The drama took place offstage Thursday night when actor Shia LaBeouf was arrested and charged with harassment, disorderly conduct, and criminal trespass following an incident at New York's Studio 54 theater.
LaBeouf allegedly went around the theater during a performance of Cabaret and hit people in the back of the head while smoking, Page Six reports. Once police officers came up to him, he became "very agitated," and tried to walk away but fell on his face. He was handcuffed and taken to the Midtown-North station, where he allegedly demanded the cuffs come off.
