Actor and performance artist Shia LaBeouf was arrested and charged with misdemeanor assault and harassment after an altercation at an anti-Trump protest in Queens. Video from the livestream shows the alleged assault and LaBeouf’s subsequent arrest. His “He Will Not Divide Us” protest has been live streaming since last Friday.
Around 12:35am, LaBeouf got into an altercation with an unidentified 25 year old man. The disagreement, according to police, wasn’t about Trump. LaBeouf pulled the man by his scarf on livestream and scratched his face.
Video from the livestream shows the 30 year old being led away by NYPD officers outside of the Museum of the Moving Image in Astoria.
Authorities said the man didn’t get medical attention after the encounter.
