Shia LaBusted: Actor LaBeouf arrested for assault at anti-Trump protest (VIDEO)
Actor Shia LaBeouf was arrested in New York after an altercation at an anti-Trump art installation. Video of the alleged attack shows LaBeouf pushing a man after he made a comment about Hitler into a camera.
The installation, titled “He Will Not Divide Us,” invites the public to stand in front of a live streaming camera in Queens and repeat the phrase. A video uploaded to the installation's Twitter account shows LaBeouf, who created the installation, pushing a man after he said, “Hitler did nothing wrong.”
The account is crediting the arrest to the incident, while TMZ are crediting it to another incident in which LaBeouf allegedly grabbed a man’s scarf and “scratched him in the process.”
Video of the arrest shows him being handcuffed by police as participants repeat the phrase into the camera.
Following his arrest, the hashtag #FreeShia was used on Twitter to support his release. LaBeouf was released early on Thursday morning, though it's unclear at this stage whether the actor has been charged.
Previous video from the live stream shows a heated LeBoeuf at the site shouting down an alleged white supremacist who attempted to sabotage the installation. Another video shows him licking the face of a counter protester.
