Where's Bumblebee When You Need Him?

I was very sad to read that Shia LaBeouf was arrested this morning, booked for a misdemeanor DUI, and released to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. Apparently, Shia was trying to make a left turn on a Los Angeles street, around 3 a.m., when an accident happened and his car rolled over. The passenger riding with Shia and the driver of the other car involved in the crash were not seriously hurt, and, according to his rep, "Shia is currently recovering from extensive hand surgery with plans to return to work on the set of Transformers 2 within one month."

I happen to be a big fan of Shia, and I find this situation very disappointing. He's so talented, and he seems like a sweet guy with a good head on his shoulders. So, it sucks to see him involved in something like this. But, he's still young. He'll makes mistakes (in this case, a very stupid one) and he'll learn from them, hopefully. I wish him a very speedy recovery... Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen needs to go into post-production asap! I can't wait to see it!

Update: Sheriff Steve Whitemore has confirmed that Shia was found not at fault for his Sunday car crash, despite being cited for a DUI. “The other car ran a red light and, if not already, they will be cited,” said the Sheriff. “They will now be listed as Party One on the report, indicating they were at fault.”

That boy doesn't always have the best of luck.
