Shia LaBeouf Needs ‘Psychiatric Evaluation,’ James Woods Says

Actor pleads for compassion for his ”Surf’s Up“ co-star after public drunkenness arrest

Shia LaBeouf should have his head examined. At least, that’s the word from LaBeouf’s fellow actor, James Woods.

On Tuesday, after footage of LaBeouf cursing out police during his arrest over the weekend was released, Woods took to Twitter and noted that he’s not a doctor and he doesn’t even play one on TV, but it doesn’t take even a fake medical degree to see that LaBeouf needs help.

“This is a talented young man who clearly needs help. Is there no loved one who can get him help?” Woods wrote in a tweet linking to a media story about the arrest video. “This is abnormal.”

Woods added, “I’m not a medical professional, but any rational observer of this behavior would encourage psychiatric evaluation. He clearly needs help.”

Despite their differences of opinion on the current Leader of the Free World — Woods supports him, LaBeouf not so much — Woods encouraged his Twitter followers not to mock LaBeouf, which he said would be “cruel and potentially very harmful.”

“Behavior this erratic needs compassion and evaluation. Making jokes at his expense is cruel and potentially very harmful,” Woods, who along with LaBeouf and others voiced the 2007 animated comedy “Surf’s Up,” wrote.

On Tuesday, video from LaBeouf’s arrest emerged, in which the actor called a police officer a “dumb f–k” and a “stupid b-tch.”

LaBeouf continued, “You got a President who don’t give a s–t about you, you’re stuck in a police force that don’t give a f–k about you and you want to arrest white people who give a f–k, who ask for cigarettes?”

“I came up to you trying to be nice, you stupid b-tch,” LaBeouf added. “I came up to you asking for a cigarette, you dumb f-ck! Why would I ask for a cigarette if I was racist?”

LaBeouf was arrested in Savannah around 4 a.m. and booked on suspicion of disorderly conduct, obstruction and public drunkenness.
