On Thursday morning, actor Shia LaBeouf was arrested on suspicion of misdemeanor assault and harassment.
Police were flagged down after Shia allegedly grabbed and pushed a man outside the Museum of the Moving Image in New York City. An NYPD spokesperson reported that LaBeouf caused “a scratch to the man’s face” when he grabbed at the man’s scarf and then pushed him.
Though he reportedly fell to the ground, the 25-year-old man did not seek medical attention and remained at the scene.
According to the New York Daily News, Shia was charged and released on the same day.
As part of his art project He Will Not Divide Us, LaBeouf has been protesting Trump’s presidency with a message of “anti-division.” He told the AP, "I’m just saying, ‘Be nice to each other.’”
After his arrest, the #HeWillNotDivideUs Twitter handle claimed, "For those of you who don't know what happened. Shia was attacked by a nazi. Shia got arrested. Nazi got away. #FreeShia #FreeShia."
Earlier this week, Shia made headlines after he shouted down an alleged white supremacist who was trying to disrupt Shia's project’s “he will not divide us” chant. Watch!
