Shia LaBeouf’s court case rescheduled

‘Transformers’ star’s legal troubles not yet at an end due to court date being pushed back.

Nearly a month after being arraigned on two counts of trespassing, two counts of disorderly conduct and one count of harassment in the second degree, Shia LaBeouf’s legal troubles have still not been resolved. The Transformers star appeared in a New York City court on Thursday, but his case has been delayed due to his attorney and the prosecutor telling the judge that they need more time to work out a deal.

According to a criminal complaint in the case, LaBeouf spent a night in jail on Jun. 26 for allegedly standing up during a Studio 54 performance of Cabaret and yelling at the actors on stage. He then proceeded to get aggressive with several police officers, yelling and spitting at them as they arrested him. The actor was released the next morning, and returned to Los Angeles that weekend to begin treatment for alcohol abuse.

“Shia LaBeouf has not checked into a rehabilitation facility but he is voluntarily receiving treatment for alcohol addiction,” said his representative. “He understands that these recent actions are a symptom of a larger health problem and he has taken the first of many necessary steps towards recovery.”

LaBeouf has seemingly been on the right path towards treatment, as he showed up in court looking professional in a brown suit and tan tie, a stark difference from the torn T-shirt he was wearing during his arrest.

According to the Associated Press, the case was rescheduled for Sept. 10 to give LaBeouf’s attorney, G. Robert Gage Jr., more time to arrive at an out-of-court resolution with the prosecutor. Gage Jr. did not talk to reporters as he and LaBeouf left the courthouse, and he has not responded to the Los Angeles Times’ request for comment.
