More weirdness from Shia LaBeouf: The Transformers star was handcuffed by police and hauled out of the Broadway show Cabaret at Studio 54 last night, ABC reports. Sources tell the New York Post that the actor was smoking in the theater, yelling during the performance, and slapping random people on the back of the head. Witnesses saw him in tears outside the theater, but he was allegedly belligerent at the precinct, spitting and swearing at police officers, sources say.

He has been charged with one count of criminal trespassing and two counts of disorderly conduct, reports the New York Times. The increasingly erratic 28-year-old head-butted somebody in a brawl at a London bar earlier this year—and appeared at a press conference with a paper bag over his head the next month.
