According to the criminal complaint, LaBeouf stood up in the middle of the show and was yelling loudly at the actors on stage, disrupting the performance. When security confronted LaBeouf to try and remove him from the theatre, he screamed, "F*** you. This is f***ing bullshit. Do you know my life? Do you know who the f*** I am? Do you know who I am?"
LaBeouf also reportedly spit at a police offer when he was brought into the station for processing, and the spit landed at the officer's feet.
