LaBeouf Faces DUI Charge After Sunday Morning Car Crash
TRANSFORMERS star SHIA LaBEOUF is in trouble with the law again after he was arrested early on Sunday (27Jul08) and charged with drink driving.
Police questioned the young star after he was involved in a car accident in Los Angeles, and quickly realized he had been drinking.
The Indiana Jones and The Kingdom of The Crystal Skull star’s truck flipped across a road after colliding with another vehicle.
LaBeouf, 22, and his passenger were injured in the accident. The actor smashed his hand in the crash and will reportedly require surgery to fix the damage.
His unnamed passenger sustained a minor head injury, according to TMZ.com.
LaBeouf was taken to hospital following the accident.
Reports suggest the actor will be cited and released on suspicion of a DUI misdemeanor.
LaBeouf’s brushes with the law have hit the headlines on a number of occasions in the past year – in November (07), he was booked on trespassing charges after refusing to leave a drugstore in Chicago, Illinois and in February (08), he was charged with smoking in a prohibited area in California.
