Actor Shia LaBeouf, who starred in the "Transformers" movies and the play "Nymphomaniac," was arrested inside New York's Studio 54 during a performance of "Cabaret," police said.
The actor was charged with criminal conduct and disorderly conduct and taken into custody, NYPD detective Brian Sessa said.
LaBeouf was escorted out of the theater by police after refusing to go when asked to do so by security guards, said NYPD spokesman George Tsourovakas.
The 28-year-old actor, who gave police a Los Angeles address, began making a disturbance and then used obscene language and became belligerent after security guards asked him to leave, Tsourovakas said.
"He was being rather difficult and combative, verbally ... to the point where security guards asked him to please leave the premises and he refused," Tsourovakas said. "Police were called and he was detained and arrested."
Charged with disorderly conduct, harassment
LaBeouf, 28, was arraigned on five charges in the tiny, packed courtroom at Manhattan's Midtown Community Court after being arrested on Thursday evening.
He was charged with two counts of disorderly conduct, one count of trespass, one count of criminal trespass and harassment in the second degree.
As the disheveled-looking actor left the court alone wearing a bright blue T-shirt and baggy pants he was mobbed by waiting photographers and reporters.
