Shia LaBeouf removed from Broadway theater

Posted: Updated:

Police say actor Shia LaBeouf (SHY'-uh luh-BUF') was taken out of a New York City theater for being disorderly and yelling obscenities during the performance.

It happened Thursday night at Studio 54 in Manhattan at the Broadway show "Cabaret."
Police say LaBeouf used obscene language and interfered with the show.

A spokesman for "Cabaret" says LaBeouf was "disruptive during Act 1" and was escorted out of the theater at intermission.

The 28-year-old star of the "Transformers" franchise was arrested on charges of disorderly conduct and criminal trespass. Early Friday, the actor remained in police custody. Calls and emails to his attorney, agent, publicist and manager were not immediately returned.

LaBeouf's other films include "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull," ''Disturbia" and "Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps."
