Shia LaBeouf Arrested for Public Intoxication Again & We're Sadly Not Surprised (VIDEO)

shia labeoufLooks like Shia LaBeouf is still, well, being Shia LaBeouf: The 29-year-old actor was arrested outside of a bar in Texas on Thursday night and booked for misdemeanor public intoxication after reportedly jaywalking in front of police -- and continuing to do it even after they told him to stop. Uh-oh!

According to TMZ, witnesses say LaBeouf was acting "bizarrely," and that before the arrest, he and the woman he was with were denied entrance into a bar for being too intoxicated already -- at which point Shia allegedly started swearing and tried to force his way in.

Bad behavior, to be sure, but definitely in character for LaBeouf, who's been busted for being outrageously drunk and out-of-control in public before (remember last year when he was arrested for disorderly conduct and criminal trespass at the Broadway show Cabaret?). After that unfortunate incident, LaBeouf's rep said the actor was "seeking treatment for alcoholism," though he did not apparently go to rehab.

Perhaps he should have? Of course, we don't know for sure that LaBeouf was drunk -- "intoxication" can indicate any number of substances -- but clearly the guy has some unresolved issues to deal with if he wants to stay out of trouble. But who knows? Maybe he doesn't want to stay out of trouble. He's certainly getting a lot of attention for his antics, as evidenced in the following video. Check out the swarm of fans taking pics as LaBeouf gets apprehended:

Crazy, right? A complete circus. Who knows, with an audience like that, maybe LaBeouf feels like everything he does falls into the category of performance art. But it's not a performance: This is real life, and there are no rehearsals. Here's hoping LaBeouf gets the help he really needs, and soon, before something even worse happens.
