovery."
The arrest capped a series of bizarre incidents for LaBeuof, including a skywriting apology in the wake of a plagiarism controversy, declaring his retirement from public life and showing up to a red carpet wearing a paper bag on his head.
