'Transformers' star ordered to complete a three-month course of treatment for alcoholism
Shia LaBeouf has pleaded guilty to charges of disorderly conduct at a Broadway revival of Cabaret in June.
The sentencing judge ordered the Transformers star to complete a three-month course of treatment for alcoholism.
The LA Times reports that the offence and the actor’s guilty plea will be wiped from his record if he can stay out of trouble for six months.
LaBeouf was arrested in June outside Studio 54 in New York where he is reported to have shouted at police officers: “Do you know who I am?”
The court record stated that the actor had been smoking in the audience, shouting at the actors and using abusive language.
The arrest followed a series of instances of bizarre behaviour from the star of Indiana Jones And The Kingdom Of The Crystal Skull. He walked out of a Berlin Film Festival press conference for the Lars Von Trier film Nymphomaniac in February. He later appeared on the red carpet for the film’s premiere wearing a paper bag on his head emblazoned with the words, “I am not famous anymore”.
LaBeouf will be seen next in the WWII drama Fury released October 24. He plays a member of a Sherman tank crew led by Brad Pitt. Apparently the actor took a method approach to his role and didn’t wash for weeks during the shoot.
