LaBeouf hurt in crash, held for DUI
Indiana Jones co-star Shia LaBeouf was arrested on suspicion of drunk driving on July 27 after an early morning car accident in which he was injured, authorities said.
The 22-year-old actor was driving a pickup truck that was involved in a 3 am collision at a street intersection in Hollywood, Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Sgt Scott Wolf said.
“It was immediately apparent to officers responding on the scene that LaBeouf was intoxicated and he was subsequently placed under arrest,” Wolf said.
LaBeouf was taken to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center where he was being treated for a minor head injury and injuries to his left hand and a knee Wolf said. A woman passenger in LaBeouf’s truck and the driver of the other vehicle were not seriously injured.
Wolf said LaBeouf was booked and then released for misdemeanour DUI, or driving under the influence.
Wolf did not know the identities of the woman or the other driver. The accident occurred when LaBeouf, who was headed northbound, tried to make a left turn at an intersection, Wolf said. A collision occurred and LaBeouf’s car rolled over.
The cause of the crash remained under investigation and Wolf did not have additional details.Two of LaBeouf’s publicists did not immediately return calls seeking comment on July 27. Neither did two attorneys listed as having represented him.
