New York: `Transformers` star Shia LaBeouf was arrested for disorderly conduct during a Broadway production of `Cabaret`.

The 28-year-old was being "disruptive" during the show which stars Michelle Williams and Alan Cumming on Thursday, reported a magazine quoting sources.

"He was disruptive during act one and escorted out of Studio 54 at intermission," a source said.

LaBeouf "has been charged with disorderly conduct. He was also charged with criminal trespass. While at Studio 54 he was upsetting patrons, being loud and yelling. He`ll be jailed.

There will be a court appearance for this matter," according to an NYPD spokesperson.

"Shia seemed out of sorts. He was interacting with strangers during the show and slapping peoples` backsides. He was trying to avoid the police and fell. Then he was cursing at the police while being taken into custody," a source said.

LeBeouf was apparently "harassing audience members, harassing actors on the stage, and chain smoking inside the theater."
`Girls` star Lena Dunham, who once had a Twitter fight with LaBeouf, sounded off on the incident on the microblogging website" "I feel you Shia: In 1993 I was carried out of Les Mis screaming because I couldn`t handle the intimations of death."
It is not for the first time that LaBeouf has hit headlines for wrong reasons. The actor had earlier stormed out of a press conference of `Nymphomaniac`. He was also accused of plagiarising a graphic novelist`s work.
