We had hoped that Shia LaBeouf was on the upswing after sending himself to rehab following his well publicized Broadway meltdown. We haven’t heard much from him in the past few months.
Until this weekend, when LaBeouf was spotted jaywalking in Austin, Texas. Officers reportedly asked him to stop, and he continued. He became belligerent and argumentative and was taken into police custody.
Austin police are declining to comment further on the incident as the case is pending adjudication, however, Shia is tweeting:
I talk, just not to you

It is difficult to watch a talented actor like Shia LaBeouf continue a pattern of self destructive behavior. And while we frequently find amusement in the public meltdowns of celebrities, Shia LaBeouf is making me sad. When he was walking around with bags on his head and doing weird art installations, it was kind of funny, but now, it’s just sad. I truly hope he gets the help he needs.0
