No, he wasn’t charge with a DUI or caught with cocaine. He didn’t portray a stripper in a widely-panned thriller or crash his Mercedes into a sidewalk. Shia LaBeouf, a former Disney kid like Lindsay Lohan, only committed the crime of hanging out at a drug store while he was a little buzzed.
Misdemeanor criminal trespassing charges were dropped against the young “Transformers” star today. LaBouf was arrested and charged last month in Chicago for refusing to leave a Walgreens.
When news of the arrest first hit, I thought this was the beginning of the end for Shia. It looked like he was following Lohan’s path from talented Disney player to hit movie star to celebrity rehab case. Surprisingly, Shia hasn’t gotten into any other trouble since this mishap and he won’t be spending any time in jail. It looks like he was just out celebrating wrapping production on the new “Indiana Jones” movie and got a little carried away last month. That’s what it looks like anyway. So, Shia LaBeouf’s Hollywood nice guy image is saved … but we’ll be watching.
