Shia LaBeouf Involved in DUI Accident
Young Hollywood’s troubles continue as yet another one is arrested for DUI.
No stranger to poor decisions himself, Disney favorite Shia LaBeouf will have to put filming the Transformers sequel on hold, as he is being kept at Cedars Sinai Medical Center for an injured left hand, as well as being charged for a DUI.
Officials confirm that the accident occurred early Sunday morning in Hollywood. LaBeouf was making a left turn when his vehicle collided into another; his left hand will require surgery as the other two women involved suffered minor injuries.

Before checking into the hospital, the Indiana Jones star was held up in an L.A. sheriff’s custody, getting his DUI booked as a misdemeanor.
While the charge may come as a shock to some, LaBeouf has certainly had experience with the law when it comes to drunkenness. Last year, the Los Angeles native was arrested in Chicago for refusing to leave a Walgreens when he was clearly intoxicated. Charges were later dropped as Walgreens decided not to pursue the case. He was also cited once for deliberately lighting up in a no-smoking zone; although he was not arrested for this, it did tell fans and the rest of the general public that our little Disney star grew up and joined the ranks of his peers when it comes to disobeying the law.
In all of this, with the fact that Shia has millions, why on earth did he not have a driver taking him from point A to point B?
