It's about time

(Newser) – Did Shia LaBeouf's crazy night on Broadway last week finally convince him it's time to get help? Maybe: After he was kicked out of a theater and arrested Thursday night, LaBeouf checked into rehab in LA yesterday, x17 reports. LaBeouf was also seen toting Alcoholics Anonymous literature, Radar notes, adding that this isn't LaBeouf's first experience with AA: He reportedly celebrated 60 days of sobriety at an AA meeting in 2008, and in 2011 he admitted he was an alcoholic publicly and was seen attending meetings.

As TMZ points out in numerous articles, the Broadway incident was just the latest bit of misbehavior from LaBeouf: Last month he was banned from an LA restaurant for peeing on its outside wall; earlier this month he was recorded trying to fight outside a New York strip club; and hours before his arrest Thursday, he chased a homeless man after a weird argument over a hat the guy was wearing. And then, of course, there was his 2011 bar brawl, his 2014 bar brawl, that whole debacle with Alec Baldwin, the paper bag incident, and his bizarre plagiarized apology tour.
