Read Metro's original story below:

Actor Shia LaBeouf was arrested and escorted from a Broadway show Thursday night after he allegedly yelled during a performance and threatened other patrons, according to the NYPD.

The former "Transformers" star disrupted the first act of "Cabaret" at Studio 54 theater on West 54th Street, cops said. LaBeouf, 28, threatened other theater-goers and was "verbally abusive" to Studio 54 security when he was asked to leave, the NYPD said.

When the cops arrived, he started yelling at them too, police said. He was escorted from the theater during intermission and reportedly threatened to hurt police.

A law enforcement official said LaBeouf was "obviously intoxicated" during the outburst.

LaBeouf was charged with harassment, disorderly conduct and criminal trespass, police said. He remained in police custody overnight.

Representatives for LaBeouf didn't respond to requests for comment from other outlets.

In February, LaBeouf began a performance art exhibit "#IAMSORRY" to apologize for his erratic behavior, which included a proclamation the month before that he was retiring from public life.
