Several outlets are reporting that Shia LaBeouf has been arrested on suspicion of a DUI last night, after being in a fender bender in Hollywood in the wee hours in the morning. “It was immediately apparent to officers responding on the scene that LaBeouf was intoxicated and he was subsequently placed under arrest,” said LA County Sheriff S. Wolf. As you’ll recall, he was cited last year for causing a ruckus at a Wal Greens in Chicago.
Is this the beginning of the end for Shia LaBeouf? The curse of the child star has stricken so many former child actors that it’s easy to lose count. The latest reminder comes to us via the A&E show, The Two Coreys, which show the end stages of the downward spiral that is Corey Haim in his battle with drugs and alcohol. Let’s just hope this is Shia sowing his wild oats, and not something deeper and darker, that will ultimately land him in a disturbing reality show on A&E in twenty years, featuring him in a desperate last attempt to land Indy 7, The Legend of the Iron Monkey.
