Shia LaBeouf ‘involved in street brawl’

Shia LaBeouf was allegedly involved in a street brawl over the weekend.

The 25-year-old Transformers star got into three fights in Vancouver, Canada, and appeared visibly drunk, RadarOnline are reporting.

Shia apparently was partying by himself on the Granville Street nightclub strip in the early hours of Friday morning when he became part of a few altercations.

“He got into a confrontation with a couple of people,” an eyewitness told the site. “He took a few punches to the face. He was obviously pretty intoxicated.”

The bystander said that Shia had to be pulled away from a patron of the bar by a security guard when the pair got into a fight inside the Cinema Public House around 12.30am.

He apparently exchanged some heated words with the man before security threw them both out.

But once they got outside the patron, said to be called Mike, saw Shia waiting for a taxi and ripped off his shirt and started to assault the Hollywood star.

Shia got hit to the ground and received at least three punches to his head before bystanders came to help but the actor once again got upset and had to be held back.

“The guy had to tell him something like, ‘Calm down or I’ll have to lay you out.’ Then Shia just put his hands up and gave up,” the witness said.

Shia was seen later in the weekend going for a coffee with grazes and swelling to the left side of his face.

The actor has been in trouble before. He was handcuffed but subsequently released earlier this year after a fight at a bar in Sherman Oaks, California.

He also was arrested back in 2007 for DUI and was arrested in 2008 for being intoxicated at a drug store in Chicago and was charged with misdemeanour criminal trespassing.

    Driving a $900,000 Porsche 918 Spyder to the future

    It’s more than just its inherent speed, or the whooshing noise that fills the cabin like a school choir jamming with James Hetfield. It’s what it represents in an industry full of skeptics. It’s a portal into the future – a time capsule left by some mad scientist born decades too soon. It’s something that shouldn’t exist. And yet it does.

    Arrest warrant sought for S. Korea ferry captain

    South Korean prosecutors sought arrest warrants Friday for the captain and two crew members of the ferry that capsized two days before with hundreds of children on board, a coastguard official said. The captain and most of his 28 crew managed to escape the ferry, and have been criticised for abandoning the ship when so many were still trapped on board. Tracking data from the Maritime Ministry showed the ferry made a sharp turn just before sending its first distress signal on Wednesday morning. Prosecutors said Friday that preliminary investigations showed that captain Lee Joon-Seok had handed the helm to his third officer before the ferry capsized.
