It’s being reported that Shia LaBeouf was BANNED from an LA-area bar & restaurant after a night of acting strange and peeing outside on a wall, but that’s not all true, an eyewitness tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.
Shia LaBeouf, 28, is having a bad week. The actor was arrested for allegedly smoking marijuana during a June 26 performance of Cabaret — and since that incident, even more troubling stories about the actor’s recent bizarre behavior have come out. While rumors are swirling Shia was banned from The Local Peasant in Sherman Oaks last month, an eyewitness tells us that’s NOT true!
Shia LaBeouf: Actor NOT Banned From The Local Peasant
Shia acted up and peed on a wall outside The Local Peasant, a Sherman Oaks restaurant and bar — and that act got him banned from the place, according to TMZ. The report states that Shia got caught peeing in the parking lot, got in trouble for it, then tried to go back in the restaurant, but was told to leave — and never come back.
An eyewitness confirms to HollywoodLife.com that Shia did pee outside in the parking lot, but he’s NOT banned from the establishment! “The Local Peasant is just that — a local place — and we make sure everyone is responsible for their own actions, and Shia knows that,” an eyewitness from the restaurant and bar tells us EXCLUSIVELY.
“I can confirm that he’s been here and what’s been reported happened, and I have spoken to Shia about it,” the eyewitness explains. “Shia is in the understanding that he’s more than welcome to come back in, but he’ll be closely monitored and he’s on a short leash. We really do wish him all the best.”
Our source says the bar made sure Shia knew he’s NOT unwelcome — and they’d help him if he needs it. “I told Shia, ‘Listen, if you need anything — just let us know — we’re here to help.’ He hasn’t reached out yet, but he knows we wish him the best.”
Bottom line — even though Shia got in trouble for causing a scene at The Local Peasant, he can come back if he behaves!
Shia LaBeouf: Actor Got Into Fight With Homeless Man Before Arrest
In other bizarre Shia news, the actor was also allegedly in a fight with a homeless man hours before his Cabaraet arrest. Shia actually chased the man around the street in New York City, according to reports. Yikes.
Whatever’s going on with Shia, we hope he gets the help or support he needs.
What do YOU think about Shia’s incident at the bar, HollywoodLifers? Would you have banned Shia, or let him back in “on a tight leash” like The Local Peasant did? Let us know!
