Shia LaBeouf arrested on 6th street and charged with Public Intoxication

Late Friday evening Austin Police released the following statement along with Shia LeBeouf's booking photo.

On October 9, 2015 at 7:33 p.m., Shia Saide LaBeouf was arrested by the Austin Police Department for Public Intoxication at the intersection of 6th Street and San Jacinto Boulevard.

Due to pending adjudication, no further details will be released at this time.

According to TMZ...

Shia LaBeouf was just arrested in Austin, Texas ... and a witness says the actor was blitzed, out of control and disobeyed police.

It happened at around 7:45 PM CT outside a bar on 6th street.  A witness says Shia was either extremely drunk or high on drugs when he ran down the street and jaywalked in front of police. 

They warned him not to do it but he continued, acting bizarrely.

Cops subdued him and put him in cuffs.

Shia, who's been to rehab, has been dogged by substance abuse problems.  He had a similar situation in NYC last year, where he was arrested after acting crazy at a Broadway play. 

He's in town for the Austin City Limits music festival.

Video and photos of the arrest can be found on
