Shia LaBeouf has been arrested for suspected drink driving following a car crash on Sunday.

The 22-year-old actor’s truck is said to have flipped over twice after it collided with another vehicle in Hollywood.

He and a female passenger, who is thought to have crawled from the wreckage, were taken to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in LA.

Both escaped with minor injuries, as did the driver of the other vehicle.

Shia was later arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol.

‘[Shia] showed outward signs of intoxication,’ LA County Sheriff S Wolf tells Us Weekly.

‘Officers at the scene determined that neither his passenger, nor the other driver, were seriously injured so the charge is misdemeanor DUI.’

In November, Shia was charged with misdemeanor criminal trespassing, although the charges were later dropped.

He has also appeared in court for unlawfully smoking in a public place.

‘Shia is currently recovering from extensive hand surgery with plans to return to work on the set of Transformers 2 within one month,’ his lawyers said in a statement.
