Shia LaBouf was charged with criminal trespass, disorderly conduct and harassment in Manhattan criminal court this morning (July 24) but may never face charges or spend a day in jail. Is he getting a celebrity pass?
Labouf, 28, was arrested on June 26 after disrupting a performance of the musical Cabaret in a drunken rage at Studio 54 in Manhattan. The show stars Broadway veteran Alan Cumming.
He made a brief appearance in Manhattan Criminal Court to be formally charged over the incident. But assistant prosecutor Alyssa Russell told Judge Ann Scherzer that a plea deal was in the works, according to The New York Daily News.
LaBouf is being represent by lawyer G. Robert Gage Jr. He declined to comment as did the actor and “Transformers” star.
The incident unfolded after LaBouf engaged in a day of drinking. He was drunk and was disruptive in the theater, police said. He lit up a cigarette in the no-smoking venue, yelled at the actors on stage and refused to leave.
Police ultimately led him away in handcuffs.
Earlier in the day, LaBouf was spotted on the street harassing homeless people.
He’s expected to return to court in the fall, where his case is likely to be resolved in a plea deal.
