Shia LaBeouf arrested for DUI after wreck



Tbdshialabeouf072908 In case you missed it over the weekend, Tinseltown's latest brand name Shia LaBeouf was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence after he crashed his pickup into another vehicle at a West Hollywood intersection early Sunday, the AP reports.

LaBeouf was trying to make a left turn at a West Hollywood intersection around 3 a.m. when the accident occured, rolling the truck over, L.A. 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. Oh, and fun fact: The accident happened at the intersection of La Brea and Fountain avenues, where the High Voltage tattoo parlor of LA Ink fame is located.

Shia was booked and released for misdemeanor DUI, down from TMZ's initial report of felony DUI, probably because he was a movie star. A female passenger in his truck and the driver of the other car were thankfully not injured, but if yet another actor gets away with DUI and another slap on the wrist from an L.A. court, we may as well declare La-La Land the Wild West.
