Shia LaBeouf has been arrested and charged with assault at his anti-Trump rally in Queens, NY, CNN reports. A New York Police Department spokesman said the actor was allegedly involved in an altercation with a man outside the Museum of the Moving Image, where LaBeouf is hosting his livestream.
The actor reportedly grabbed the scarf of the 25-year-old "causing a scratch to the man’s face." LaBeouf was arrested at 12:30 a.m. Thursday and was later released after being charged with misdemeanor assault and harassment.
LaBeouf announced his HE WILL NOT DIVIDE US livestream outside of the Museum of the Moving Image on Inauguration Day (Jan. 20), which will go on for the duration of Trump's tenure in office. The official website explains it "acts as a show of resistance or insistence, opposition or optimism, guided by the spirit of each individual participant and the community."
While the public art installation is seen as an anti-Trump movement, the actor stated otherwise. "We're anti-division out here. Everyone's invited," LaBeouf said to the Associated Press. "I'm just saying, 'Be nice to each other.'"
