The 'Transformers' star is drinking in a scruffy bar in London with 'Nymphomaniac' co-star Mia Goth before getting mad and involved in a scuffle with a student prankster.
Shia LaBeouf was fighting over a baseball cap with a student when he recently visited SE14, a dirty and dark student pub in South London suburb. The actor was reportedly mad at the guy, who grabbed his baseball cap and refused to give it back.
According to The Sun, SE14's customers were startled when they saw the famous actor walking into the bar. They then took pictures with the "Disturbia" actor while he spent hours drinking in the bistro. "No one could believe that a well-known Hollywood star had rocked up at a bar in dingy SE14," an eyewitness shared. "Everyone was getting their photos taken with him."
The owner of the bistro, Mark Harris, confirmed that Mia Goth, Shia's co-star in "Nymphomaniac", was coming together with the actor. "Her mum lives just down the road. She came down to see her mum and he tagged along," the landlord explained.
However, the happy atmosphere changed as soon as the mischief-maker grabbed the 26-year-old actor's baseball cap, a souvenir from Laos, which he reportedly wore to cover up his identity. The prankster refused to return it, leading him and Shia into a scrap before the bar's customers tried to stop the fight. "He did get a bit frustrated and there was a bit of a scuffle," Mark recounted.
"The scrap all started when this guy took his hat. I think he was just joking, but Shia didn't like it. The guy just took it off him and wouldn't give it back. He tried to get it back and they ended up tussling," an observer revealed. "It was handbags really. But it shows that even Hollywood stars can't avoid grief down this way."
The "Lawless" star then left the pub in a taxi. No call was made to the police. So far, the actor's camp hasn't commented on the incident.
It wasn't the first time the "Eagle Eye" actor got involved in a bar brawl. Back in October 2011, he was kicked out of Cinema Public House pub in Vancouver, BC after he was drunk and fought with a patron following a disagreement. The scuffle went on outside the bar. At the time, the patron punched him to the ground.
