(Newser) – Friday was yet another eventful night for Shia LaBeouf: The 29-year-old actor was arrested in Austin for public intoxication, police tell the Hollywood Reporter. Witnesses tell TMZ that LaBeouf, who is in the Texas capital for the Austin City Limits music festival, appeared to be completely wasted on alcohol or drugs at around 7:30pm when he kept jaywalking in front of police after they had ordered him not to. Another witness says LaBeouf and a female companion had been refused entry to a bar just before the arrest because they were too drunk. In a press release, Austin police confirmed the actor had been arrested and said no more details would be released due to pending adjudication. (In June, LaBeouf needed 20 stitches after a head-through-window stunt went wrong on the set of American Honey.)
