Shia LaBeouf's luck turns as he completes alcohol treatment and all charges are dropped

2015-03-23 18:00

Los Angeles - Shia LaBeouf has completed an alcohol treatment programme.

The Fury actor appeared in Manhattan Criminal Court on Friday for a progress hearing in a case relating to his bizarre conduct at a performance of the musical Cabaret last June, when he shouted obscenities, smoked cigarettes and slapped one of the actors on the backside, and was told the case will be dismissed if he stays out of trouble for six months.

Last September, Shia pleaded guilty to two counts of disorderly conduct, one count of trespassing, one count of criminal trespassing and harassment in the second degree but the charges will be dropped unless he is rearrested.

Judge Ann Scherzer told him: "As long as you stay out of trouble for...six months from today, this case will be dismissed and sealed."

The 28-year-old actor said nothing during the brief court appearance.

The Transformers star recently spoke out about the incident and admitted he worried he wouldn't survive after he was taken into police custody.

He recalled: "I get to the station and I quickly realise, I'm not supposed to be here. I'm not made for this set up.

"So I'm like, 'You gotta do something. You gotta do something, man. You're gonna die in here.' So I turn into Tupac and now I'm ripping my shirt off and doing push-ups like, 'Don't mess with me dawg.' And the guy's like, 'What are you in here for?' And I'm like, Cabaret.

"So then they finger print me, do the whole business, and I'm like, 'I gotta get out of this little cell with these six dudes. I'm tripping.' So I figured I'm gonna spit on this cop's shoe, that's my way out."
