Shia LaBeouf involved in Vancouver bar brawl?

Shia LaBeouf may have taken a bruising outside a Vancouver bar last week. According to local news reports, the actor got into a bar brawl which ended with a fist to his noggin.

The alleged altercation was filmed by TMZ, and video shows a man who appears to be Shia on the sidewalk being pummeled by a shirtless fellow.

After the gentleman who appears to be 25-year-old LaBeouf sustains a punch to the head, he tries to chase after his unidentified fighting partner, but others - presumably some friends - hold him back. “You gotta lay low right now,” a pal appears to counsel.

The “Transformers” star is in Vancouver filming “The Company You Keep,” and according to local radio station News1130, both LaBeouf and his alleged assailant were kicked out of downtown bar Cinema Public House by security, which is how the reported incident ended up outside.

“It's not exactly clear what provoked the attack but LaBeouf threw down with another man inside the Cinema Public House,” reads the report from News1130. "Security kicked both parties out and that's when the other man tore his shirt off and started beating the actor.”

The 25-year-old seems to be getting a bit of a reputation for bar fighting. According to the Hollywood Reporter, Shia was handcuffed after a fight outside Mad Bull’s Tavern in Sherman Oaks, California in February.

The way the incident was described by Mad Bull employee Sammy Cutler sounds familiar: "There was an exchange of words [with another man] and Shia got punched in the face."

    I give it 5 or less years that this kid will be dead. He can't stop and loves the "edge" he believes he's portraying. Not a bad actor, but he'll vaporize quickly. He's enjoying this, but it will catch up with him....and then POOF! Obituary.

    I found i can stop any fight by ripping my shirt off. I do and every1 stops to stare. Then they have to touch them to see if their real. They act like they never saw a small girl with big ones bfore. It works every time tho. I should get a job being a bouncer right ?

    How tragic that such a talented young man, who has a lot going for him is hit in the head & down on the ground...and people are commenting as if it's OK with them that it happened. It is obvious that Shia is hurting & has got a drinking problem. He is angry about something & needs professional help. This kind of behaviour happens all through the USA because of drugs & booze. We don't need another Lindsay Lohan or worse, Heath Ledger. Poor Shia has had something happen in his life to trigger this behaviour & it's tragic to have it be so public. If you have any compassion, why don't you pray for him. You might find you will feel better about yourself.

    I think Justin Beiber could kick Shia's butt. I'd pay to see that. How do you expect to win a fight with a name like Shia.

    Tracie, did you just want everyone to know about your private life? Your comments have absolutely nothing to do with Shia L. being in a fight. Are you stupid or just mentally retarded.

      Traci thinks that telling the same tasteless joke, 10000000 times, is funny.
      In reality, it's boring. You know it, I know it, and everyone else on earth knows it.
      Traci does not know it because traci is a mindless boob with sh!t for brains.

      But the fun thing can insult traci all you like. Traci is gutless (along with being boring), and is afraid of responding to your insults.

      Observer....the village called....they need their idiot back....go home.

      Seeing as how you seem to demonize 'liberals', I must ask you: How does it feel to be a 'conservative'? How does it feel to be on the wrong side of every issue in the universe?

    Shia needs to protect his money maker. Not have it pummeled outside a club. Maybe his gf dumped him?

      It's more likely that he got heckled and decided to be a dbag about it instead of being the bigger man. This isn't the first time Shia has earned a beating and had it caught on tape. Apparently he's somehow even worse at fighting than he is at acting.
