In case you haven’t been checking what’s Trending on Facebook, Shia Labeouf got arrested last night for behaving like Shia Labeouf. This barely counts as news anymore; Unfortunately, Labeouf has chosen melting down in public as his new career path. There are weird and sad details like him crying, or the police having to cover him with a face mask because he kept spitting at them, or him chasing after a homeless man just before the arrest, which took place at Studio 54 during a performance of Cabaret. There’s no telling what’s going on with Labeouf, if he’s actually battling some pretty terrifying demons or just having a go at the celebrity obsessed culture that’s engulfed him.
What we do know is this: When Shia Labeouf was released from jail this morning, he looked one part disheveled and 8 parts fucking badass. He’s obviously been working out, and we loved the torn shirt look. His hair should be in the dictionary next to “bedhead,” and the tapered jeans and combat boot look is vintage Young Hollywood rebellion. If I could pull it off, I would. Here are some pics for you to drool at.

This just in: TMZ has posted photos of Labeouf chasing after a man in Times Square, apparently over a bag of McDonald’s, according to an eyewitness. The NY Post has also posted a very eerie video of the incident, eerie because the whole thing is scored to a steel drum version of Pharrell’s “Happy.” Whoa.
