Criminal Charges Facing Shia LaBeouf Have Been Dropped

Criminal charges facing Shia LaBeouf have just been dropped. The 21-year-old actor got himself into trouble last month for refusing to leave a Chicago Walgreens. After the drug store staff called the police on Nov. 4, the allegedly drunk-acting Transformers star was taken into custody briefly before being released for “very courteous and polite” behavior, according to officials at the time. Mr. LaBeouf only had to appear before the judge for a few minutes this morning, reportedly smiling as he learned that the misdemeanor criminal trespassing charge had been flushed. He next stars alongside Harrison Ford in Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, which opens next year. [AP]
