Shia LaBeouf Arrested At Protest Art Project


Shia LaBeouf, who has been standing outside a New York City museum chanting "He will not divide us" ever since the inauguration of President Donald Trump.

However, whilst they will not divide us, it sure seems they may arrest us. LaBeouf was arrested after an alleged altercation with another, unidentified man. It is reported he pulled a scarf from the individual and scratched his face and also pushed him. The unidentified man refused medical aid. It is unclear what caused the scuffle.


LaBeouf, in an interview on Monday with the Associated Press at the site of his art-protest, claims that the livestream/art/protest isn't necessarily a Trump oppositional piece.

"We're anti-division out here. Everyone's invited," LaBeouf said. "I'm just saying, 'Be nice to each other.'"

Such statement does seem a little disingenuous considering the project started the day of Trump's inauguration and will continue 24 hours a day for the next four years, if all goes according to plan.

LaBeouf is facing a misdemeanour assault charge. It is presumed he will return to the art project when he can. Others are encouraged to participate.
