Shia Labeouf pleaded guilty in a New York court Wednesday to disorderly conduct charges stemming from his recent Broadway meltdown, according to CNN. As part of the plea agreement, the actor has reportedly agreed to a three month alcohol treatment program.
LaBeouf was arrested June 24 outside a “Cabaret” performance “for refusing to leave a theatrical performance when asked, for creating unreasonable noise and using obscene language outside of Studio 54, and for spitting at a police officer at the Midtown North police precinct,” according to Assistant District Attorney Alyssa Russell’s testimony in court on Wednesday. He was charged with criminal trespassing and two counts of disorderly conduct.
As TheWrap previously reported, his lawyers had been working with prosecutors since July to reach an agreement that would resolve the charges, and as part of Wednesday’s plea arrangement, the charges of trespass and harassment were dropped.
The subsequent sentence requires LaBeouf to continue receiving alcohol treatment for the next three months. Previously the 28-year-old “Transformers” star had been undergoing voluntary treatment.
“Contrary to previous erroneous reports, Shia LaBeouf has not checked into a rehabilitation facility but he is voluntarily receiving treatment for alcohol addiction,” a representative of LaBeouf’s told TheWrap in July. “He understands that these recent actions are a symptom of a larger health problem and he has taken the first of many necessary steps towards recovery.”
LaBeouf is scheduled to be back in court Nov. 12 to show he’s completed the required alochol treatment. “Fury,” his upcoming World War II action film with Brad Pitt, hits theaters Oct. 17.
