26 Jun 2014
Actor Shia LaBeouf, who very publicly exited the Broadway bow of Lyle Kessler's Orphans, also exited the June 26 performance of Broadway's Cabaret — in handcuffs — Roundabout Theatre Company representatives confirmed to Playbill.com.
According to RTC press representatives, LaBeouf "was disruptive during act one and escorted out of Studio 54 at intermission."
Additionally, various actors, audience members and passersby posted on social media that the actor was seen surrounded by police officers.

This is not LaBeouf's first run in with the authorities. In 2007 the actor was arrested at a Walgreens drugstore in Chicago.
LaBeouf, known for his work on the film "Transformers," infamously exited the 2013 Broadway produciton of Orphans and was replaced by actor Ben Foster. Click here to read Alec Baldwin's account of why LaBeouf was ousted from Orphans.
