After a less-than-perfect weekend which included a seemingly substance-induced blow-up in New York leading to his arrest and subsequent disorderly conduct charge, Shia LaBeouf is finally seeking help.
X17online can report, exclusively, that the troubled actor is getting help at a celebrity-frequented treatment facility in Hollywood.
We followed the actor from his Hollywood Hills home, just an hour ago, to a private facility where other stars have sought treatment -- driven by someone believed to be from the rehab facility. When the car arrived at the gated drive to the center, a nurse and security guard were there to great Shia. In fact, earlier in the day when we spotted Shia in his driveway, we noticed his was carrying the Alcoholics Anonymous Big Blue Book.
Our photographer tells us: "Shia was nervous; he didn't look good all morning. He was looking down and wasn't even talking to his driver. It looked like he didn't want to do it, but he knew he had to."
After arriving back in Los Angeles Sunday night, Shia has stayed out of trouble, hiding in his Hollywood Hills home.
The Transformers star was arrested on charges of disorderly conduct, criminal trespass and harassment last Thursday at the Broadway show Cabaret. According to reports, the Hollywood bad boy was yelling obscenities and acting erratically during the first act of the play, and when security guards asked him to leave he flew into a rage.
This isn't the first time LaBeouf has caused trouble by any means ... he was arrested by LA police in 2005 for assault with a deadly weapon after he threatened to drive into his neighbor's car. He didn't stop there -- he later showed up at his neighbor's house wielding a knife and making threats.
In 2007 he was arrested at a Chicago Walgreens when he refused to leave the property when security asked him to do so. He was later charged with criminal trespassing.
At the Berlin film festival earlier this year, he plagarized a famous quote by a soccer player at a press conference and later opened himself up to public criticism when he invited anyone who wanted to (an X17 writer included) to berate him in a small, dark room at a West Hollywood storefront.
For now, it's unclear whether Shia checked himself in for in-patient treatment at the facility or if he'll head home this afternoon following intake and therapy. Stay tuned for updates ...
