According to the NYPD, “Shia took umbrage with this individual for whatever reason, pulling the scarf that was around his head and neck area and in the course of doing so, scratched his face. Shia also pushed this individual. This individual sustained visible injuries, scratches to his face.”
The unidentified male refused medical treatment and was not taken to the hospital, but LaBeouf was taken into custody for his alleged actions. It is unclear what the individual in question may have done to may have provoked LaBeouf.
On Thursday morning, ET confirmed with the Queens district attorney that LaBeouf was "released from police custody overnight," and received a D.A.T. (Desk Appearance Ticket). There was no arraignment or need to post bail, but he will have to report to court on April 7.
