Actor Shia LaBeouf was arrested early Thursday after allegedly assaulting a man near his anti-Trump livestream project at a New York City museum, the Associated Press reported.
Police said that LaBeouf pulled on the scarf of a 25-year-old man outside the Museum of the Moving Image in Queens, scratching his face. He then pushed the man, police claim. The incident was apparently caught on the livestream.
LaBeouf and two collaborators created the livestream, which they say will run 24 hours a day for the entirety of Trump’s first term. It consists of an outdoor white wall with the words “HE WILL NOT DIVIDE US” written on it, with a camera underneath.
LaBeouf has invited the public to appear in front of the camera; the Transformers actor has been a frequent presence, dancing and chanting, “He will not divide us.”
LaBeouf faces a misdemeanor assault charge and a harassment violation, according to CNN. LaBeouf was arrested and released.
